The Kind Snakeby Joanne Liu
ABOUT THE ART
November of a 2014 calendar series
On a freezing cold winter's day, some forest animals were stranded in a snowstorm. As it got colder and darker, they stumbled upon a hibernating snake, sleeping with his mouth wide open! They were a bit scared, but it looked so warm and toasty inside the snake’s tummy. Nervously, they decided to crawl inside... and there they stayed for the whole winter!
The snake DID wake up once in December, but he pretended to sleep, and he didn’t digest them. When spring finally came, all the animals climbed out and they repaid the kind snake by leaving him some fresh baked cookies.
