“This is the tale of Tidy Mulgrew, a boy as small as a mouse. He lived in the park with two snails and a flea, in a plant pot, made into a house.”

COMING SOON!

Tidy Mulgrew is so tiny you probably don’t even know he’s there, but he’s the reason the streets are kept clean and the rubbish is tidied away. Along with his friends, the snails Tom and Dick, and Harry the flea, Tidy collects all the things people throw away and find uses for them. One day, the townspeople want to catch whoever it is that they see is keeping their streets clean, but Tidy has a message for them that they aren’t expecting!

Tidy Mulgrew is a wonderful tale of upcycling, recycling items and reducing waste. The rhyming sentences are great fun, and would be perfect for intrepid little recyclers over the age of five. If you want to encourage sustainability in an easy-to-understand and fun way, then grab a copy of the delightful Tidy Mulgrew.
