Despite being a truly unforgettable children’s tale, this is one you’ll want to dust off several times a year to read and re-read to your kids. No doubt, when they’re old enough, they’ll perform this happy task for themselves. I dare say, if as the author demonstrates, adults could embody the lessons in this book the world would be a far better place. Consider this one of the best investments you can make for the world we’d like our children to live in by encouraging our kids to master what we often couldn’t. Oh, and while I was never a huge meat eater, I have to say, after reading this, I’m officially off the stuff. Now that I’ve come to understand our animal friends offer us far more by appealing to our hearts instead of our mouths!

When I first saw this book, I thought the cover looked a bit like an issue of Watchtower and wondered if it would be a story with a heavy religious message. But then I read the reviews, learned that the book was a humanistic and not a religious allegory, and decided to take a closer look.

I'm glad I did. This book is an absolute gem. The message is simple, timeless and inarguable - people crave fame, fortune and power, but what really matters and makes people truly happy is the company and love of family and friends.

If the message can be stated so easily in a single sentence, why bother to read the book? Because it's a compelling, beautifully written and perfectly crafted work of 'proper' literature and one of those books where, once you start reading, you have to drop everything else to carry on to the end.

The stated age range says 6 to 8, but I'd say 6 to infinity as it has the same universal appeal as, say, a fairy tale like Oscar Wilde's 'The Selfish Giant'.

Thoroughly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lessons about the importance of friendship and loyalty 16 Mar. 2016
By Rhea M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a well written, engaging short story about a boy who had nothing in the world, but ended up having more than anyone could have imagined. I love the creative way the author teaches a valuable lesson about the importance of friendship and loyalty through "Boy's" life, and the choices that the character makes. I really enjoyed this and think it would be especially useful to read to students when studying short stories in an elementary school setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book is a Great Blessing 13 Aug. 2014
By Gayleonthego - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First, for those who complain about poor grammar, spelling, style or other editing errors in many Kindle books, I want to assure you that you will find this book is well written and it will not disturb your sensibilities.

Second, I am a 62 year old grandmother and retired teacher. I must say this is the best children's story I have read in a very long time. I recommend it for ages 5-99+. It is a wonderful written and illustrated book to be read to children by their loving parents, grandparents, siblings, caregivers and teachers. And then to be read by the grown children to their children for many generations.

In my opinion, it is a great morality tale in the tradition of the best of morality tales. I applaud and thank the author (Mark Issacs), the illustrator (James Balkovek), the publisher (Lampglow Books) and the editor (if any) for this gift, that should become timeless if there is any fairness in the literary world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, Wise Tale 18 Nov. 2014
By Future Boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One would think that there is a limited number of fables and wise tales in this world. After all, Aesop existed and told stories of love and wisdom thousands of years ago. Then along comes a unique story like this, which masterfully places three demi-gods into the positions of fame, fortune, and power. This is the first time I have read about this.

Save for some awkward sentences in the first chapter, the book is well-written and almost poetic. Indeed, it is well-adapted to the lexicon of old-age fable telling.

Well done, and a very wise tale with morals that we all should keep in mind as guiding principles. I also enjoyed the many illustrations, which also go very well with what we remember from fables. I remember as a child having a coffee table book of Aesop's Fables with one woodcut illustration in black and white for every fable. This makes me think of this.
