Stef Gemmill & Katharine Hall
Sam’s dreams seem to have come true when he becomes a toy tester for the Tiny Hands Toy Factory, and his house is filled with plastic toys in all sorts of shapes and colours. But one by one and plonk by plonk, his shiny new toys start to break. Soon enough, Sam has a mountain of broken toys that just won’t stop growing!
This whimsically illustrated story highlights the huge amounts of plastic waste generated by ‘consumer culture’, and empowers children to take sustainability into their own hands.
Stef Gemmill is a children’s author, and won an International Rubery Book Award for her picture book A Home For Luna in 2020.
This is a funny book with a serious but subtle message about ‘consumer culture’ and the value of looking after our belongings. This is a message we all need to hear in a world where we generate 6.3 billions tonnes of plastic each year”
“a timely reminder about promoting sustainability, moderating our consumerism and caring for both our belongings and our earth”
