In ‘The Old Boat’, there is a hole in the old boat, but he still
wants to visit the sea. On a rainy day, the old boat slips into
the sea, secretly. The more he goes into the sea; he swallows
more water until he is drawn down to the bottom. There, the
old boat is so fascinated by the things he sees at the bottom
of the sea, that he stays in that place.
In ‘Everyone Laughed’ a giraffe wants to drink some water
but the alligator laughs at his long legs, when he tries to
play in the jungle the monkey laughs at his tall figure, and
in the same way the reindeer laughs at his long neck. Things
carry on like this until one day the giraffe picks up a bird’s
nest which had fell and puts it back on the branches. Now
everyone is delighted and they thank the giraffe.
