Synopsis

From CBBC presenter Maddie Moate: a collection of incredible stories about STUFF!



Do you ever wonder where your stuff comes from, and what happens to it when you're finished with it?



Did you know that you can make paper out of elephant poo? And plastic packaging out of seaweed? And did you know that if you throw away an old T-shirt, it can take 200 years to break down?



This book is full of mind-bursting facts and extraordinary stories of the ingenious ways people around the world, and across history, have made, used and re-used the stuff around them.

Maddie Moate is a BAFTA winning presenter and YouTuber, passionate about curiosity and inspiring children with the wonders of the world. She is the host of the BAFTA nominated TV series "Maddie's Do You Know?", Sony Music's podcast "Maddie's Sound Explorers" and presented BBC Earth's "Earth Unplugged". Maddie's YouTube channel is full of fun, family-focused science videos that have taken her on curious adventures around the world. Her channel is also home to the wildly popular series "Let's Go Live with Maddie and Greg", a live family science show which helped countless families with homeschooling over lockdown. Paul Boston grew up in the English countryside and spent much of his time heading off into the fields and woods exploring and drawing pictures of the wildlife he found. Now, from his country hideaway in South Wales, Paul keeps himself busy illustrating books for young people on subjects including: inventions, airplanes, trains, string and anything else you care to mention. Paul isn't as well travelled as Maddie but he has watched Maori people cooking hangi food in the hot springs of New Zealand and spent time among the elephants in Thailand. He would love to try making paper out of elephant poo, but there aren't many elephants in Wales.
