Wow! A non-preachy recycling book and a story that encourages inventiveness! I'm impressed! Awesome!

Awesome Dawson is the ultimate maker! He definitely represents the Eureka! Summer Reading Club theme. His Motto: "EVERYTHING CAN BE USED AGAIN" Fantastic retro-style illustrations in a partial comic book and picture book story that will appeal to kids 5 and up, and adults will enjoy this story too! Have a look at all his amazing creations - from junk he finds! What will he build next?
