A Word of Warning!
Let’s get a few things straight up front. To start with, the name’s Lipssealed. Lockjaw Lipssealed. Okay, Lockjaw I.N.T. Lipssealed, but that’s not important. I’m a storyteller and yeah, I’m a fairy Godfather, but before you start making cracks, let me tell you about the last smart mouth who tried that. Actually, I can’t tell you about the last guy, ‘cause the judge slapped a gag order on me. Point is, just don’t try it.
Anyway, the story you’re about to read is true or my name’s not Lockjaw Lipssealed. No names were changed to protect the innocent, ‘cause there aren’t any. The story is what it is. Call it a fairytale if you want, but that don’t change the fact that it all happened if I say it did.
Besides, who’s telling the story!

I've read this marvelous tale several times and the thought I'm always left with is "BRILLIANT!!" THE TALK is like nothing I've seen before, packed with humor and serious content in equal measure (although the serious part is cleverly disguised). I don't usually consider discussing the narrative voice in literature, but it deserves consideration here. There is a truly unique rhythm to this story, one that's subtle brilliance reveals itself repeatedly throughout. The narration quickly develops into a "voice" that seems to stand outside of ones mind, as though one is being spoken to by a talented storyteller who is also a delightful friend. I don't wish to give anything away. The story is a pleasure to read and more so if you have been allowed to discover it on your own. I'll just close with the suggestion that you immediately make time in your day to get started! An excellent read, and a pleasure to come back to, over and over. Once you've finished, you'll feel as though you've made a new and wonderful friend.
