In this irresistible book, artist and designer Barbara Klunder puts her own spin on familiar children's favorites. Rock-a-Bye Baby laments the loss of her treetop to logging. Old Mother Hubbard must resort to a food bank. Jack and Jill discover their well water is polluted, while Mary watches her garden flourish with weeding and fertilizing. Second-hand smoke, recycling, allergies, logging, pollution, oil spills, gasoline shortages, and crooked politicians are all treated with Klunder's typical whimsy and wit. Striking, graphic black-and-white illustrations drive the point home -- what are humans doing to the planet?
