Farewell to Shady Glade

Farewell to Shady Glade

by Bill Peet
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin
Trade Paperback, 38 pages
Current Retail Price: $9.99

Bulldozers push the raccoon and his friends from their home, but they are able to find a new one after a terrifying train ride.

This is the first book by Bill Peet written to raise awareness of environmental problems. The second environmental picture book for children was The Wump World, published in 1970. A year after the Wump World was published, the Dr. Suess book The Lorax was published. There are interesting parallels in The Lorax to both The Wump World and Farewell to Shady Glade.
