The Walrus Who Escaped
One day, a Raven saw the Walrus dive down and get all the clams. She wanted some clams too, so when the tide was low she searched in the mud, but they always tasted like mud. So she was jealous of the Walrus, and she summoned all her strength to freeze the water, so the Walrus got stuck. But just in time the Walrus got his head above the water, but his tusks were still stuck. She was being really rude and teasing him and tickling him with her tail feathers, and she invited all the fish to come nibble on him. Finally the Walrus summoned all his strength to pull himself out of the water, and he pulled so hard he pulled his tusks out and they became straight instead of curly.
I liked the pictures in this book but in the story the people were rude. My favorite picture was where the Walrus was mad, because his eyes were glowing red and it looked funny, kind of like my stuffed walrus (except its eyes aren’t red). The lesson from this story is to not fight over food and to not tease or get jealous.
