The Tindims Series

by ,
  • (43 reviews)

    You have probably never seen a Tindim. They are so tiny, it’s easy to miss them but they are there all the same: miniature recyclers, turning today’s rubbish into tomorrow’s treasure. The Tindims built their home and Rubbish Island entirely from things we have thrown away, just like Borrowers-on-Sea.

    Created by mother-and-daughter duo, prizewinning Sally Gardner and Lydia Corry, the exciting adventures of Captain Spoons, Mug, Jug, Brew Skittle and their friends inspire conservation and inventive ways to recycle. 

    The short, funny stories have an important environmental message as well as lots of inspiration for junk modelling at home. Thanks to the books’ sweet illustrations and the dyslexia-friendly font, these chapter books are brilliant for emerging and reluctant readers aged 5+.
     
     The Tindims books are an ideal starting point for children ready for longer stories.
