"A Load of Rubbish" - Find out about all the rubbish we create, and what we do with it - all in a book without words. Then 'read' a story about something that ends up as rubbish when it shouldn't. This book is part of "Thunderbolts" a series of 24 levelled reading books, covering popular non-fiction topics. The 24 low level, full-colour titles offer progression over four levels and have particular appeal to older readers. Each book features a non-fiction section together with a fully illustrated fiction story on the same topic. "A Load of Rubbish"! is part of "Set One", the lowest level; these books have no words in them.
Malcolm Tilsley is a street cleaner. He is well educated and smart and clean. And being a street cleaner is all he ever wanted to be. Street cleaning is a family tradition, it's in his blood, and he wants to be the best there has been. Willy Eckerslike, Managing Director of Suburbiaville Newtown council has different ideas and wants to replace Malcolm with a fantastic vehicle called the "All-in-One-Der." Manned by Rubbish Robots, the mobile wheelie-bins equipped with mechanical arms and different attachments are faster, more efficient and cheaper than humans. It makes Malcolm redundant. What A Load of Rubbish is a brilliant mix of social theory, human spirit and classical heroism that culminates in a battle between man and machine.
