Synopsis: In a story about reusing and recycling, Ziggy is a bit embarrassed because his pop, Iggy, saves everything from cans to flat tires, but soon the reason for all the saving becomes clear to Ziggy.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 2-Ziggy the pig has a pop named Iggy who's a great collector of everything from cans to flat tires to old clothes and rags. Because his father fills the house with his finds, Ziggy's classmates make fun of him and tell him he lives in a dump. Ziggy has the last laugh, however, when Iggy unveils his masterpiece-a glittering balloon he has constructed out of junk-in which father and son proceed to fly around the world. If this sounds banal and contrived, just sample the sing-song rhyme scheme and didactic moralizing of this tale: "Protect our dear earth./Don't throw it away./You, too, could make magic/from garbage someday." Murdocca's skillful use of light, shadow, and color in the background illustrations competes unsuccessfully with his cloyingly cutesy depictions of the pigs. The aerodynamic improbability of a flying machine made of junk metal serves as an apt metaphor for this book-both go over like lead balloons.
