This debut picture book is a humorous introduction to recycling and composting for young readers!

There is rioting, rotting, and reeking. Please send us your Lemon Fresh group! Bring all your top sponges and cleaners. Our city smells worse than . . . pea soup!

In the jam-packed city of Fridge-opolis, Swiss cheese has turned moldy and bleu. The broccoli is in a bad mood downtown in the crispers. And the Eastside high-rises are full of dressings cloudy with gloom. With the city in chaos, Mayor Mayonnaise calls on Doctor Baking Soda at Undersink Labs for help. Will they be able to save Fridge-opolis from utter rancid ruin?


Melissa Coffey spent years writing professionally for grown-ups before discovering her love writing for kids. She hopes her first picture book will inspire readers to become food waste warriors and planet-saving superheroes. Melissa lives with her food adventurous family in Austin, Texas.
