read an excerpt...
On Monday, at school, Ms. Cho addresses the students: “Was anybody able to reduce plastic use in their home on the weekend? Can anyone share their story?” Everyone in the classroom shoots up their hands excitedly!
Ms. Cho says, “Oh this is great! Let’s hear some stories. Denise, why don’t you share your experience?”
Denise says, “My parents have stopped buying bottled water, we are going to only use compostable dog waste bags and start a compost at home!”

more personal "stuff" about Stacey Szynkaruk...
Does this book have a special meaning to you? i.e. where you found the idea, its symbolism, its meaning, who you dedicated it to, what made you want to write it?
Yes, my book has special meaning to me because I wrote it for my son – Theo. The world’s overuse of plastic is a huge issue that requires our immediate attention. I wanted to shed light on that issue while providing some easy options we can implement into our daily lives to reduce our plastic use.
Where do you get your storylines from?
It is an active issue that I thought children should be made aware of it in a way that could help influence change.
Was this book easier or more difficult to write than others? Why?
This is the first book that I have written and I did not find it difficult to write.
Do you only write one genre?
As of right now, yes but that may change in the future.
Give us a picture of where you write, where you compose these words…is it Starbucks, a den, a garden…we want to know your inner sanctum?
It mostly occurred on my couch. I do not have a specific place yet.
And finally, of course…was there any specific event or circumstance that made you want to be a writer?
Yes, it was the realization that our use of plastic has major environmental implications and we need to take action now in order to prevent further damage to our world.
