How the First Letter Was Written
Free Gift

This fantastical story tells the origin of the first letter. Our heroine Taffimai sends a picture message to her mother, and sufficiently confuses her entire tribe. Hilarity, as fans of Kipling are well aware, ensues. Beautifully illustrated by Alex Citrin, this short story offers a life lesson on the importance of clarity in communication and Humanity's need to invent the letter.
