This book of stories is prepared as object lessons for middle level readers and young adults. In times like these: fraught with impediments that often cloud the ability to exercise genuine, logical decisions, young people need strong leadership guides that would facilitate their search for participating in their world. Often, the guile from persons who present themselves as paragons of virtue is packaged in not-so-obvious garb that encourages deception. These three stories dramatize the fact that different guises may similarly deceive. Therefore, from the various story characters, one may discern the influences wrought and how such may eventually affect the behaviors of others. From the story about the Tortoise, one may learn how intentions that may initially may appear honest or well-intentioned, may eventually turn sour, because of subsequent abuse of power or the taking of the human spirit for granted. In the story about Mr. Gabilan and Papa Mongoose, one should observe the dynamics of responsibility, and of the extent to which that may lead. The guile pursued should help the reader to note how one may unintentionally perform an act of doing something foolish. Finally, Donkey Strategy may demonstrate such crucial emotion as faith, determination, and hope, as well as the effort to overcome difficulties through persistence and honest grounding which develops to one becoming cool. Many of the pages have an optional “Paint Me” feature for children to finger paint the pages and create their own custom version of the book. Additional features: Professional voice over, table of contents control to navigate easily through the book and an audio on/off control.
