Lydia Corry and Sally Gardner are an unstoppable Mother-Daughter duo who created the Tindims series to empower the next generation

The Tindims are a wonderful and whacky bunch, living off the coast on rubbish Island, they represent something that was close to home for both Lydia and Sally. "What is rubbish today is treasure tomorrow" is the Tindims motto, the idea conceived from beachside walks together along the South coast.

Both Lydia and Sally are passionate about the environment, living by the sea they often witness first-hand the negative effects of drifting plastic and rubbish. The Tindims were created to help spread knowledge and empowerment to the younger generation, and both Lydia and Sally hope that by drawing parallels between the world we live in and the wonderful Tindim realm, it will make the issues we face today easier to understand for young readers. 

In this interview we talk about wonderful illustrations, Sally's decades in writing, the Tindims story, how anyone can help the planet, and why the younger age group are the key to saving our planet. Watch it below and find out more about "Floating Moon" here
