Animal Land, An Allegorical Fable of WWII

Review Excerpt

"Poised skillfully between Aesop’s fables and The History of World War II, Leland James’ enchanting allegorical tale relates the story of the war with a cast of cleverly chosen animals playing all the parts. Chamberlain is a possum, Churchill is a beaver, the German armies are mutant “crocadogs”, “wolf-things” and “yikes” and the victims of the holocaust are “songbirds”. Brilliantly illustrated by Anne Zimanski, “Animal Land” is a must-read for children from nine to ninety. A page-turning mixture of wonder and horror with a message for our own times proclaimed at its closing by a wise old owl." --Johnmichael Simon, chief editor Cyclamens and Swords Publishing.
