Meet Sippy, the world's last plastic straw Sippy, a plastic straw who was used once and then discarded, worries what will happen to him when he realizes he can't be recycled. As he flies, floats, and flutters around the planet, he meets animals who are struggling with the plastic problem. He chats with a raccoon with a six-pack ring around his neck, a cardinal whose nest is made entirely of junk, turtles who confuse grocery bags with food, a hermit crab forced to live in a plastic cap, and a startled duck who runs around with a chip bag on her head. Finally, Sippy is swallowed by a hungry whale who is dining on ocean trash! Just when all hope seems lost, he skyrockets to freedom and calls out "Together we can fix this! Let's clean our world--let's try!" Parents and teachers of children 4 to 8 years old can use Sippy's colorful adventure--based on real examples of animals in our environment--to raise awareness about the impacts of plastics on nature and to teach children about alternatives to single-use plastics.

Charlie knows his partner can handle herself, but when she uncovers a past connection that paints a target on her back, the threat of losing her hits Charlie hard. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do to keep Wyrick safe, but with the clock ticking on a victim they’ve yet to find, it’s only a matter of time before the cold-blooded killer leads them to a deadly end.

As Wundannas, Rungans, and Lords, we share a common treasure as the children of Burunga. The country long referred to as the Hills of Freedom has become a melting pot of different ethnic groups. It is a common treasure, a Bungandy, as our ancestors used to say. From this day forward, the three ethnic groups will live as a same people. Yet only the Rungans and Wundannas believed in that unity. As the Lords lust for power grew, they created a conflict that would soak the rich brown soil red. For centuries, betrayal, bloodshed, mass killings, and genocide would defeat the heroism of the Djandhis until Haydar shakes off the mantle of oppression and galvanizes his people to fight violence with violence. Lucien Nzeyimana takes the reader into the wicked web behind ethnic cleansing, shining a light, as he does so, on dark atrocities the likes of which besieged Bungandy.
