K-Gr 2-- Something's wrong in the town of Beaston. Dimwitted Mayor Hippo takes a while to discover the problem, but readers will soon catch on: ``Beaston has too much trash.'' Investigating possible solutions to the excess garbage, the mayor and his animal retinue visit the town dump, incinerator, and landfill, briefly discussing the pros and cons of each: ``The incinerator burns trash and makes energy!'' but ``It makes air pollution too!'' Declaring a ``Trash Bash,'' the animals launch a comprehensive clean-up and recycling campaign. Their ideas for cutting down on trash are easy enough to follow, if occasionally simplistic (``I only buy returnable bottles''). Attractively illustrated in ink and watercolor, the book has a comic-strip format and an engaging cast of characters. A list of ``ideas for cutting down on trash'' is appended. Timely, appealing, and funny. --Ruth Smith, Chicago Public Library
