The Tails of Ae’tann: A Sunset Story is a richly illustrated full color hardcover book that tells the tale of Red, Olive and Ollie – three puppies eagerly waiting to be born – and follows them on a grand journey filled with excitement, danger and discovery which arises when they make a silly decision that leads to tragic and unintended consequences.
There are two levels to our story; the first being a fast paced exciting adventure that explores the underlying themes of courage and belonging, the importance of living for the moment, and how animals and humans share a special bond. We really hope that everyone will enjoy the main story as it unfolds across the lands of Ae’tann and this world that we live in.
But on another level, we built in a special treat for those who love myths and legends, and the mysteries of old. The book references and interweaves mythology and tales of the past into the story.
Look out for elements of Norse, German, Jewish, Japanese, Chinese, and Classical myths and tales, amongst others. One fun thing you could try and do – spot all the “Easter eggs” and references we have made throughout the book. If you can’t, don’t worry! It won’t detract from your enjoyment of the story. But for those who can, it’ll make for some additional fun. This might help you introduce yourself – and your children – to the rich heritage of world mythology!
