内容About the Book

A rabbit named Olyander comes to live in the tropical rain forest. Two animals; Mac, a macaw and Lemmy, a ring tailed lemur, do not want an "outsider" coming to live in their forest, and they plot how to "convince" Olyander Rabbit to leave, but each plan back fires, harming only themselves. From this they learn several important lessons:

a. acceptance/tolerance of people who are different than you / who are from different cultures
b. don't be mean to others, it will only backfire on you in the end, and
c. make up your own mind if you like someone, despite what some of your peers think

There is a surprise "interracial" marriage proposal at the end and everyone lives in harmony for ever after. The play also teaches flora and fauna of the tropical rain forest.
