Five funny animated films comment ruefully on our relationship with the natural world.

"Delightful, full of playful humor and clever drollery...an excellent series for any school or public library collection." Teacher Librarian

A major new talent in animation, Nick Hilligoss, has produced a brilliant series of five wordless films that make us laugh as we reflect on the lessons we still have to learn if we expect to be a sustainable species.

The titles in the series are:

Turtle World - A powerful allegory about the survivability of Homo sapiens.

Cell Animation - You can escape in nature.

Lower Orders - A new and funny look at the food chain!

Banjo Frogs - An adolescent frog learns to fit in with new neighbors.

Possum's Rest - Can humans and wildlife co-exist in the suburbs?
