About the book:

This is the first children's book from CBBC presenter Maddie Moate: a collection of extraordinary stories about STUFF. Do you ever wonder where your stuff comes from, and what happens to it when you're finished with it? Did you know that you can make paper out of elephant poo? And plastic packaging out of seaweed? And did you know that if you throw away an old T-shirt, it can take 200 years to break down? Written and researched by Maddie Moate, the star of CBBC's Do You Know? and illustrated by Paul Boston, this book is full of mind-bursting facts and extraordinary stories of the ingenious ways people around the world, and across history, have made, used, and re-used the stuff around them.
