I actually liked this a little better than I was expecting. The message/moral couldn't be more obvious ('Don't Make So Much Garbage!'), but a little heavy-handedness in this particular case doesn't bother me. Some readers find the art creepy and off-putting and I can definitely see where they're coming from there, but it didn't necessarily affect me in that way. I like the idea that the art was created from found-materials! Super cool. Unfortunately, my copy was a library book so I couldn't read more about the techniques used (located inside the book jacket).
