Elisabeth Beresford first came up with the idea for the Wombles characters one day when walking on Wimbledon Common with her two children. The Wombles have since so charmed the nation that they were chosen as the mascots for the Tidy Britain campaign. Elisabeth Beresford was awarded an MBE for her services to children's literature in 1998.Review:
`A lively, entertaining and humorous book, stuffed with ingenious ideas and endearing characters' * The Times * `There's something wonderfully old-fashioned and charming about the "short, fat, furry" creatures. They are simple without being simplistic, innocent without being naive, civic minded for its own sake' * Irish Examiner * `Today's children will be as charmed as their parents by Great Uncle Bulgaria, Orinoco, Bungo and Tobermory and their quest to recycle rubbish and put it to good use' * www.express.co.uk * `The six original titles by Elizabeth Beresford are back in print, with an environmental message that has never been more relevant. Perfect for 8-to 10-year-olds' * Telegraph magazine *
