Once upon a time, in a tiny village tucked away on the edge of a dense and mysterious forest, lived a small but happy family. The family was comprised of two parents, a daughter named Alice, and a son named John. John and Alice were always best friends, they would often take long walks through the forest together, discovering strange and wonderful things hidden deep among the trees and undergrowth.

One day Alice and John were out exploring their favorite area of the forest, and they stumbled upon a strange little creature. The creature had large ears, a round nose and huge eyes and was standing atop a large tree root. It stared down at the two children, and then, to their great surprise, it began to scranch.

The children had never seen, or heard, such a thing before, and when the scranching stopped, curiosity got the better of them and they decided to take the creature home to meet their parents.

The creature was given the name ‘Scranch’, and he quickly became a member of the family. He had a remarkable ability to understand human speech, and he was often the source of great entertainment. Scranch was a great listener, and he always seemed to know exactly what the family needed.

One day, the family were in need of some money to pay for their bills, so John decided to put Scranch’s extraordinary talent to the test. He asked Scranch to bring them some money, and he was amazed by what happened next.

Scranch brought them a large bag full of gold coins, and from then on, the family never had a money problem again.

The years passed and Scranch became a beloved member of the family. He was always there when someone was feeling down, and he was ready with a good joke or two when things were going a bit too serious.

John and Alice were now grown up, and Scranch had become an old but loyal pet. Even though he was getting on in years, his spirit and enthusiasm were still alive and well.

One day, John and Alice decided to take Scranch back to the same spot in the forest where they had found him. They wanted him to experience one last adventure in his favourite place.

When they arrived at the spot, they were surprised to find a large group of creatures from all over the forest. They were all gathered around a large tree root.

It turns out, Scranch had been teaching them about the strange and wonderful things that can be found if you just take the time to look and listen.

The moral of the story is to always take the time to look around and to be open to new experiences. By taking risks and trying something new you can find amazing things in the most unlikely places. You may even find a creature like Scranch whose wisdom can enrich your life and make you a better person.
