First of all, I am atheist. This story is not faith based, but takes place during winter holiday time. I got an idea for a story featuring my dog. As I thought more & fleshed it out more, I realized it had a lesson to teach. Ultimately, the lesson is that when you bring a pet into your home, it is part of the family. I see the story more of a 'family lesson', rather than a child's book lesson, but would work either way. Now my question is: Have you ever seen a commercially viable book be sold, using the same story while changing the faith of the holiday taking place in the house? There are no religious/cultural things that will bother anyone except fundamentalists, but they ain't buyin', so I don't care about 'em. The images of the insides of the houses would be what is changed. Basically, homogenized christian, jewish, muslim, families in a middle class setting.
