About the Author

Author Marina Weber is in the ninth grade at Desert Academy. She has been a passionate activist since she was six. Marina believes in righting wrongs and in helping others to be heard, seen, and assisted. She is also fearless and single-minded when it comes to completing her quest. On the journey of the Global Warming Express, Marina learns a big lesson about the limited power of grownups and her own emerging power; and she learns that not every journey-in fact almost none-moves in straight lines or has the outcome you expect.
Illustrator Joanna Whysner also attends Desert Academy. She has been a serious artist since she was very young, and has won many prizes for her art. In the story, Joanna creates her world on paper, in line and color and form. Her sense of mischief and humor help her turn every drawing into a commentary. The journey of the Global Warming Express prompts Joanna to look beneath the surface of her images, and to find the courage to portray what is scary as well as what is nice. She comes to realize that the truth must be told, but that it can be accepted and even embraced.

A memorable book. A modern-day fable sounding the alarm about the very real challenge of climate change. --Tom Udall, U.S. Senator for New Mexico
