Once upon a time, in a far away kingdom, there lived a small creature known as Scrawk. Everyone in the kingdom was scared of him because he looked so different. He had a long thin body, black scaly skin, and beady yellow eyes.
Scrawk lived on the outskirts of town, and hardly ever ventured near the people of the kingdom. He was happy in his own little world, content to wander in the forest hunting for food.
One day, however, a young prince stumbled across Scrawk in the forest. The prince was amazed by the strange creature and decided to make friends with him. He brought Scrawk back to the castle and everyone in the kingdom was curious about him.
The young prince gave Scrawk a room in the castle and treated him like a royal guest. Everyone was still scared of him, but eventually they realized that Scrawk was kind, gentle and very intelligent.
Scrawk became an important member of the kingdom, teaching them about the plants in the forest and helping them build things from the natural materials in the woods. He also taught the people how to live in harmony with the animals and plants.
The people of the kingdom were very grateful for all that Scrawk had done for them and they honored him with a grand feast. Everyone was happy and Scrawk felt welcomed and appreciated.
The moral of this story is that you don’t have to look like everyone else to be loved and appreciated. Everyone has something special to offer and no one should ever be judged by their appearances.
