9780140307948: The Wombles at Work

There has been a huge festival and no end of rubbish has been left behind - everything from sunglasses to shoes, drinks cans and bottles. Who would have thought humans could leave so much behind, not bothering to recycle? The Wombles have their work cut out for them . . .

Review:

'A lively, entertaining and humorous book, stuffed with ingenious ideas and endearing characters' ( The Times)

'There's something wonderfully old-fashioned and charming about the "short, fat, furry" creatures. They are simple without being simplistic, innocent without being naïve, civic minded for its own sake' ( Irish Examiner)

'Today's children will be as charmed as their parents by Great Uncle Bulgaria, Orinoco, Bungo and Tobermory and their quest to recycle rubbish and put it to good use' ( www.express.co.uk)

'The six original titles by Elizabeth Beresford are back in print, with an environmental message that has never been more relevant. Perfect for 8-to 10-year-olds' ( Telegraph magazine)

Book Description:

Classic and much loved characters brought back into print with a fresh new cover look and inside illustrations to celebrate over 40 years of the Wombles
