Meet Justine McKeen, the Queen of Green. She talks a little too much, bosses a little too much, and tells the truth, just not all at once. She's trying to save the planet, one person at a time, and when she decides to get something done, it's a lot of fun.

In Justine McKeen, Pooper Scooper, the third book in the Justine McKeen series, Justine gets her friends to help her clean up the dog poop in the park across from the school board's offices in an effort to get the attention of the superintendent of schools. She hopes the efforts of her crew of cheerful pooper scoopers will help get the superintendent to see that bringing their school librarian back to work is the right thing to do.
"An inspiring story about protest...[and] written at an appropriate level so that young children will understand that, through identifying a problem and acting peacefully through protest and pro-active action, change is possible."

"Brouwer tackles some significant concerns affecting our environment."
– School Library Journal
"Brouwer manages to create a believable and likable crusader in Justine. His writing is fun and informative without ever feeling didactic."
