The Wump World

by Bill Peet

One Potato Review

No Lorax, this, still here is a nice little fable, simply told, and elaborately illustrated, about a grassy little planet turned apocalyptic wasteland. The value added is the aliens who end up being responsible for all of this overdevelopment, who seem to have done it before, and who hardly hesitate to send out scouts toward some other further reaches when the fumes become too much to bear. Coming to a planet near you.
