Kikir of the Walking Trees

Stirred by the rising number of displaced children in the world, writer Dee Coleman and artist Elizabeth Mordensky have created an illustrated children's book with a message about tolerance and conservation. The open ended illustrated tale is told through the eyes of the plants and animals and is set on a mystical and pristine island facing the threat of over-development. As habitat is lost, the characters are forced to live closer together with fewer resources to share. Readers are prompted to start a conversation about the scenario and to ask children to use imagination to write an ending. The common themes from these contributions will then lead the plot of the next book.
