Little Wave and Old Swell: A Fable of Life and Its Passing

Join the impetuous Little Wave and his teacher, Old Swell, on a journey across the sea. These metaphorical adventures encourage readers to question the nature of life and death. Little Wave's ultimate discovery that he is not composed of water, but rather of energy, illustrates the truth that humans too are more than just physical forms. This timeless tale takes its place with many classic and engaging parables such as The Little Prince and Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
