Whilst browsing Borders today... as you do when you have a deadline coming up. I found this gorgeous childrens illustration story called Varmints by Helen Ward! The illustrations are just amazing and as you can see appeal to adults as well as children. In-fact the whole story line is cool. Its about industrialisation taking over a perfect serene world... and one little varmint tries to save the last living piece of wilderness to remind the others of whats important!
There is also a short animation by Marc Craste available only on itunes.... get it!!
