In a corner of England lies an old town.

A curious place – it’s called Cotteridge Down.

Cotteridge Down is not at all clean.

But the smelliest, filthiest place ever seen.

Festering rubbish is left on the ground.

Cruddy old carpets and boots lay around.

The smell is revolting! Too much too bear.

Even the rats packed and left in despair.

Fed-up and cross with the state of the place.

An empty street bin says, “What a disgrace!

Right, that’s it, enough is enough.

Now it is time for the bins to get tough!”


Join the Bins of Cotteridge Down as they teach the litter bugs a lesson and carry out the greatest cleaning expedition ever known!

Can the bins save Cotteridge Down before it is too late?

And will they get a Royal seal of approval?

The Bins of Cottridge Down is the third rhyming picture book by Peta Lemon and Maria Dasic Todoric. With hilarious illustrations and an important message about respecting the environment, the Bins of Cotteridge Down will have to be read again and again!

Review
Oh my God. It feels like forever since the last time I wrote a review! It's just been too hectic because I was always either too lazy or too busy. But now I decided to just write anything that comes into my mind no matter how shitty it is. So, here goes another review of a rhyming picture book by Peta Lemon! In case you didn't know, I and my friend, Firly, reviewed one of her books before here.

Here are some points that I concluded while reading this 34-pages book:

It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list.

On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily would normally never try. But what if they could bring her best friend back?

Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.

Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?

Kiss a stranger? Um...

Emily now has this unexpected summer, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected), to check things off Sloane's list. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go skinny-dipping? Wait...what?

Review

Hello, people! I’m back with another review. However, this time, I won’t be reviewing a book that I read, but rather a book that I listened to. Yup, that’s right. I listened to the audiobook! It’s my third ever audiobook and I was IMMENSELY, OVERWHELMINGLY, SHOCKINGLY satisfied and happy with it.

I am so glad that I gave this book a chance because I haven’t exactly had pleasant experiences with Morgan Matson’s previous books. I mostly thought her books were boring to the point where I fell asleep many times. Granted, I fell asleep quite a few times listening to this audiobook, but it was because I was too tired and not because this book was too boring or bland.
