Question: Pierre the French Bulldog is digging in the yard. He digs up a bone, his owner’s newspaper, a ripped stuffed animal, and a chewed-up plastic bottle to make room for other things he wants to bury.

Which two items does Pierre realise he should have put into the recycling bin beside the house?

Answer: Pierre should have put his owner’s newspaper and the chewed-up plastic bottle into the recycling bin. We’re pleased that everyone answered correctly!

About the book:

Like most dogs, Pierre, a French bulldog, loves the excitement of digging things up. He hoards his treasures in a hole in the backyard and then makes space for more. One day Pierre tosses some old stuff into the trash can, but he forgets to recycle. Now, instead of being transformed into new things, that plastic bottle and newspaper will sit in a landfill forever! Well, not if Pierre has anything to do with it. He chases the garbage truck through town, but will he catch it in time, or will those treasures be trash forever?

From author Kate Louise comes Pierre the French Bulldog Recycles—a quirky and fun lesson about the importance of recycling. Bethany Straker’s expressive illustrations make this adorable pup come to life on every page and are sure to get kids thinking about the importance of saving the environment one small piece of trash at a time.
