Darn. I forgot to say I love your artwork too. It's been jumping out at me lately. Multi talented. And I forgot (too many distractions here sometimes with 3 dogs demanding dinner) to say I'm glad Albert learned to read and write and save the day!

A great story, Brian. Another one I could read to my grand---d'oh! I forgot I don't have any. I really have to talk to those kids. But I loved it all the same.

Great story, Brian. My only qualm was the king's advisor's appearance. Must we despise all dark haired, pale faced men for eternity?! Severus Snape, Wormtongue, Jafar, Loki, the list goes on. Is there some historical significance to this? Are pale, dark-haired people just inherently evil because they don't get enough vitamin D? Perhaps you were just staying true to the spirit of fables past. But man, I'd love to see a blond, blue-eyed, rosy cheeked villain in a story like this someday. You have my blessing to write it. 😊

I am not well-versed in the land of fables, so this was a different kind of read for me. Thanks for expanding my reading horizons! And great artwork at the beginning too!
