With all his might, a buffalo pushes at a rock wall, his horns digging into the mountainside in an attempt to move an island. For the island, you see, is doomed: a comet streaking through the sky will soon crash right into it, obliterating it completely.
So begins our tale, an animal allegory composed of brief vignettes. These episodes introduce us to a starling who’s lost his way midmigration, a baby elephant learning about the history of the world, a bird who helps an ostrich change the way she looks at herself. Together, these highly evocative fables recall the delights of the La Fontaine and the tumultuous imagery of The Jungle Book.
