Ziggy's a piggy, and Iggy's his pop. And Iggy collects and saves just about everything:

"From cans to flat tires
to old paper bags,
to sofas and soupspoons,
to old clothes and rags."

Ziggy's a bit embarrassed when his schoolmates say he lives in a dump, but his father tells him the reason for all this saving will soon become clear. He's building something special, and everyone's invited to see it the very next morning.

"Then what they all saw
made them cheer, dance and sing:
"An amazing invention!"
"A most beautiful thing!""

Young readers are sure to get caught up in the excitement of this sprightly story with an environmental theme.
