Rate this:

In this innovative graphic fable, Old Beaver climbs to the top of a hill and admires the dams, ponds and lodges down below. He has built many of them over the years. Across the valley is the huge red rock that has always seemed like his friend. But in the city, far from this peaceful scene, developers are planning to use the valley for their own purposes. To them, it is the perfect spot for a luxury hotel.

When bulldozers and steam shovels arrive in the valley, some of the animals lose their homes, some flee to safety, others perish. And Old Beaver, who tries to organize a fight to protect their world, seems destined to lose. But then in a mysterious dream, he and the red rock become a magical duo. In the dream sequence, The Red Rock breaks into a full-fledged wordless comic. The message is clear -- we need to fight to protect our beautiful world, and we need help from our friends to do so.
