The Mysterious Animal

A myth submitted to the site by Laura Hajnal (8y)

Village, India

Once upon a time there was a carpenter. He was living in a small cottage in a little village. Next to the village was a big forest with lots of animals. The man was very talented in making wooden figures. Every free time he spent on making another beautiful little wooden creature. His cottage was already full of them.

One night he had a dream. In this dream he saw a mysterious animal he never saw before. When he woke up he decided to make a wooden figure just like the one he saw in his dream. The mysterious animal was looking like a unicorn. But this unicorn had wings. When he finished his craft he put it on the shelf next to the other figures. He was so much tired after that he went to bed soon.

In the middle of the night he woke up due to some strange noise coming from his workshop. He jumped out of his bed and dressed up as quick as a flash. Then he ran into his workshop. He could not believe what he saw. First he though is still dreaming. The mysterious animal somehow became alive. It was flying around his workshop, changing its colors and casts spells on the other wooden figures so that they turned to live too. The monkeys he has made before were climbing and jumping on the shelves and were making the biggest mess. All night long the animals were playing and the carpenter was very happy while watching them play.

After some time he was so much tired that he fell asleep. When he woke up, it was already very late the next day, his figures were wooden again. But the mysterious animal was not between them. He spent all his time to find it but he couldn’t. So his figures never came to live again.
