The playful rays of sun peek between the large, flat green leaves of the towering trees. The young boy rubs his eyes and sits straight up. The first thing he sees is the slumbering black, muscled panther curled up peacefully next to him. His friend, an enormous brown bear, has just returned with some bananas for the boy’s breakfast. As he eats, the boy imagines what adventures he and his friends will have that day. Perhaps they will meet their good friend the python. Maybe he will return to the cave where he grew up and visit his brother wolves. He hopes they will not meet the fierce tiger that longs to kill him. The young boy finishes his breakfast and smiles to himself. He loves his life in the jungle.
