    I used this lovely little book when researching about recycling. It is both fun and factual.
    When I was a child recycling was a regular event. We took glass milk bottles back to the corner shop for pennies and begged our Mammy to give us any old things for the ‘rag and bone’ man, in exchange for a balloon or a spinning top.
    It was whilst driving my son to college that I got the idea for our book : “Ronnie Raven Recycles”. We saw a large seagull fly by with a packet of cheese and onion crisps in his beak! Such fun. I often go into local schools to promote our books and Ronnie is a great favourite. The children are always filled with wonderful ideas for recycling – in this wickedly wasteful world we all need to learn about the joys of recycling.
    All the best,
    Kay Al-Ghani
