Welcome to Scrap City, home of an inventive tribe of creatures called ScrapKins. Using materials that people throw away (empty soda bottles, cans, milk cartons, and cereal boxes) these creatures make new things that are useful and fun - they are the ultimate recyclers. With character profiles of the ScrapKins and instructions to make all kinds of puppets, instruments, and toys out of everyday items, this activity book (also featuring mazes, word scrambles, and comics) fosters creativity and encourages eco-friendliness.

MEDIA REVIEWS

What a great centerpiece for Free Arts NYC's Kidfest event! Even with many other projects, the Scrap Kins house was a favorite for hundreds of kids. It is amazing what Brian and Scrapkins were able to do on such short notice and with recycled materials. The simplest things are always the most enjoyable. "Liz Hopfan, Executive Director, Free Arts NYC"

The ScrapKins foster a new generation of conservationists who are committed to such principles as recycling and making "greener" choices about what they decide to purchase. Your professionalism in interacting with our visitors was exceptional. Your recycled bird feeders served to enhance our visitor's experience at the zoo, and helped make our event an outstanding success. "Judy Frimer, Director, Marketing, Wildlife Conservation Society""


"One man's trash is another man's . . . monster truck. Yanish's enthusiasm and the book's eye-catching format offer abundant crafty inspiration." "Publishers Weekly "

"""Comics and puzzles pertaining to each monster are scattered throughout the book, though the main focus is crafting. The projects are of varying levels of complexity and can be created using recyclables and materials found at home, and the fictional narrative is an interesting way to keep children invested in the concept of recycling." "Booklist"
