Reviews

A series which could form the basis of interesting and informed discussions in English, Geography or Personal Education classes... the information value of this book is excellent. School Librarian Asks readers to look behind the shiny front of retail consumerism. Attention is drawn to the fact that we, as individuals, have a role to play. The issues are presented clearly, with illustrations which are likely to draw teenagers into the argument. Carousel
