Story of the Month

  • A promise is a promise

    The storks never stop talking. This irritates the other animals terribly, especially the ostrich, who has misunderstood what they say about flying, and is angry with them. At last, all the animals go to the wise lizard for help. He gives them a spell to keep the storks’ beaks shut, but warns them that the spell will only last for three days. After three days, the animals, led by the ostrich, ensure that the storks never speak again – but this has an unplanned outcome for the ostrich!
