One Hot Mess: A Child's Environmental Fable by J.E. Rogers

FITZROY, a young kangaroo, loves living in the outback of Australia with his kangaroo family. This season the outback is greener than usual, and the beautiful plants growing against the red earth delight him. Then he notices the nasty pile of trash that sits alongside the railroad tracks. Every day it grows bigger and bigger, and gets smellier and smellier. Some of the little joeys are even getting sick!

Fitzroy is determined to find a way to clean up the hot mess and ensure that it never collects in the outback again. But it’s a big job, too big to do by himself. It will take a lot of paws and claws to get the job done!

Fitzroy and the mob find that sometimes the help you need is right there beside you. You just have to have the courage to step forward and ask for it.

This delightful story not only entertains it educates. It teaches children that it's important to keep their homes and our planet clean. The fully illustrated tale is enhanced with a glossary containing entries relating to the flora and fauna mentioned withing the story. The entries contain links to web pages where the reader can go to learn more about the outback and its unusual residents. This is a wonderful read-to-me-book or a first chapter book for young readers.

About the Author

Infused with a reverence for life, J.E. Rogers loves animals and has always been especially intrigued by the unusual creatures that can be found only in Australia. An avid student of every facet of the country, Rogers' love of all things Australian has flowed into her books. She hopes to spark an interest in young readers to the flora and fauna of Australia while engaging them in a wildly imaginative tale of adventure.

She spends much of her time blogging and speaking to youngsters, at libraries, schools, and museums, about endangered and threatened animals around the globe. She wants children to understand that we are connected with all life on this planet, and that animals are our fellow creatures and we share this world with them. It is our responsibility to protect them.

J.E. Rogers is a graduate of Western Connecticut State University. She lives in Connecticut with her family, which includes two dogs, and two cats.
