Dennis to Alice, written by George S Broughton, is far more than a picture book, it is a movie in a book, with real-life drama which ignite questions on climate, nature, extinction and conservation.
Dennis, a violent storm, felled a mighty elder tree which dammed a flooded but usually peaceful river. Then a pandemic swept across the world to isolate the spot along with the author. But, also captured along with manmade environmental contaminants, is the transformation that took place from busy contrail skies to blue and verdant water scenes…and a pair of geese that made this their home. Then kayakers tackle the obstacle, boaters try to remove it, a swan performs… and a fox attacks’…
“More material coming down river adds to the dam, logs, timber, some cans and regrettably more plastic. Evidence of mankind’s effect on the environment. It’s extraordinary how long it’s taking to get those out of our lives. We have a duty to preserve this beautiful planet, we must treasure it, before it’s too late” – George S Boughton
