Another fresh and innovative investigation from Professor Potts – this time he’s investigating the sound and science of recycling. Non-fiction with a twist!
What self-respecting glass bottle would want to be trapped in a rubbish dump for hundreds of thousands of years, when it could be transformed over and over again into new and exciting containers? Luckily, the Smash Smash Truck is on hand to speed up the recycling process, making things go round faster.
Professor Potts takes us all the way back to the Big Bang to look at how the earth naturally recycles its resources and ends with a series of glorious smashes as a modern recycling truck is loaded and unloaded. This book is a celebration of recycling, filled with humour, science and Aidan Potts' distinctive, exciting illustrations.Author Profile
Professor Potts is a dashing investigator who loves nothing more than jet-setting around the world exploring scientific mysteries. He lives in a secret location with his glamorous wife. His butler has a PhD in nuclear science and his dog will only eat bones from the Jurassic period.
(Professor Potts is the brainchild of Aidan Potts, cartoonist and illustrator, who also happens to live in a secret location with a glamourous wife - though the similarities end there. Aidan has worked as an illustrator for all the national daily newspapers and is currently working on the next Professor Potts book.)Reviews
