en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 04 Jan 2011

Orinoco is certainly the tubbiest of the Wombles and is perhaps the Womble who needs the most encouragement to go out on the daily sortie to clear up and recycle all the rubbish that humans leave behind . . . Meanwhile, Tobermory, DIY-er extraordinaire, is getting to grips with the one of the humans' more ingenious inventions: the vacuum cleaner!

Caracteristici

Much beloved by adults, children of today will also respond to the prescient and timely message of recycling that the Wombles live by, whose motto is ‘making good use of bad rubbish'

Notă biografică

Elisabeth Beresford first came up with the idea for the Womble characters when walking on Wimbledon Common with her two children. She started sketching out the characters that day: Great Uncle Bulgaria was based on her father-in-law, Tobermory on her brother (an inventor), Orinoco on her son, and Madame Cholet on her mother. She hoped that the Wombles stories would encourage children to fight pollution and to think up ways of ‘making good use of bad rubbish'. In fact, the Wombles so charmed the nation that they were chosen as the mascots for the Tidy Britain campaign. Since then they have had their own television series, first broadcast on Jackanory.

Elisabeth Beresford was awarded an MBE for her services to children's literature in 1998.


Recenzii

‘The six original titles by Elizabeth Beresford are back in print, with an environmental message that has never been more relevant. Perfect for 8-to 10-year-olds'
‘There's something wonderfully old-fashioned and charming about the "short, fat, furry" creatures. They are simple without being simplistic, innocent without being naïve, civic minded for its own sake'
‘Today's children will be as charmed as their parents by Great Uncle Bulgaria, Orinoco, Bungo and Tobermory and their quest to recycle rubbish and put it to good use'
