Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
There are a lot of reasons that Andy believes Jake is the best neighbor in the whole world. He has a dog. He always has a dollar in his pocket. Best of all, Jake is a junk collector. Andy would love to be a junk collector, but he does not know what to collect. It seems that Jake already collects everything, including fishing poles, alarms clocks, soda bottle labels, and empty toilet paper rolls. (Jake is sure there will be a market for them one day.) Jake says Andy needs an education, specifically a degree from the Junk Collector School. For the unbelievably low price of only five empty toilet paper rolls, Jake will teach Andy all about collecting. First, Andy has to learn the rules: a collection shall be made up of the same kind of stuff; always check garbage cans; jump down inside and search thoroughly; collect only things that are unusual, beautiful and valuable; and don�t give up! You will never guess what Andy chooses to collect. Even Jake is baffled. It might look like a pile of garbage, but it isn�t! It�s a very clever collection. Delightfully illustrated with subtly colored drawings, this unusually-themed book will appeal to curious readers. Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen
