Very Detailed story here, and it took me a long time to read, but it was well worth it. To be honest though, my eyes are a bit sore from reading so much text from a screen, and I definitely have to take a break and just watch some other animations before I return to view book two. Once again, I am impressed by your gift for story telling, the story vaguely reminds me of a few of the Native American creation stories, but has a pretty unique flavor of its own. The drawing are well done, and although there wasn't much animation, the quality of the sroty more than made up for it. I watch so many cartoons and games here on Newgrounds, so thank you for reminding me of the subtle joys of reading a good story, which until today, I had not done for a couple of months, I'm going to check out some of your other animations before finishing the other two books, but I just wanted to say you did a nice job of this.

Thanks so much, man. I see you've been catching up quite a bit. To tell truth there are big parts of this story that falls apart, something I got a little better at but am still learning. Thnanks for all the great feedback as well.


That was simply amazing! Shame on the fools who do not read!
Fortunately for you, there are people on here that do still care for books.
I would love it if this was published, that way I could get the books for my neice and read them to her.
But yeah, newgrounds was simply made for porno and violence, so I think you should try to find something less degrading than NG.
Don't get me wrong, I like a good naked sex animation myself, because were all somewhat perverted like that, But I find that insulting a piece of artwork without first viewing it is one of the worst sins in my book.
Anyway, nice job and good luck.

A pleasing fairytale.

I hardly expected to find something like this at Newgrounds or any other flash site, for that matter. The story is humorous and touching. It would make a fine children's book. The writing is rough here and there, but good overall. I'm definitely going to read the other installments.


I hate to review things that I haven't completely finished, but I'm NOT going to read this. Reading is for the birds. Whenever I come to NG, I'm either thinking porn or violence. The LAST thing I think about is reading.

screw that last reviewer

Screw that last reviewer. This story reminded me a lot of The Finding Stone: A Modern Day Parable by Kristin Lore Webber. If you haven't read that book already, you should see if you can find a copy of it online. I know that she has it posted up on her website. This story reminded me a lot of the concept behind The Finding Stone.
