The Flying Orange travels around the world, observes how human beings behave, and listens to stories of quarrels and unfriendliness. Even when they are doing something so simple as sharing an orange. But some humans are more capable of doing it, and the smartest among them have many and good solutions to the problem. Learn from them and be wiser than many politicians.
This is the tale of the Flying Orange, as retold by Johan Galtung, and illustrated by Andreas Galtung. A tale to learn from, whether you are small or big, and particularly suitable for children to read for their parents at bedtime, so they can have better dreams.
