Review quote

'Perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2, a mix of facts, humour and novelty flaps...This series is proof that the right non-fiction still sells' - The Bookseller; 'A super collection of information books from Usborne, which really engage the reader by providing interesting information, colourful graphics and plenty of flaps with yet more information' - Parents in Touch; 'This is a really important topic and it is essential that our children understand the issues involved and how they can play their part. This book takes a comprehensive look at what happens to the horrifying amount of rubbish which is produced, but does so in an approachable and interesting way. From what happens when we throw rubbish away and how it is collected right through to how it is recycled, the amount of detail in the book is amazing...This book will be a great help for topic work. Don't miss the rubbish facts at the end! - Parents in Touch; 'With brightly coloured, engaging illustrations and characters by Peter Allen, this is a very busy book, packed full of information on recycling and resource recovery that will entertain older children, while hopefully teaching them about where their rubbish goes...and what they can actively do to help the environment, all presented in a positive, non-preachy manner' - Resource
