When my children were young, we struggled to find them reading material that we agreed with. While finding stories with beautiful illustrations wasn’t difficult, unfortunately the same couldn’t be said for the texts. They all seemed to rely on predictable stereotypes and narratives intended to encourage conformity to the dominant belief systems. Evil witches with asymmetrical facial features and, god forbid, moles on their noses, trolls dragging their oversized feet, pretty princesses, handsome princes. Yay aristocracies! Yay equating blemishes and disabilities with villainy!
One of my friends, faced with this reality, went so far as to go through all of her kid’s books with white-out and erased whatever she considered offensive and problematic. She replaced the words with her own, creating stories that reflected her ecologically minded and feminist outlook. DIY and direct action combined!
The fact is there aren’t very many children’s books written by and for the anarchic parent and child. So I was really pleased when I received a copy of “The Wolves and the Giant Pine Trees”, a wonderful children’s book from Noel Regachuelo.
This is the story of a small village, The Village of No Fear, peacefully going about its daily routines while forgetting its reliance on the local forest for the materials that give it its crafts and building materials and firewood until there is a crisis. It is disarming in its simplicity, yet contains a depth that makes it a fable for modern times: the angry wolves will want to reckon with us if we don’t use our shared habitats wisely.
The story is exciting and moves along swiftly, reflecting the authors natural storytelling abilities.
The colorful illustrations, also by the author, are dreamy and minimalist in the best child-friendly sense with a spontaneity that makes me feel like I have just watched the illustrator paint them.
Noel Regachuelo is a father and anarchist eco-activist born and raised in the Philippines. He maintains the Greenhouse info shop project. He is a cyclist, artist and community organizer.

The trip was completed, there are changed of plans and route because of tropical depressions & typhoon in Philippines but the bikepacking trip was pretty amazing! A group of cycling advocate called the FIREFLY BRIGADE contacted me in the first week of October 2018, and they will be having the 1st Salubungan Bicycle Ride: The Tour of The Fireflies. The bicycle tour will starts From Baguio City Philippines up to Davao City, with 1800 kilometer distance. They arrive here in Naga City last November 20, 2018. I suggested to them that we will going to guide their trip from Naga City to Legazpi City as bike marshals. The trip from Naga City to Legazpi City is 100 kilometer. The trip runs well, flats tires are normal for cycling tours. When we touched down in Legazpi, some cycling friends welcomes us. We talked about their advocacies, i also shared my thoughts and advocacies here in Naga City. We stayed at Sampaguita Tourist Inn, A hotel in Legazpi City. The trip was amazing! The flat tires, rains, colds and stomach aches is a hell of a challenge but the most important thing is we meet new friends, shared stories and adventures. Thank you tim!
