When author Peddar Panga was young, his parents and grandparents shared animal stories with him. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, these entertaining fables always came with lessons illustrating the universal truths of life.
Tales of the Mirrors gathers 50 such tales, rewritten with a modern audience in mind. Discover the dangers of living solely for your career in "The Royal Hyena Guard", where a hyena becomes so concerned with defending his pack's territory that he hurts those closest to him. Meet a raccoon carpenter on a campaign to cure work accidents - and a charismatic crab who fools a colony of ants.
Similar in tone to Aesop's fables and the stories of Jean de La Fontaine, Panga's stories explore personal discipline, security, the pursuit of happiness, mastery of fear, and healing. Most of all, they celebrate the enduring power of love.
Let Panga's tales sweep you away to a world where animals talk, feel, and act like humans. In doing so, they mirror the best and worst in ourselves, offering a chance to learn more about who we are and how we should act.
