The Fighting Cocks and the Eagle

“That’s it!” Black Cock crowed to himself when he spotted Red Cock flirting with the hens again. “I’ve had it with that impudent cock. This is my farmyard, not his!”



Fables



Armadillo's Song

There once lived an armadillo who loved music more than anything else in the world. After every rainfall, the armadillo would drag his shell over to the large pond filled with frogs and he would listen to the big green frogs singing back and forth, back and forth to each other in the most amazing voices.

The Cock and the Pearl

Scratch. Scratch. Peck. Cock was strutting around the yard, busily looking for good things to eat. Peck, peck scratch. He gobbled down a piece of barley-corn with greedy satisfaction. Yum!

The Fighting Cocks and the Eagle

“That’s it!” Black Cock crowed to himself when he spotted Red Cock flirting with the hens again. “I’ve had it with that impudent cock. This is my farmyard, not his!”

The Lion and the Beetle

King Lion was a very proud, very vain lion. He loved to stomp around the savannah, roaring and growling whenever he saw his animal subjects - Giraffe or Hyena or Elephant or Gazelle or Ape - to show what a mighty lion he was.
