Big Brave Elephant

(children`s fairytale)

A lone elephant wandered the forest looking for friends. He came across a monkey and asked, “Will you be my friend, monkey?” “You are too big and cannot swing on trees as I do. So I cannot be your friend,” said the monkey.

The elephant came across a rabbit and asked him if  he could be his friend. “You are too big to fit inside my burrow. You cannot be my friend,” replied the rabbit.

Then the elephant met a frog and asked if she could be his friend. The frog said, “You are too big and heavy. You cannot jump like me. I am sorry, but you cannot be my friend.”

The elephant asked a fox, and he got the same reply, that he was too big. The next day, all the animals in the forest were running in fear. The elephant stopped a rabbit and asked what was happening. The little rabbit told that a tiger had been attacking all the animals.

The brave elephant wanted to save the other weak animals and went to the tiger and said, “Please, striped kitty, leave my friends alone. Do not approach them.” The tiger saw that the elephant was bigger than he was and obeyed the big beast.

The elephant went back to the others and told them what happened. On hearing how the elephant saved their lives, the animals exclaimed in unison, “You are just the right size to be our friend.”
