|dc.description.abstract||This book surprised me in several ways. First, it turns out not to be a traditional fable book. Secondly, it turns out to be a good contemporary probe of readers' values. In story after story among the eight told here, I found myself wondering where I was. This approach is strengthened, I believe, by the quoting, story after story, of those who would disagree with the Christian understanding of the story. This is good, provocative story-telling! For example, should duck change the sign just because he finds the hill to the pond had to climb? Should rabbit believe that the fox has come to enjoy the carrot-lunch rabbit plans to serve? Rather than solving the questions, these good stories raise them.||en_US|
