Kob the Antelope

This is a heartwarming illustrated children's story of a young foal who wanders away from his herd and gets tricked by a cunning hyena. Kob thinks hard, breaks free from the lair of his captor and reunites with his long lost family.

Wow! This story is so great. It took me back to some of the Grimm's Fairy Tales e.g. Hansel & Gretal. It really did its job and gave me the heebie jeebies. I was so relieved at the end when beautiful Kob found his Mother. I enjoyed the way you used external & internal voices so that the reader knows the hyena's motivations. Scary! I think it is so important for children to learn about the pitfalls of flattery - especially in the digital world that we live in. It's vital for them to know about & listen to that internal alarm or instinct that caused Kob to retaliate and escape. Brilliant.
