"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 . . .

The Wombles live in a beautifully snug, well-ordered and cosy burrow underneath Wimbledon Common - the perfect base from which to sort and recycle all the rubbish that unthinking humans constantly drop. First published over 40 years ago, the Wombles books are back to entertain a whole new generation with their charming characters and environmental themes."

“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 have an environmental message that has never been more relevant. Perfect for 8-to 10-year-olds." ~Telegraph magazine Please click here to ask a question
