Books Go Walk About
"Carefully crafted minimalist words create a frisson of anticipation of what may be happening to the idealistic natural world so well portrayed."
"This lyrical book is a child's dream of a world where nobody harms wild creatures and where water is unpolluted and the air is pure. "I dreamt I was a whale... and no hunters chased after me. I dreamt I was a seal... and no one wanted fur from me.' This inspirational picture book is a call to all of us to stand up for the future of our planet and help to save our wild world. The magical pictures take us right into the child's dream world - on the first page, his bed floats on a sea filled with beauty. Each picture is a work of art, reflecting our wonderful world and all that lives on and in it; look at all the detail and use the pictures and text as the basis for discussion."
