Product Overview

This book consists of three interconnected stories that deal with the importance of self-acceptance, quest for knowledge, love, and determination. Through the critical comic illustrations, "The Ugliest Animal in the World" reflects how the beauty industry uses media propaganda to influence and reshape children''s behavior and perception. A second story, "Newton Fangle of New Sense," satirizes the contemporary fascinations with technology and newness, innovation and time-saving efficiency at the expense of the simpler, more aesthetic and leisurely pleasures of life. The title story, "The Boy Who Wanted to Marry His Dog," outlines in a comic way the passion of love and brave determination one can use to realize his or her dream. In short, these stories provide young readers with valuable notions and inspirations for self-respect, pursuit of knowledge, innovation, love, and brave decision making. They are suitable for children ages six to ten.
