TEASER, whole fable in book
klik hier voor Nederlands
* His house was just a small one because mostly he was on the road, he travelled a lot. The ladybug, you know, was asked everywhere to show his skills. He was very good at moving to music. When music was heard and the ladybug moved to it, it generated emotions in the spectators, even more so than when they were just listening.
“Hi ladybug”, said the dragonfly.
“Hello there”, said the ladybug and warmly gave the dragonfly two kisses. The dragonfly blushed all over.
“You know,” said the dragonfly, “I never dared to say this, but often I can’t help but cry when I see you move to music.”
The dragonfly gasped for breath. This was quite a long sentence for someone who actually did not dare to talk to the ladybug because he always touched her so much.
…The ladybug was home again.

You can continue reading in my book with fables that is published by BoekScout and can be found in their webshop.
The book is bilingual: Dutch-English and is titled:
HOE HET ZO GEKOMEN IS / HOW IT ALL CAME TO BE
psychologische fabels / psychological fables
*As in all fables, the stories mirror human behaviour. Through the animals’ characters, we actually look at ourselves and our society. The fables are contemplative, yet vivid and quite humorous.*
