The Treasure

Quick review.

Review: 

Odd. A folk tale, I guess? A man dreams about a treasure, goes to find it, and finds someone who dreamed treasure was in the first man's house, then he goes home and finds the treasure. No metaphor.

Message: 

Dreams are prophetic.

Nothing At All

Subheader: 

Quick review.

Review: 

Odd. Three puppies in kennels out in the middle of nowhere for no reason. One puppy is invisible. The other two are adopted by a boy and a girl, and the invisible one tries to follow but gets lost, then a jackdaw helps him cast magic to become visible, then he joins his brothers.

Message: 

Being invisible is difficult.

Andy and the Lion

September 22, 2016
Subheader: 

Quick review.

Review: 

Odd. Seems loosely based on "Androcles and the Lion" fable. About a kid who reads a book about lions from the library and then meets a real lion and removes a thorn from its paw, then it turns out to be in the circus? And it escapes, and almost eats Andy but recognizes him, and he gets a parade and medal for bravery. Page breaks in weird places.

Message: 

Help people and they might help you back.
