The Elephant and the Butterfly

A Fable for Youngsters

by A. Richards

Overview

There's something different about Babla. 

1. He's an elephant.

2. He can't stand.

With what may be seen as an unfortunate lack of strength begins a fable about the power we hold inside ourselves—and how a little encouragement can go a long way. 

Description

Babla the elephant is left alone on the plain since he can’t stand on his own. He is approached by several jungle animals, each with a purpose or motive. Through these interactions he learns that—with a little hope and help—he can survive the Law of the Jungle after all. 

Any child—or any one—who has ever felt "different" will fall head over heels for Babla.
