Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Young Justine is a devoted environmentalist, and she is determined to get everybody to follow her lead, in and out of school. Problems occur, however, when she embarrasses the school bully, Jimmy Blatzo, for not recycling and when she discovers Mr. Tait, a shop owner who claims to be a proud recycler, isn’t recycling at all. So Justine creates a green project that gets everyone on board, including Mr. Tait and Jimmy, and she brings positive attention to going green. Justine is a well-meaning, passionate character—if occasionally bossy and manipulative—who practices what she preaches, whether encouraging eating crickets as a protein alternative, telling classmates how cow methane gas (“F-A-R-Ts”) impacts global warming, or making her own paper. This series opener’s short chapters, coupled with interspersed, somewhat generic, cartoon illustrations, make for an accessible story. An appended “Notes for Students and Teachers” lacks specifics and advocates Internet searching for more information instead. Although lengthier, Megan McDonald’s Judy Moody Saves the World! (2002) and David A. Adler’s Cam Jansen and the Green School Mystery (2008) offer further green reading. Grades 2-4. --Shelle Rosenfeld


"Inventive and intrepid Justine McKeen...finds amusing ways to make classmates and community members more environmentally conscious...Justine is feisty enough to add some flavor to the mix...Brisk, very brief chapters are accompanied by lively full-page black-and-white illustrations...[and] endnotes provide suggestions for environmental projects included in the story...Funnier and fresher than most." (Kirkus Reviews 2011-09-21)

"Justine and her friends have so much enthusiasm for reusing and recycling...that readers of this book might find themselves looking for ways to recycle in their own lives. Illustrations by Dave Whamond convey the emotion and detail of the scene to help young readers to connect with what they are reading...Recommended." (CM Magazine 2011-12-09)

"The characters are engaging and their dialogue is brief, humorous and 'kid-friendly.' Large black and white illustrations, comically drawn, enhance the action. This environmental topic is closely connected to the elementary curriculum and the text should prove useful to promote both discussion and ideas." (Resource Links 2011-12-01)
