Overview

A modern fable. A RYO Reading Group Classic.

How does a mango hanging from a high limb of a lakeside branch fulfill its desire to be a Big Tree on a prized plot of land? It has no hands to do its bidding, no mouth to shout its calling, and no feet to find a way through this place with plans for far less trees.

Here is storytelling in the beautiful traditions of Lord Of The Flies, Treasure Island, and The Alchemist. Explore Amora. Discover the essentials of a worthy dream. Accompany Little Mango to the soul of desire. Experiment with Palu's pellucola.

In this swift, stimulating, occasionally sensual, quite often humorous journey along life's treacherous arc, find the secret to an immortal legacy. While you laugh, learn the art of being irresistible. A mango can. Shouldn't you?

Listen to nature's rhythms. The kiskadee sings. Miss Aénna sings. Noel howls in his innocence. Trees dance. Wallupadoopap sings the truth. Even if you lose a tear here and there, you'll sing. You'll probably shake something too; just don't shoot the pig.

If you've ever shelved a dream, or given up; if you have a dream; if you think it's too late to dream; if you have no reason to dream whatsoever; this is our gift to you.

If you are building a legacy, or wished you did; if you built a legacy to last more than three days past your last breath; if you haven't a prayer in Choca-Mocha of having any legacy whatsoever; give this gift to yourself. You are worth something, we think.

So, how does a little mango, against all odds, achieve its dream of being a Big Mango Tree? You'll find that in this easy read. If you're looking to be a superhero instead, well, that's in here too. Besides, these times are calling for a fresh view. Here's a window.

Enjoy.
