Obe is a loner who cares more about the environment than almost anything else until he "discovers" a very unusual animal that eats "plastic". This is a book about environmental awareness, bullying and friendship, family relation ships and self acceptance. Pretty ambitious but very engaging. The daily school "facts" about environmental dangers will be of interest to young scientists. Edie Ching (10-14)
