Without Fear –by Vincent Alma
Fiction / Teaching Parable

This is not a novel, it is a well-written short story about a farmer who desires above all else to become a knight, and how he goes about attaining that goal, and how it changes his life.
Our hero goes through many trials and tribulations, he first must recognize his enemy and then defeat him as he learns his many lessons. This story could be considered a fable, a fairy tale, or a parable. Perhaps a series of parables within the story as there are several lessons to be learned.
It would make a great manga, or a great illustrated children's book. Although written so children can read and understand it, adults will also enjoy reading it. A perfect book for adults and children to read together and discuss the various lessons our hero learns, how they affect him, and how we might be affected as we learn.
