"I really loved this story, it’s been written beautifully by Evelyn Bookless, cleverly plotted to show the damage that our overuse and dumping of rubbish is causing."
"Danny Deeptown’s illustrations are bright and colourful with pops of personality in the creatures and the humans, and lots of brilliant little details, giving the pictures interest and entertainment value."
"Captain Green and the Plastic Scene is a great way to teach young children about the dangers of plastic waste and how they can become true 'super humans' who take care of the world. This story is fun way to raise awareness of the impact of our actions. If we teach children the right way from the beginning, the world will be a better place."
