Award-winning picture book author and illustrator Chris Gall shares his new book Awesome Dawson. "Everything can be used again!" That's Dawson's motto. He collects junk that people throw away and turns it into something stupendous. In Gall's new picture book about a boy superhero who turns trash into treasure (and saves the world!), he inspires kids to reuse, repurpose, and recycle.
