WHO KNEW BEING GREEN COULD BE SO HILARIOUS?

 

Green the PondPieces: Green From  Up is an extraordinary cartoon collection profiling nature in a humorous way providing educators and parents with an environmental platform that answers the question “who knew being green could be so hilarious?!”

 

      SCOTTSDALE, AZ (June 2011) –  Who knew being green could be so hilarious?  Do you know the real cause of cloud to cloud lightning? Will the Pond survive a cartoon character lawsuit brought by P.A.N.I.C., Parents Against Nature in Cartoons? Can you imagine how T-Rex is transported into today’s society?  Would you like to see just how much of a “bug” a dragonfly truly is?  Have you ever seen the dark side of the moon?  Green Pieces: Green From the Pond Up is an extraordinary cartoon collection profiling nature in a humorous way providing educators with an environmental platform that affirmatively answers these questions with a resounding “Yes!”

 

People around the world are familiar with some part of nature, be it the environment or its inhabitants. All of nature serves as the setting for the characters in the collection of cartoon strips, Green Pieces:  Green From the Pond Up, by Drew Aquilina.  Clouds, insects, birds, mammals and plants are “game” for the cartoon strip Green pieces©, naturally, the world’s greenest and most environmentally friendly humorTM.   Winner of the 2011 Green Book Festival, Comics/Graphic Novels division, 2011 Paris Book Festival Wildcard Book of the Year, 2011 New York Book Festival Comics Runner Up and 2011 San Francisco Book Festival, Wildcard division, Honorable Mention, nothing is overlooked by this clever feature. The cartoon strip and Green Pieces:  Green From the Pond Up highlight four main characters who introduce the reader to the life and times around a typical wetland, in this case a pond. Led by the claustrophobic turtle protagonist named Iggman, the action picks up once humans leave the scene.  “Iggy’s” friends include an annoying antagonist dragonfly, Radic; an omnipotent techno-bullfrog, Cabby; and a rogue raccoon, Roc.
