A pleasant little book with five stories that could be reckoned parables or fables, including the story of John the Evangelist's repeated admonition, Children, love ye one another and the Buddhist story of the disconsolate mother who had lost her first-born asking the Buddha for a way to bring life back to her child and being asked to bring a mustard seed from every home that had not experienced death. Other stories concern diplomatic one-up-man-ship and learning by being thrown into the sea that riding a ship in a storm is not so bad. The last story has Truth donning some of Parable's lovely garments for the truth is that men cannot face Truth naked; they much prefer him disguised.
