The Goddfool

The Godfool. Once there was a fool. He must have had a real name once, but the only name he knew, and the only thing he was called, was Fool….

Thus begins this thought-provoking folktale. The Godfool is not just a children’s book. It is a fable, a parable with a moral for all of us. The village Fool, who sleeps in Ma Beezle’s pig trough, comes to believe that he is also God. Though he is the butt of jokes and source of amusement for many who consider themselves superior to him, the Godfool has dipped into a deep well of wisdom, compassion and humanity. His story may inspire others to learn from his simple kindness and faith.
