Wing-Feather Fables: Fat Charley

Do you remember Fat Charley, the baker of Menagerie Square? The unfortunate soul, eaten by the Lion, just for being the bearer of bad tidings? In this fable, we return to the City with the Square and find out how Fat Charley is faring in the after-life.

Fat Charley was a ghost, and Fat Charley was unhappy. He slumped beside the polar bear, the only living creature who could see him. Alive, he’d been a baker, famous for confections shaped like monkeys, wildebeests and capybaras, pangolins and zebras. In the City of the lion and the magician, Fat Charley made the lion’s favorites, cream-filled donuts, dusted with the finest cinnamon.
