Praise for Sweet! The Delicious Story of Candy:
“This history of things sweet and sugary is a yummy feast. The prose is chatty and inviting. There are great explanations of such matters as the history of honey production and the chemistry of sugar. Sweet! is one tasty treat.” — School Library Journal
“… reading [this] book is a little like dipping into a grab bag from the candy store: the experience is fun, varied, and relatively cheap, considering the pleasure it gives.” — Quill & Quire starred review
Praise for Trash Action: A Fresh Look at Garbage:
“One of the very best things about this very good book is that it doesn’t preach; it will encourage and empower readers of all ages.…” — The Globe and Mail
“If you have a young eco-warrior living in your house — or you want to help create one — this is the book.” — Today’s Parent, Toronto
