At the beginning of the time on planet Earth, the trees and all the plants could walk, talk and live a happy life.
One day, during a very hot season, Mrs. Florence and Mr. Florian decide to go to the lake to get their feet (or roots?) wet. When they arrive at the lake, they find out that the water had evaporated and disappeared!
With friendship and teamwork, the plants save the lake and decide to live around it, as the forest cover will save the lake forever.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book is part of the “Living Green” series, picture books that promote environmental awareness and teamwork. The first book of the series – Living Green – was written in the 1990's to be an animated story. Now, I'm writing new books to bring up other subjects, such as water, air, earth and friendship. Climate change is real, and some communities already suffer from water shortage. In my opinion, unless we prepare the new generations for the climate problems, our planet will have a short life from now. Everyone should work as a team to avoid the planet Earth death.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
How to explain a problem without the direct participation of those who suffer most from it? Also, fables have been one of the best way to teach good things to kids.
When Florian Bushy visited the ECO-92 – Earth Summit in June 1992, his environmentalist side flourished. Since then, he has written books, produced more than 100 short documentaries for schools, and sorted his recycling to make a difference in this world. Florian Bushy wants to show to the kids that environmental protection, friendship and mutual respect can change the future of their home, called Earth.
