Synopsis: Old Beaver’s idyllic valley, where he built so many dams, is under threat from developers of a luxury hotel. When bulldozers and steam shovels arrive, he and his friends organize in what looks like an uphill battle. Meanwhile, a little girl who loves nature hears about the hotel and joins the fight. Can they succeed? Old Beaver’s mysterious dream about the red rock offers unexpected hope. Beautifully illustrated, The Red Rock is a persuasive tale about the importance of loving and preserving an increasingly threatened environment.

From School Library Journal: Grade 2-5 Nitto's book definitely lives up to its subtitle. The cautionary intent of the tale could hardly be clearer, and the animal characters carry the ecological message. While Old Beaver surveys an unspoiled valley, developers in the city discuss plans to construct a large dam so that they can make plenty of money with a luxury hotel, casino, and cruise ships. The animals' attempts to block the environmental destruction cannot withstand the onslaught of machinery. Then the full-color illustrations and standard picture-book format give way to a black-and-white cartoon dream sequence. Energized by rays from the huge red rock that guards the valley, Old Beaver captures the developer and forces him to confront the clear-cut landscape and dead animals. He even wins the battle to turn the force of GREED into GREEN. With this new outlook, the developer reforms and helps restore the natural balance. Was this transformation a result of a little girl's wish on a star? No one can explain the red rock's mysterious power or how the reversal of events occurred. Readers who make it to the end will emerge confused, bored, or both. Even those who share the author's philosophy will wonder if such didacticism and wishful thinking do anything to spread an environmental message. Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
