Here is a collection of short stories: some of which are real; some are taken from the universal popular folklore; some are from the Jewish folklore while others are taken from famous books of allegorical stories like:
Cathy Books. Animal Fairy Stories.
La Fontaine. Les Fables.
Uncle Arthur’s Bedtime Stories.
I have tried to give these symbolic stories a Christian spiritual touch.
