The Tindims: Win the entire series of these quirky and magical adventure books

Meet the mysterious Tindims: tiny people who turn human rubbish into treasure! Full of joy and laughter, as well as an environmental slant, your child will fall in love with this lively cast of characters. 

You have probably never seen a Tindim. They are so tiny, it’s easy to miss them but they are there all the same: miniature recyclers, turning today’s rubbish into tomorrow’s treasure. The Tindims built their home and Rubbish Island entirely from things we have thrown away, just like Borrowers-on-Sea.

This wonderful new book series by Sally Gardener has short and funny stories, with sweet illustrations by Lydia Corry – ideal for 6 to 8 year olds looking for their next read.
