I loved the Alvin Fernald series when I was a kid. I distinctly remember reading this, and while I enjoyed it, I did not like it as much as other books in the series.

It is about how Alvin, his friend Shoie, and Alvin's sister "The Pest" secretly combat pollution in their small town. They call themselves Superweasel, and The Pest even makes a costume for her brother. It is a really good book to start kids thinking about our environment, and definitely an early ecological book.

Alvin Fernald gets all environmentally conscious with another exciting adventure. Not much ecological information in this book, but hey, it's an Alvin Fernald adventure, so you gotta love it for that.
