The Lovereading4Kids comment

Age 3+. When this lovely book came in we were bowled over by it, both because of its 'Green' theme but also because of the terrific interaction of illustration and straightforward text. The character of Michael Recycle is an-all action hero and young kids, particularly boys, of course love to associate themselves with heroes; Perfect for kids just starting to read alone or alongside their parents. A great way to inform children from an early age of the importance of recycling. Well done Meadowside.

Michael Recycle by Ellie Bethel

A small town somewhere near you is in desperate need of salvation...from drowning in rubbish at the hands of its lazy and wasteful inhabitants! Join Michael Recycle, the green-caped crusader, as he rescues the town and proves to the lazy layabouts that recycling can actually be quite good fun!

About the Author

Ellie Bethel

Ellie, like Peter Pan, never really wanted to grow up. Unfortunately these things happen and in a desperate attempt to slow the process of time she immerses herself regularly in children's books, despite not being a child anymore. She practically eats books. In this way Ellie's brain has become so jam-packed with stories that sometimes they spill over.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
