Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide (February, 1991)
Walter litters unthinkingly but learns his lesson after a nightmarish experience during which his bed travels into a frightening future of a polluted world. He awakens, orders a tree for his birthday, and is rewarded on a subsequent night with a vision of an alternative future. The book is visually fascinating; it is the heavy-handed didacticism of the narrative that is a disappointment.

Taken from the Hardcover.
