The Tale of a Toothbrush: A Story of Plastic in Our Oceans

Author: M G Leonard
Illustrator: Daniel Rieley
Publisher: Walker

A brilliantly topical and delightfully funny picture book from internationally bestselling author M.G. Leonard, that shows children what happens to their used plastic toothbrushes.

Children use their toothbrush each morning and evening, and get new ones every few months. That's billions of toothbrushes! What happens to them all when they're no longer needed? And if toothbrushes take thousands of years to break down, what does that mean for our planet? With a fun cast of plastic characters, from pirate-ship bottles to dancing shampoos, and even an inquisitive albatross, The Tale of a Toothbrush is a positive and heart-warming story to help children explore the impact their choices have on our planet.
