This book is about the insect pestiside DDT and what it did to the ecology of Borneo. It is in rhyme. First they sprayed DDT on the houses to get rid of the mosquitos affecting Malaria. Then the caterpillars and the cockroaches came out. They weren't quite affected but they were covered with the spray. Then the geckoes ate them. But the DDT was poison to them. The cats got them. Soon the cats died out and rats came from the forest. The farmers needed to get rid of them so they parachuted cats on Borneo. Read this rhyming book. It teaches about the ecology too.

I think this is a fabulous book for young people because it teaches them how simplistic solutions can sometimes backfire and cause more problems than they solved. Not only is this book fun and enjoyable but the lesson children will learn from this book can be applied to all sorts of problems and issues in the world today.
