ALA Booklist
A motley crew of junkyard-dwelling creatures and inanimate objects called the Garbage Gang discover a dead fish belly-up in a polluted lake, and it becomes an opportunity to learn about states of matter. A live fish helpfully explains what matter is, the different forms it can take, and the ways matter can change from one state to another, all while the Garbage Gang offer additional helpful facts, clarifying questions, and the occasional joke. There isn't a lot of information here, but the large, full-color comic-book-style illustrations of weirdo characters talking sandwich and a muscly armed refrigerator, for instance ould have a lot of appeal for reluctant readers. Critical thinking questions, a glossary, and a list of additional sources round out this simple and playful introduction to matter from the Garbage Gang's Super Science Questions series.
