About the Book – This book has a strong environmental message that can be talked about with students, but it also can be about the very talented and memorable author named Bill Peet. Creativity and talent goes hand in hand in with Bill Peet as an author and as an animator who created many books and characters that will never be forgotten. Read what one book reviewer wrote to the kids. “ As I have watched the world become paved over, I have been reminded of a book I loved as a child and the message it offered. It's been at least twenty years since I last saw this book, but I've never forgotten that message.”
