Overview

In this latest collection of beautifully illustrated, easy-to-read fables, Robert James Challenger continues to teach children practical, moral lessons about life in today's complicated world. Owl shows Grandson that a problem will only go away when each person involved becomes part of the solution. Little Mallard Duck finds out the hard way that things change over time, and that even when we think we are not ready, it may be time to move on. Steelhead Trout learns that instead of swimming away from those who are different, it is much better to respect their points of view and help them to understand our own.

All of Jim's books are perfect tools to teach children how to live in harmony with others and are widely used by parents and teachers to stimulate children to talk about their experiences. Conveying values of respect, cooperation and kindness, their wisdom and beauty will leave a lasting impression on readers young and old.
