Narrator: It was a sunny day in the town Pudding but no one could see it. There was a cloud in the way of the sun.
Boy: I can’t see anything!
The mayor: We must do something!
All: But what?
Town folks: Ask the king!
Mayor: Not the king!
Boy: That is a good idea.
Mayor: The king does not rule the skies.
Narrator: So, everybody thought €¦
Boy: We could ask the wind to blow the dark cloud away.
Town folks: Good idea!
Boy: Could you blow the cloud away?
Wind: If the king lets me blow down whatever I want.
Mayor: I’ll go ask the king.
Narrator: The mayor reluctantly goes to the king’s palace. He tells the king what the wind wants. The king agrees to the plan. So the wind blew the cloud away. But from that day on the wind blew things down.
Virginia is 10 yrs old and she wrote this for school. She likes reading. Her favorite thing to read is a series of books called Warriors, by Erin Hunter. She likes catching fireflies, too.

This is a wonderful fable about the wind. It also shows the wind listening to the king, which might, in a way, suggest that people and nature were more unified. It reminds me a little bit of a Books of Bayern series that Shannon Hale wrote, where some people knew the languages of wind and fire and water.
Thanks for the post, Virginia! I like it a lot. I like the Warriors series, too!
Wonderful! And I’d like to live in a town called Pudding! Great little fable!
