The Dumpster Saga

Ben, the narrator of The Dumpster Saga is contending with aliens, secret agents, a bothersome little brother, he’s trying to impress a girl and he’s got a job which requries him to wear a bear suit.

That might not be much fun for Ben but it’s a lot of fun for the reader.

The Dumpster Saga, by Craig Harrison was a finalist in last year’s children’s book awards. It’s aimed at older children and teenagers but like any good young people’s book will be enjoyed by adults too.

I gave copies to a friend and a niece who are teachers and both then bought class sets of it.
