Down Under

Τα ζώα εκεί κάτω

- How come these animals don't fall off?
- Well, here is a Cockatiel!

A cuddly nymph who's fair,
is dancing through the air.

Let me tell you in detail,
her plumage is mostly pale.

She will find me on the ground,
if she keeps looking around.

- But what about the Sugar glider, or the Platypus? Or the Parrot fish?
-Let's find out about them!

When Zoe Nikolopoulou first met Evagellia Kaliva in a far, far land, she knew that they would create something beautiful... so beautiful as some animals of Australia.

A mermaid's serenade

Ο αρραβώνας της γοργόνας

She's sending out invitations,
making all these annotations,
without pause or hesitations.

A mermaid's beautiful and bright,
tho her face turns pale with fright,
in the end, she'll be allright.

The lavish marriage of her dreams,
all-white shells and pinkish gleams,
a silky gown made of beams.

A mermaid falls for a human diver. Determined to be with him, she decides to marry him. But even when plans go awry for her and she must make a sacrifice for her realm, she has no second thoughts. It is our own actions that lead to pollution but we can do something about it. Just like the mermaid did. Follow her friends in a unique quest and learn about the effects of polluting our marine environments.

Oak tree

I was walking in the grove
talking to the trees, I rove.

Then, I found a downy leaf
a thorny shell, what a relief!

Belonging to an oak tree
with bendy branches, as I see.

On top of it, there's a fairy,
That one day, I may marry.

Passersby are scared of her,
as her name Dryad were.

One day you may go for a walk in the wood and discover some enormous Trees whose branches talk to you. You may reach into the clouds too. When children climb Trees, they discover that they are very strange. Different magical stories, unknown words and creatures, fairies, ancient souls and gods are about to unveil.
