"Everything can be used again!" That's Dawson's motto. He collects junk that people throw away and turns it into something stupendous. But when Dawson uses his skills to create a machine to do his chores for him, he discovers he might have invented something a little too awesome. Can he stop the rampaging robot before it destroys the entire town? In Gall's new picture book about a boy superhero who turns trash into treasure (and saves the world!), he inspires kids to reuse, repurpose, and recycle.
Today, Chris Gall also hosts an Earth Day Contest! Participants can bring in a homemade robot made of recycled and repurposed materials found around the house. Chris will judge the winner.
