In this classic kid’s tale, we meet the Lorax, who represents all the trees whose lives are threatened by the forces of industry. A gentler version of Miyazaki’s troubling, intense film Princess Mononoke, it’s one of the best-known environmental parables for children. It has proven controversial too, getting banned in some school districts in America for being “anti-logging industry.”
