Nathaniel Leonard Jr. was born in 1974 and raised in the city of Chicago, Illinois and is the father of 13 children. A lover of animals and natural scenery, Nathaniel left Chicago searching for fulfillment and in 2000, peace and inspiration was found in the great state of Minnesota where he began his writing career.

.....this is the 10,000 Lakes Tales mantra, and each book starts out with this welcoming statement to get your mind ready to read about those familiar characters which many will come to know and love.

Many books use lines like, once upon a time, or in a place far away, but in most cases, this is not Original.

“You are a mental victim of all your influences, that's why they group you by association.”
William D. Writer, Foster Fox

“What matters is only what’s here. I touch my skin right under my breasts, which is where the little one’s curled, and where he kicks, ‘cause he has to. Like, he don’t feel so cosy no more. Here, can you feel it? I reckon he wants me to talk to him. He can hear me inside, for sure. He can hear every note of this silvery music.
It ripples all around him, wave after wave. I can tell that it’s starting to sooth him. It’s so full of joy, of delight, even if to him, it’s coming across somewhat muffled. Like a dream in a dream, it’s floating inside, into his soft, tender ear.
I close my eyes and hold myself, wrapping my arms real soft—around me around him—and I rock ever so gently, back and forth, back and forth, with every note of this silvery marvel. You can barely hear me—but here I am, singing along. I’m whispering words into myself, into him.”
Uvi Poznansky

William Writer Here is another review from a reader.

Nathaniel Leonard does a wonderful job creating a story similar to a modern day Rudyard Kipling tale.

Despite being only 27 pages, the story contains quite a bit of depth. Where on the surface it appears to be only about a displaced and lonely young fox, several sub-stories are brought into focus: from the creation of the jackal pack to the bird population's plot to take over.

I would recommend this book as the perfect bed-time story for a child between the ages of 4 – 8. And I myself also feel that it’d make a wonderful half an hour cartoon.

Jerrice Owens.


William Writer Here is a review from a reader of this book.

Rosalind Butler

THIS STORY HAD ME ENTERTAINED FROM THE FIRST PAGE. I LOVE THE WAY IT SHOWED THAT EVERY CREATURE UNDER THE SUN HAD A PLACE IN THERE FORREST WORLD. IT TEACHES YOU THE HISTORY OF THE ELDERS AND HOW THEY COME TO HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT FROM ALL OF THE CREATURES OF THE FORREST. IT WILL TEACH ABOUT THE RESPECT THAT OUR ELDERS EARNED AND DESERVE FROM ALL OF US,BECAUSE THEY MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR THE FOR THE ONES THAT CAME AFTER THEM TO LIVE IN THE FORREST IN PEACE. I LOVE THE WAY THE STORY FLOWED AND NEVER WAIVER FROM THE POINT OF THE STORY. WHAT I GOT FROM THIS STORY IT SHOWED HOW IMPORTANT EVERYONE IS AND HOW YOU HAVE MAKE A POINT TO SHOW THAT WE ALL NEED EACH OTHER TO SURVIVE IN THIS WORLD TOGETHER.CANT WAIT TO READ IT TO MY GRANDCHILDREN!
