You can read the full synopsis above but here is a brief version.

Brief Synopsis:

This fast-paced thriller ensnares intelligence agents, drug cartel overlords and politicians in a twisted web of deceit and deception.

Camila Sanchez, an Argentinian garbage sifter, finds a partially shredded confidential CIA document among her overnight collection of refuse.

*The Garbage Sifter is his fourth book.

*Jones is married with two grown sons and lives with his wife in Hendersonville.


Spoiler Alert.

I don’t say this too often but I actually like what I read. Mr. Jones was able to capture my attention from the get go. In the first Chapter you are introduced to Camila who’s husband died and left her a single mother, who also happens to be taking care of her mother. Who turns to “garbage sifting” as a way to provide for all of them, in addition to her husbands pension.

I also, feel that he described things well. I have read several books that just over describe or under describe what is going on.

That being said, there were times when it was hard to keep my attention, and I would space out and have to reread things several times.

All in All



Young readers will:

1. Learn facts about animals and how they drink
2. Be curious and ask questions
3. Enjoy great and colorful images
4. Enjoy a book about animals

This is a sweet children’s book written primarily for children ages four to eight years old. Targeting beginner readers, the book contains simple text and colorful illustrations.

Review: Short book, to keep kids interested. Yet long enough to be enjoyable.

Full of interesting tidbits about the animals. This book was right up my daughters alley.  She loves animals so much so she became vegetarian.

My son also liked it, just maybe not as much. Both fall in the recommended age group.
