Reviews

'[R]eaders are launched into a close examination of plastic - how it came to be, how it's made and used, and how it has changed the world, for better and for worse. The book objectively presents the petroleum-based substance's contributions to the field of medicine and to the accessibility of manufactured goods alongside its increasingly harsh toll on the environment ... Lee's boldly coloured digital illustrations attractively and neatly chart out complex phenomena such as microplastics consumption.' STARRED REVIEW * Publishers Weekly *

'Author Kim and illustrator Lee offer scenes to help kids digest the complex story of plastics ... [R]efreshingly, plastics recycling is not presented as a catchall solution for single-use plastics. Readers are encouraged to reduce single-use plastic consumption, to learn about innovative solutions from scientists and activists, and to acknowledge that eliminating plastics use is unlikely. Illustrations of people throughout show varied skin tones consistent with the bold style used by the illustrator.'
