      Billibonk and the Thorn Patch is a compelling story that is bound to appeal to readers of all ages. In this engaging fable, Billibonk the elephant and his friends discover the interdependent nature of life in the jungle of Knith.

No fable is complete without a moral...and this fable has many. Key lessons featured in the story include: - understanding mutual interdependencies - focusing on the long-term view - getting to the root of the problem - recognizing our own role in difficult situations Join Billibonk and the rest of the Knith gang in their jouney of discovery--but beware what may be lurking in the thorn patch!
