Just a Dream

Nanhai Publishing House

$12.95 

Walter, an environmental ignoramus of a 10 year old, is careless or scornful of such elementary actions as recycling or tree planting. One nightmarish evening, however, he visits a future where his daydreams of technological paradise are demolished. Instead, there is merely a horrifically exacerbated continuation of today's eco-problems: landfills, expressways, smog, lifeless oceans, and vanished wilderness. Walter awakens reformed, and is rewarded with another dream: the future redeemed. As the story exhibits Van Allsburg's "signature" character (a child free of adult supervision) and plot (the dream-vision), so the pictures display the hallmarks of the artist's style: bird's- and worm's-eye perspectives, dramatic lighting effects, some geometric simplification of forms.


沃尔特原本是一个不会爱护环境的孩子,他乱丢垃圾、不给垃圾分类,还认为隔壁的小女孩把一棵树当做生日礼物是一件可笑至极的事情。有一天,他在梦里来到了 未来,可未来跟他期望的完全不一样:大堆大堆的垃圾、炽热污浊的烟雾、拥挤不堪的交通……这真的是未来吗?回到现实中以后,沃尔特变了……

  作者克里斯·范·奥尔斯伯格用风格独特的图画讲述了一个关于环境保护的故事。如果肆意地破坏环境,未来到底会是什么样子?奥尔斯伯格向我们一一道来。
