There was a time when people could communicate with animals. A time when animals were teachers and friends and the cast of characters that populated favorite stories — humorous, serious, comedic and sad.

Lorrie Oshatz and Theresa May of Flights of Fantasy Story Theater brought a quartet of those animal stories from Native American tradition to life for a group of enthusiastic children Thursday, Nov. 9, at a Malibu Library show entitled “When Animals Were People.”
