From the back cover

"Grandfather and the Raven" is a delightful collection of life fables. They are distilled wisdom that warms you all the way down."  -- Jean Sullivan

George Polley's Grandfather stories are fables capable of teaching children -- and  not a few adults -- about the value of appreciating all living creatures, of the wisdom of being open-minded enough to seek solutions in unlikely places, of the rewards of working systematically towards your dreams, of the futility of bullying and aggression, and of the reassurance of a loving and harmonious environment in a world which tips all too often toward the arbitrary destruction of war.

As ever, George Polley recounts these near-legends in a voice which lulls and beguiles, and above all nudges us toward the world around us."

Suitable for children, YA and adults. 

Available in paperback from amazon.com, and Kindle from all Amazon websites.
