Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Walter is a litterbug who does not appreciate the beauty of nature, or understand his role in keeping the planet healthy . . . until a fantastic journey shows him the tragic fate that could befall Earth if humans like him are not more careful. Are Walters actions really helping his planet along the road to destruction, or is it all just a dream? Chris Van Allsburgs classic story of environmental responsibility is now available in this special paperback edition with french flaps.

Synopsis:

Young Walter litters and refuses to sort trash for recycling, until he dreams of an overcrowded and polluted future which terrifies him into taking care of the earth.

Synopsis:

A surrealistic masterpiece about the environment. Young Walter couldn't care less about the environment until a terrifying nightmare about the future--with landfills buying neighborhoods--drastically changes his perspective. "Van Allsburg reaches a new pinnacle of excellence in both illustration and storytelling".--Publishers Weekly. Full color.
