Comments on a Young Author

John Scalzi has written a fine annotation of a young author's illustrated children's tale:

What the author is saying is that while we need to integrate the lessons of nature, we are also more than what is given to us in our natural state. When nature fails or flags -- as it inevitably must -- our other talents must engage until such time as our natural states are refreshed again. A telling message for young women: Know who you are and be in touch with your nature, but be ready to use all the resources available to you, in all aspects of your life.
Read the original story and the rest of Scalzi's commentary.
