Can humans and wildlife co-exist in the suburbs?
It was a quiet, leafy neighborhood until the humans moved in. Motors, loud music and barbecue smoke disrupt possum sleeping hours, and then the humans have the nerve to get upset with a little moonlight song and 3 a.m. clogging on a tin roof. Can humans and wildlife co-exist in the suburbs?
Other 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.
"These award-winning programs are open to myriad interpretations and analyses, which is a feature that makes them marvelously adaptable to a widely diverse range of age levels and curricular areas. All are delightful, full of playful humor and clever drollery...an excellent series for any school or public library collection."
