"Flipflopi is an account of many things: inspiration, collaboration, and ingenuity, as well as the dire need for humans (particularly those who use the most plastic) to reduce the harm we do to the environment when we throw plastic away. A useful and timely supplement to a social studies or science curriculum." --Booklist
"Flip-flops and other plastic debris form the sailboat that stars in this real-life story from Ravin Lodding and Pabari, about a Kenyan coastal community's response to ocean trash. . . . Concluding pictures show the vessel, christened Flipflopi, taking a maiden voyage after a brilliant sunrise--an uplifting symbol of the awakening featured." --Publishers Weekly
