The Triangle Man and the Flightless Diwata
Written by Kate Osias, Artworks by Dex Fernandez
One day, in the land of diwatas and fairies and strange new being arrived, the Triangle Man. He was different and the only one of his kind, so all the other diwatas made fun of him. He only had one friend, Amparo who was also different, she was a flightless diwata. Together they discover that being different is okay.
This is a story of two socially awkward beings who try to discover their niche in the world. In the end, what they discovered about themselves and about each other led to a very good friendship between them. The story uses much creativity to lay down the message of accepting one’s strengths and weaknesses first in order to accept others and the realities surrounding them.
Triangle Man and the Flightless Diwata won the 10th Romeo Forbes Children’s Story Writing Contest in 2013.
