HOW CHIPPY LOST HIS TAIL is an animal fable for children, young adults ( and older ones too) .
It's about a chipmunk who's so obsessed with his cell phone, he does actually lose his tail.
I wrote it as a reminder to busy people like myself, that no matter how much you have to do;
you need to stop; take time to relax; and take notice of the beauty that's all around you.
