This is how I look when when I am sated.
When I fear death, this what I can become.
Would you stare or run away?
Al Ahram Al Arabi
A brilliant story … filled with lessons of will-power and the challenge and love of life in spite of difficulty.
A story of discovery and enchantment … about the challenge of free will and the human condition … that culminates in an instant of pure magic and revelation.
An engaging and quirky view of philosophy from the perspective of an unlikely sage: the Oriental Firebelly Toad.
Riley Ellis (Executive 20th Century Fox)
I have never read anything like it. This frog/toad story is more human than most of the people-centric tales I consider each day.
Firebelly illuminates and elucidates the ideas of being and freedom and caring. The story is enjoyable as a tale and mind-stretching as an allegory.
