An exciting action romp, exploring environmental destruction, homelessness, politics, animal welfare, and disability, as six ordinary children battle to promote kindness and compassion over cruelty and greed.
Join the Indigo Warriors as they embark on an action-packed adventure, working together to save the environment, help the homeless, care for animals, and change society's attitudes towards the disabled, using both direct action and politics to achieve their goals. The six children aim to promote kindness and compassion over cruelty and greed, assisted by a hapless guardian angel.
When they meet on a school bus, Polly, Angela, Peter, Noah, Josh and Jet decide to join forces and set out to help planet Earth and its inhabitants: human and non-human. Calling themselves the Indigo Warriors, they have meetings, argue a lot, often come to wrong conclusions, and find themselves in danger at the hands of a criminal gang.
Struggling to decide whose cause matters most, they distil their ideas into a 'Manifesto for a Better Life' but can they get their manifesto to the people who matter â¦ the politicians?
About the author
Catherine James is a writer of fiction for children. Born and raised in Scotland, she spent her childhood rescuing stray cats from the old shipyards.

Catherine currently lives in Scotland with a fantastic elderly poodle and equally elderly guinea pig.
Before she was published, Catherine travelled all over the United Kingdom with her job as an occupational therapist. These days, when she can tear herself away from writing, Catherine can be found wandering about the beautiful Scottish countryside. She is always accompanied by her little dog.
‘Indigo Warriors – The Adventure Begins’ is Catherine’s debut publication.
