A new addition this modern classic series! Someone is dumping rubbish into the sea. Mr Grinling's nephew George thinks it could be trash pirates...or could the culprit be someone closer to home?
We love that this is a story of regular people standing-up for the environment, and that it shows how they cleverly communicated and motivated people to change their behaviour. [Spoiler alert: the culprits were regular people leaving trash on the beach. George and Mr Grinling demonstrate how this is harming sea creatures and organise a clean-up, bins, signs, and a new culture on the beach.]
A charming new story in this beloved series, with an important conservation message.

- Improvements we're working on in this product: Printing in Europe?saves between 60% and 90% of a book's transport carbon - 60% if you print in Eastern Europe, 90% if you print in Ireland or UK. So, we wish this book were printed in Europe?
