Napville

All is peace and quiet in Napville, a picturesque town in the foothills. The local inhabitants, civilised woodland creatures, enjoy a life here that is tranquil and ordinary, sparing them over-excitement and wild adventures. Until, that is, a dinosaur shows up in town.

Alma, a brave little wolverine, befriends him in and names him Kory. Kory’s arrival finally provides the spirited little girl with the buddy she’s been missing in her humdrum little town. And that can only mean one thing: the lives of all the citizens of Napville are about to be rattled. The dinosaur’s bluntness and unawareness of local customs results in lots of funny, poignant and suspenseful situations. Alma tries to assimilate her friend into town life, but not everyone is willing to accept this.

The person who most objects to Kory’s presence is the town’s handyman and Alma’s neighbour, Earz the wolf. He is always trying to find reasons why the dinosaur should be forced out of town. His rifts with Alma and Kory are a thread running through the series to spur on their fun and adventures.

Napville is a charming, engaging children’s series about unlikely friendships, finding your place in the world and, more implicitly, how diversity can enrich our customs and society.
