“This is a great little book about the history and science behind rubbish, with some wonderful illustrations by Uwe Mayer. It makes a good introduction to the subject and wider environmental issues.”
“A humorous book that follows the history of rubbish. While the text of this book may not be accessible to very young children, it nonetheless has a wealth of information that is made all the more easy to assimilate through the wonderful illustrations that accompany it. ”
