Ten years after his acclaimed Hey! Get Off Our Train set a new standard of fun for the environmental fable, John Burningham once again tackles the theme with a daring and enchanting new picture book about taking care of planet Earth. Whadayameanimagines God taking a tour of planet Earth with two children--and finding dirty water, foul air, forests chopped and burned, and hungry people. "You have spoiled my lovely world," God then tells the children. "You must go and tell the grownups to change the way they are living;." And so the children set off to spread God's message. And sure enough, people do listen and take notice. When God comes back for another visit, the world is a cleaner, better place. Told with John Burningham's signature ability to see with the eyes and heart of a child, here is a whimsical, exuberant, and entirely original tale filled with striking mixed-media art and an essential message about protecting the planet.
