    Introduce children to the importance of recycling with this illustrated story book about plastic in the oceans.

    All Finn wants is to catch a nice, tasty fish for his dinner, but no matter how hard he tries all he seems to catch at the end of his fishing line is the rubbish that is polluting the sea . At the end of the day, Finn and his dog Skip go home with a boat full of rubbish, but their tummies are empty tummies. However, they soon find a way to put the rubbish they have found to good use...

    This book is the ideal introduction for children to the environmental concerns facing our oceans, featuring colourful illustrations and an engaging, light-hearted storyline.
    Grown-ups and children will enjoy reading together and following the story of Finn and Skip with its ups and downs, and pointing out all the different pieces of rubbish that Finn catches in the ocean in the detailed illustrations.
