The tiny Tindims are like the Borrowers-on-Sea, who turn our everyday rubbish into treasure. Mother-and-daughter duo, prizewinning Sally Gardner and Lydia Corry, create a fun new world of characters and adventures in their empowering new series for 5-8 year olds inspiring conservation and inventive ways to recycle.

In their third adventure Ethel B Dina, who looks after the fish hospital and loves to sing, needs ten green, glass bottles to complete her musical Bottleramma. But she is surrounded by too many plastic bottles which do not make music. Join the Tindims in their glass bottle hunt and meet the Tindims explorer, Tiddledim.

Printed in dyslexia-friendly font with pictures on every page and perfect for the reluctant reader, the Tindims show keen young ecologists how to help protect our planet for the future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Combining eccentric characters, short chapters and lively illustrations, this delightful new series is ideal for confident, independent readers. Full of joy and laughter, this quirky adventure also carries an important environmental message about waste, pollution and recycling' * BookTrust Great Books Guide 2021 *
This collection of books have become well known for their accessible language. Printed in a dyslexia-friendly font, the story features short, fast-paced chapters but does not detract from what is a fun and heart-warming story... Whether this book is read by the individual or as a group/class reader, it will make a fantastic addition to a KS1 class library. There is so much scope for discussion not just about the environment and recycling but about sea creatures, voyages, climate, weather and teamwork. In its own unique way the Island is always moving and for this story, finds itself in warmer waters. Ethel B Dina's description of her surroundings as, 'The Land of the Midnight Sun,' allows children to explore what it might be like to live somewhere where it is always dark or always sunny. The poems and songs (and of course a great rendition of ten green bottles) lend themselves beautifully to choral reading and subsequently, children can produce songs of their own about their surroundings and things that they hold dear' * Just Imagine *
PRAISE FOR SALLY GARDNER & LYDIA CORRY:
'Gardner remains the patron saint of the reluctant reader' Daily Telegraph.
'An idiosyncratic genius' The Times.
'Sally Gardner's tale unfolds with all the beautiful illogicality of a dream' Financial Times.
'Slightly older fairytale fans will relish Lydia Corry's delicious pictures' * Guardian, on Eight Princesses and a Magic Mirror *
