Snowboy and the Last Tree Standing

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Birgitta Sif. Greenbackboy ropes Snowboy into playing a game called "KA-CHING," which requires cutting down trees and depleting the ocean of fish. Fortunately, Snowboy saved one tree and two fish when Greenbackboy wasn't looking; can Snowboy restore nature's balance? The strange story, set in an unspecified place and time, is a seductive fantasia with an ecological message draped in beguilingly broody art.
