Critically acclaimed children's author Jonah Winter reimagines a true story from 1987. The small Long Island town of Islip has a big problem-3,168 tons of garbage and no place to put it! So workers pile the smelly refuse on a large barge, hire a tug boat, and send the stuff south to find a final resting place. But as the barge travels from North Carolina to New Orleans and from Mexico to Belize-nobody wants Islip's rotting mountain of garbage. "Winter's folksy, storyteller's voice captures the scruffy spirit of the adventure with plenty of humor ."-Booklist
