TEASER, whole fable in book

klik hier voor Nederlands



About once a year, the eel came unannounced to the animal forest to reconnect with old acquaintances. He came disguised, like every year, and this time he was dressed up as the cockatoo. The eel did not know that the cockatoo had been there on a holiday a while ago and had frequently come back after that.
“Hi cockatoo”, said the sheep.
“Hi sheep”, cockatooed the eel and immediately slid away. To delay for as long as possible that he would be unmasked, he made sure his chats were as brief as possible.
“How are you doing?”, said the frog, who was always interested in everybody and everything.
“Ah”, said the eel and then kept his mouth shut.
The frog jumped away again. Why stick around where there’s no fun.
“Hello there, cockatoo!”, called the butterfly from afar. “I was not expecting you till next week!”
“Yeah, right”, mumbled the eel, on guard, because the butterfly seemed to have friendly ties with the cockatoo. He quickly slithered away.

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:

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.*

  1. Anne & Marita! Enjoyable fable! You both do a good job. Of course, the giraffe is always my favorite. I like his comment about listening to the “ears of the heart”! Thanks!
