Description

Justine McKeen talks too much, bosses people around too much, and as everyone soon finds out, she tells the truth, but just not all at once. Justine's trying to save the planet, one person and one cause at a time. Best of all, when she decides to get something done, it involves a whole lot of laughter and fun for everyone.

Editorial Reviews

"The characters are engaging and their dialogue is brief, humorous and 'kid-friendly.' Large black and white illustrations, comically drawn, enhance the action. This environmental topic is closely connected to the elementary curriculum and the text should prove useful to promote both discussion and ideas."

— Resource Links

"Inventive and intrepid Justine McKeen...finds amusing ways to make classmates and community members more environmentally conscious...Justine is feisty enough to add some flavor to the mix...Brisk, very brief chapters are accompanied by lively full-page black-and-white illustrations...[and] endnotes provide suggestions for environmental projects included in the story...Funnier and fresher than most."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Justine and her friends have so much enthusiasm for reusing and recycling...that readers of this book might find themselves looking for ways to recycle in their own lives. Illustrations by Dave Whamond convey the emotion and detail of the scene to help young readers to connect with what they are reading...Recommended."
