Two Animal Stories
A Wolf Learns About Himself & A Lion Learns Fairness
by Emanuel Burton

This book features two charming and insightful stories for young readers that ask questions we’ve all had to face. Should we ever change ourselves for the sake of others? Is equal always fair? And what does it mean to be yourself and love yourself despite the pressure of the outside world? All Softy the wolf wants is to fit in. But when he tries to change himself, he learns that it’s impossible to be something that you’re not. Softy will have to embrace his nature as a feared hunter—or risk losing himself completely. In Justice’s story, the king of the lions makes a decision based on the law, following what he thinks is right. But he learns that equal isn’t always fair, and that sometimes, the law has to change to fit not only the crime, but the criminal. These timeless stories ask their readers to have a good long think about what it means to do something before they act. The characters are sympathetic and the stories engage readers with lessons they can carry forward into their own lives.

Emanuel Burton was born in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1906. He was an ardent traveler, and by his late teens had already visited India, China, and Malaysia. He returned to Europe as an adult, where he worked as an administrator before meeting his wife. Together they moved to Brussels, where their first daughter was born. They soon relocated to France, where they had their second daughter and stayed happily until the Second World War. They fled occupation by relocating to New York City. There, Emanuel worked in his father’s business, raised his children, and read books of all kinds. In his free time, he wrote stories. Emanuel died in 1981.
