Facts of Life Book 18 – Life Isn’t Fair

There once was a man who went bankrupt. He created and drew cartoons for a living. A certain cartoon studio virtually forced him to give up his rights to a very popular character that he created: Oswald the Rabbit. As a result, he lost everything. He lost everything and the studio continued to make money off of his cartoon. It wasn’t fair, but he didn’t give up. He kept looking for another way: a year later he found one. With some help from his brother, he created a new character and eventually added sound to his creation. The man was Walter Elias Disney and his new creation was Mickey Mouse. Perhaps you know him better as Walt Disney.

Now, take a minute to think about what life would be like if he had chosen to give up on his dreams just because he came across an obstacle. Just because life isn’t always fair.

The ARISE Facts of Life series is a library of 31 valuable little life skills books guaranteed to motivate and sustain change in the lives of the youth who read them. Stories with positive values, illustrated with appealing cartoons. Easy Reading!
