FEATHERS AND FUR: Tales from the Animal Kingdom - April 2019 - Table of Contents

Enchanted Conversation
presents the
April 2019 Issue
Tales from
the Animal Kingdom
Animals have played important roles in fairy tales, folktales, and myths throughout the ages. In countless tales, they have helped humans, tricked them for their own purposes or provided inspiration for a hero/heroine to achieve their goals. They also reflect different aspects of our own humanity, from the gentle and nurturing, to the aggressive and primal. Sometimes their stories are tragic, but also intensely beautiful as they portray the wild and unpredictable aspects of nature.

In this issue, ten authors will enchant you with their original tales set in a variety of locations around the world, featuring a variety of animals - from foxes and wolves, to herons, hares, panthers, and bees...and more! So, sit back and read some stories on this spring day, and we hope you enjoy your journey into the animal kingdom!

I hope it inspires you as much as it does me.
So, thank you, one and all. Your support means everything.
