by Jonah Winter and illustrated by Red Nose Studio. The garbage in this book doesn’t just stink-it oozes and melts in the hot summer sun. Winter tackles the true-life tale of the 1987 Garbage Barge fiasco in this entirely amusing mix of fact and fiction. When the city of Islip on Long Island ends up with too much garbage, some businessmen (merged into a single character here named Gino Stroffolino) decide the best solution is to ship it to a distant Southern contact. Trouble arises when the barge and stalwart Cap’m Duffy St. Pierre find themselves turned away at every port.

Awesome book! I remember the real Garbage Barge from my childhood and wanted to share this story with my kids. This book is so charming and clever and beautiful! Now I need every book illustrated by Red Nose Studio.

I love this book! It's such an interestesting (and true) story. I feel in increases children's awareness of the production of too much garbage in our society, and how it doesn't really "go away" once we throw it out.

My 4-yr old loves this book so much I had to buy him a copy! We've borrowed it several times from the library, but he never gets tired of it so we figured just buy him a copy and he can have it forever!

"Garbage Barge" is a book that has lessons to learn from so many points. Obviously, the first lesson to learn is about our environmental responsibility. At the time of this story, garbage from New York City and Long Island was routinely mounded on land or barged out to the Mudhole just off the New Jersey coast for dumping. This book takes a look at what happens when someone says that enough is enough, you gotta find a better way - and in steps Gino with a "brilliant plan". The second lesson is a lesson of geography - my daughter can use a map and track the travels of the barge with my grandson and note how many miles the barge actually goes while on this great stinking adventure. The last lesson is one of understanding of your fellow man. This is not a slap-in-the-face book of Italian-American stereotypes - as noted in most of the negative reviews - it is just a story populated with certain people from a certain region who speak with a very distinctive dialect. People from Long Island regularly "murder the King's English" - it's who they are and it's what makes them prime fodder for books like these. They axs quessions. They say "houz youz doin" as a statement. They say "dis","dat", and "What's it to ya?" Geez, lighten up - if you don't like the dialect of the fine people of Long Island - whatever the nationality, then open an elocution school in Brooklyn and help fix the perceived problem. As for the book, it's a great read for kids and a great starting point for some interesting discussions.

Based on an actual environmental disaster, my grandson (me, too) really liked the story and illustrations.

My 3.5 year old son loves this book! Enjoyable read for families with lovely illustrations! Highly recommended!
This beautiful and humorous picture book chronicles the true story of a little tugboat and its barge full of garbage setting out from Long Island and venturing from port to port all the way to Texas and back, turned away at each attempt to unload its stinky cargo anywhere but the place it started from. Winter's clever text accompanied by the animation-like illustrations of Red Nose Studio tells a tale for our time: Make Less Garbage!!!
