The Tale of a Toothbrush: A Story of Plastic in Our Oceans
A brilliantly topical and delightfully funny picture book from internationally bestselling author M.G. Leonard, which shows children what happens to their plastic toothbrushes after they’re thrown away. Children use their toothbrush each morning and evening, and get new ones every few months.

With a fun cast of plastic characters, from pirate-ship bottles to dancing shampoos, and even an inquisitive albatross, The Tale of a Toothbrush is a positive and heart-warming story to help children explore the impact their choices have on our planet.
