BC: The End
FC: Who Is King Of The Forest? A Tale From India [www.storyarts.org Story Library] | Creation: Student Authored Folktale
1: Ode to 398.2 by Heather Forest I've traveled around the world without leaving home. I go anywhere my imagination wants to roam. I take a look, in a folktale book, and travel on the wings of words. Soaring to far away places, ancient times, or magical spaces, I find a fantasy view... reading a book from the library shelf marked 398.2
2: When Tiger jumped on Fox, Fox cried out, "How dare you attack the King of the Jungle!" Tiger looked at him in amazement, "Nonsense! You are not King!"
4: "Certainly I am," replied Fox, "All the animals run from me in terror! If you want proof, come with me." Fox went into the forest with Tiger at his heels.
6: When they came to a herd of deer, the deer saw Tiger behind Fox and ran in all directions.
8: They came to a group of monkeys. The monkeys saw Tiger behind Fox and they fled. Fox turned to Tiger and said, "Do you need more proof than that? See how the animals flee at the very sight me?!"
10: "I'm surprised, but I've seen it with my own eyes. Forgive me for attacking you, Great King." Tiger bowed low and with great ceremony he let Fox go.
