A pack rat named Pinch hoards everything, then discovers how much better it is to recycle.
"Veteran author Kroll's well-paced text folds the recycling and reuse concepts into an enjoyable story that's greatly expanded in Cox's mixed media, digital illustrations...the busy, bright compositions are filled with details that will invite kids back for repeated viewings of Pinch's overflowing house and his friendly, eco-minded neighbors." -- Booklist
Thoughts of the importance of recycling led naturally to the idea for a story about a pack rat and how he reforms.
