This weekend Owl, Frog, and Eagle helped Alitsa the salmon clear the mudslide and save the river for all the salmon! The Seattle Symphony and Seattle Opera introduced these characters as a part of the "Our Earth" opera in the Discover Music concert series. Concert-goers were invited to make finger puppets of the characters with me using toilet paper rolls.
Alitsa: A salmon-girl, a fish in the water and human on land
Owl: an inquisitive owl who fears the disappearance of his home
Frog: A sensitive tree frog
Eagle: A bossy, wise golden eagle

Finger puppet success!
