Praise

★ “This adventurous tale is packed with action, examples of creative thinking, and ingenuity. Use this as an introduction to STEM thinking, a science fair project, a lesson on ecology, or simply read it for the enjoyment the story provides. This book will appeal to the adventure seeker, animal lover, explorer, and just about everyone else. A must-read for readers ready to strap in for a great ride!”
School Library Connection, starred review

“In this series opener, a mouse and a shrew find themselves unlikely allies as they unite to save Garbage Island. The clever pairing of opposites adds humor, making the gradual emergence of friendship . . . all the sweeter. Dramatic black-and-white illustrations highlight key action. Exciting, fast-paced adventure and unexpected friendship in a ‘trashy’ venue.”
Kirkus Reviews

“(With) fast-paced action and danger . . . this entertaining animal adventure stands out . . . because of its strong characters and an underlying message of environmental awareness.”
School Library Journal

“Pint-sized characters face out-sized challenges with heart and wit in this heroic adventure. The winner: readers!”
—Sara Pennypacker, New York Times–bestselling author of the Clementine series

Garbage Island is a delight! Fred Koehler has created an intricately imagined world of inventive and courageous small animals, then set his two main characters spinning across it in a nonstop adventure that will have readers madly flipping pages to find out what happens next!”
—Bruce Coville, award-winning author of Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher

“What an incredible world Fred Koehler weaves out of bits and pieces of floating trash and very human animals. You’ll have an action-packed time on Garbage Island!”
—Chris Grabenstein, #1 New York Times–bestselling author
