As morning breaks over Australia’s red earth, a rustling sound can be heard. Lizards stand on their hind legs while the ants are making tea. Animals trade desert peas for internet access, koalas and termites share bottles of pop, and the buffalo ride into town on Harleys. When night falls, the community breaks out into dancing and revelry.
This latest story from Angelica Bordeaux, in the vein of “The Spider” and “The Incredible Mr Bones”, once again displays her gift for portraying the fascinating lives of animals. With an ensemble cast of Australian bush creatures, “At the End of Australia” will move you to laughter and wonderment.
