The Rabbits by John Marsden and illustrated by Shaun Tan is an allegory about colonisation, told from the perspective of animals.

"A rich and haunting allegory for all ages, all cultures.
'The rabbits came many grandparents ago.
They built houses, made roads, had children.
They cut down trees.
A whole continent of rabbits...'

The Rabbits offers a rich and immensely valuable perspective on the effect of man on his environment. It aims to promote cultural awareness and a sense of caring for the environment.
