JUST A DREAM by Chris Van Allsburg

JUST A DREAM

Email this review

KIRKUS REVIEW

Having littered, scoffed at a friend's newly planted tree, and failed to sort his trash, Walter dreams of a future buried in garbage, with even the Grand Canyon hidden by smog. No enigmatic subtext here, just the unabashed message--and Van Allsburg's lucid, powerfully composed art doing what it's supposed to: making graphic Pogo's plaint that "We have met the enemy and he is us."
