Each story carries an element of easy feel-good factor finished with an open-ended conclusion.

An excerpt from “The Glorious Animal Kingdom” reads: “As the days passed, the flames got higher and stronger. And a day came when some animals were burnt and choked by the smoke. It was fast becoming a nightmare for the jungle animals. Many began to die and no one knew what to do.”
