Tell us a little about your first book, The Girl Who Recycled One Million Cans, and how this book continues the story.
In our first book, we meet Ellie, a determined girl with a mission to save the planet by recycling cans. She discovers that recycling aluminum cans can earn her money, and she sets her sights on recycling one million cans to fulfill her dream of buying a unicorn. With the support of her friends and schoolmates, they embark on this exciting journey. Along the way, they befriend Mr. Ferrous Magglio, a talking magnet who shares valuable recycling information and quickly becomes a favorite among the kids.
In our second book, "A Recycling Adventure to the Scrapyard," Ellie and her friends make a triumphant return. This time, they're addressing the issue of people discarding metal items in the trash. Their quest involves collecting wires, Christmas lights, horseshoes, and even unicorn shoes from the entire town. These items are then taken to the local scrapyard for recycling, with the hope of earning some money. When their truck breaks down, they seize the opportunity to recycle it as well. Their resourcefulness showcases that challenges can be transformed into positive actions for the environment.
As part of our series, we have planned four books that illustrate the complete cycle of metal recycling. In the third book, we will explore the melting process, and in the fourth book, we will delve into the manufacturing process, demonstrating how old, recycled metal is used to create new items.
