Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stop Pollution is the Message Wonderful story with an ecological message. The wumps live on a perfectly green world and one day rockets arrive and the Polutians land. Seems the Polutians have wrecked their own planet and have come to do the same thing to Wump World. Not a happy ending but one with a glimmer of hope.

Most of my animal characters have human personalities, and some are much like the people I know."At Walt Disney, where Bill Peet worked for 27 years, he was a key participant in the production of classic films such as Fantasia, Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and 101 Dalmatians for which he was not only an artist, but the screenwriter as well.Bill Peet?s signature style enabled him to create fast-paced stories of fantastical adventure delivered with warmth and laugh-out-loud hilarity.
