Flooded is a beautifully illustrated book which tells the story of animals living in a city which is slowly flooding, carrying important messages about climate change, the importance of community and dealing with problems before they get too big.
Flooded is the funny and beautifully illustrated tale of animals who live in a city that is ever so slowly flooding.
The flood comes gradually at first. All the animals ignore the obvious and go about their busy lives, disjointed from one another and preoccupied by their own problems. Eventually, the flood water reaches a height that they can no longer ignore and they have to work together to save their city. All the animals join together in a line and pull out the plug that is drowning the city. This is an exceptionally illustrated story that teaches a message not to let problems fester and with a little team work and community spirit, no problem is insurmountable.
