PBD: Varmints


This dark picturebook from Helen Ward and Marc Craste is an allegory for urban plight and the challenges of environment protection. The award winning illustrations are subtlety rendered in dark hues and set the mood for the narrative. This book mends me of Marsden and Tan's book The Rabbits. Excellent!
