Ebb Vandyke lives with the rest of his family on the ‘Rose Of Sylvania’. They slowly travel up and down the river, having lots of adventures, and meeting lots of interesting people. Ebb is very keen on keeping the river enviroment clean and tidy. He gets very cross when he sees rubbish on the river bank or even worse floating on the water. He is always putting up notices ‘Keep Sylvania Clean’ and ‘Use the bin provided’.
