A moving - and moving! - picture book featuring charming pop-up paper engineering, Animus is the story of a little girl and a vicious dog.
From her first frightful encounter with the animal, through a fanciful series of attempts at communication, the girl comes to realise that some differences are irreconcilable. This book utilises a unique mix of beautiful paintings and cleverly animated pop-up elements to bring its characters and their emotions to life. Children and adults will relate to this story’s well-intentioned protagonist, and to the notion that some bullies are destined to remain bullies no matter how hard one tries to change them.
