Fable re-tellings + Christian expositions
The Boy Who Shouted “Wolf!” But There Wasn’t A Wolf and Other Tales brings together more of Geoffrey Thomas’s short stories, each brimming with the big heartedness, warmth and homespun humour that he is known for.
From both the ancient and modern world, Geoffrey Thomas introduces a host of extraordinary characters in his fantastical tales based on Aesop’s fables: a slave escapes death in the lion’s den; a donkey and a dog compete for attention; the sun and the wind battle to see who’s stronger.

1) Belling the Cat
2) The Boy who Shouted "Wolf!" But There Wasn't a Wolf
3) Androcles and the Lion
4) The Donkey and the Dachshund
5) The Cowardly Cat
6) The Battle Between the Sun and the East Wind
7) To Live as a Swan or a Peacock You Must be Born as a Swan or a Peacock
8) The Last Days of the Old Lion
9) The Donkey and the Statue
10) The Bundle of Sticks
Perfect for both Middle Grade and Young Adult readers and teeming with gospel truth and encouragement, Thomas’s stories are a delight. Ages 9 - 12.
