The sunset of red and orange glowed
peacefully over the valley. A small
village lay quietly and soundly in the
late evening sun. An owl's hoot in
the distant, far to the north lies a

lion, owl, mouse, and monkey know him
well. And late next morning they stand
around his hut waiting for him to emerge
and greet them in the peaceful morning...
