A collection of shorts that captures the characters of beloved books and tales on their unusual adventures.


The characters in this collection leap off the pages of beloved books and tales, ready to come to life. In one short, an inquisitive little frog with a large appetite goes off to discover the riverbank in search of new things to eat. On her way, she meets some of the animals that live in the neighborhood: a mole, a rabbit, a deer, a mouse... questions what they eat. In another short, an old dog can indeed learn new tricks! This wolf is not in sheep's clothing, by a long shot. In fact, he's vegan now and plays the ukulele. Can the pigs trust him?
