Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What self-respecting glass bottle would want to be trapped in a trash dump for hundreds of thousands of years, when it could be transformed over and over again into new and exciting containers? Luckily, the Smash! Smash! Truck is on hand to speed up the recycling process, making things go round faster. Professor Potts takes us all the way back to the Big Bang to look at how the earth naturally recycles its resources and ends with a series of glorious smashes as a modern recycling truck is loaded and unloaded.

As he did in Uneversaurus, Professor Potts makes science engaging and informative with lighthearted, accessible text and clever, fun illustrations.

Synopsis:

Describes how the Earth was formed and how recycling is part of the natural order of things, then discusses how glass is recycled and the importance of recycling.

About the Author

Aidan Potts, alter ego of the dashing Professor Potts, has worked as an illustrator for all the national daily newspapers in England and currently produces a weekly comic strip about idioms for the Times Educational Supplement. He lives in London.
