The Hovering Elephant

14 pages6 minutes


A story for children of all ages with a strong moral ethic to it. The story is about an African witch-doctor whose favorite walking stick breaks when it gets stuck in the mud. He gets so angry about this that he says some bad swear words as he hurls the broken stick up into the air, so that once the stick lands it becomes enchanted and causes all sorts of problems in the Kingdom of Modjadgi the Rain Queen, where all the animals in the story all live.
There are no actual swear words in the story, but the message is that if you swear and think mean thoughts, you could just cause the same sort of problems to occur in your own world, which would be a terrible shame.
