Here is another book that Lil Bug pulled off the shelf of the library and became an unlikely favorite. Islip has too much garbage and doesn’t know what to do with it. Gino Strofolino hires Cap’m Duffy and his tugboat the Break of Dawn to carry a garbage in a barge down the coast to North Carolina. Problem is nobody in North Carolina wants the trash either. Cap’m Duffy and the garbage barge travel to New Orleans, Mexico, Belize,Texas and Florida but are turned away at every port finally the trash ends up back in New York. This book is slightly more mature than our usual reads and features images of guns which we try to gloss over. However, Lil Bug asks for this one over and over.
Lil Bug says: Here Comes the Garbage Barge! It picks up the garbage. There is more and more and more garbage.
