Once upon a time, the animals and birds lived happily in a beautiful forest that provided for all their needs. Sadly, pollution begins to destroy their shelter and food supply, and their future looks bleak. Fortunately, Wise Owl leads the animals to Professor Noah who is building a spaceship. The kind professor invites the animals to blast-off with him to another planet in order to escape the destruction of the forest. After travelling for forty days and forty nights, the time guidance system is accidentally twisted in reverse and the space travellers end up back on Earth in a pristine forest just after Noah's famous biblical flood. This reissue of Brian Wildsmith's still timely story speaks to the need for 21st-century environmental protection and preservation.
