Elephant’s Big Secret and 19 other fantastic fables

This cheerful collection contains 20 fantastic animal fables, each of which includes valuable wisdom for children in a unique way and how values can be applied in everyday life.

Donkey’s Long Walk to Town conveys the message that one can never satisfy everyone. Bat, Bramble and Seagull Have a Meeting contributes to the idea that rather than only focussing on what you lack you should appreciate what you have. In Gnat Takes On Lion, the wisdom is shared that no one is so invincible that you can never be defeated. Beetle Puts Eagle in His Place shows that, given the courage, even if you are small there is always a way to stand up to a bully. These are just a few examples from this collection of gifted, shy, cheerful, scared, angry and brave animals.
