17. Speak Up (Public Speaking and the Environment)

Jenny Bridge is a shy, soft-spoken teen-ager who cares about the environment; so much so, she even won the Inter-School Competition. This would be great news, except now Principal MacKenzie just announced she will make a speech about her winning the award in front of the entire school. Nilus the Sandman has to act fast and uses his magical dust to travel with Jenny into a Dr. Seuss nightmare world of crazy contraptions that are used to controlling the entire universe. There a powerful Mr. Clear controls the flow of the tides, rainfall, daylight and the intensity of the sun with his technology. Of course there are some odd glitches with his contraptions, the sun is brown and the air stinks, but that will be dealt with in due course. No need to rely on Mother Nature now that there's technology, right? Faced with such a situation, Jenny can't believe that no one is speaking up to stop such nonsense. After her dream, back on-stage, Jenny finds the courage to do her speech on something she believes strongly in, protecting the environment. 05/08DE PI 30 min.
