One, two, and now three magic elephants had reported seeing a monster.
Everyone was scared.
So the magic elephants held a magic meeting.
In the meeting it was decided that the monster had to be caught.
And it had to be caught fast.
But how are we going to catch the monster? asked Tusk, a baby elephant.
Well, said The Queen Elephant, it is very difficult, because the monster is wearing a human suit. But all we have to do, is look in his eyes. If his eyes are shining bright, it is a human, full of love. But if his eyes are dark, it is a monster, full of evil.
Monsters are very clever, and deceive us by wearing sunglasses by day so we cannot see their eyes.
At night its eyes are exposed, but monsters hunt alone at night, and are difficult to be found.
We’ve got an idea, said the Stars. Would you like to hear it?
Yes please, said the Queen Magic Elephant.
When the monster goes out to hunt at night, without his sunglasses, we will turn up our lights, said the Stars.
We will shine so bright, you will think it’s not night. Then you can see in the monsters eyes and see if they are full of love or evil.
What a brilliant idea, said the Queen.
So the magic elephants waited until night.
When it was dark the monster went out to hunt.
He took off his dark shades, which exposed his terrible eyes.
When I find a baby magic elephant I will eat it alive, thought the monster. I will eat every last part from the head to the heart.
Then, when I am full, I will make a necklace from their baby tusks.
I will wear it everyday to remind me of the the terror I have done.
So the monster went out to hunt.
He saw a magic elephant walking alone and moved close, in the dark.
Now! said the Moon.
The stars turned up their lights. They shined so bright, that birds sang and thought it was not night.
The Queen looked into the monster’s eyes.
Ha ha! said the Queen. You’re a monster!
And before he could escape, all of the magic elephants gathered around and squirted water through their magic trunks.
The monster was carried high into the sky. He flew up up up so high…he went all the way to God.
You will never hurt the magic elephants again, said God.
Gods love was so fierce that it burned all of the evil in the monster’s heart.
And the magic elephants danced and sang and loved and laughed forever.
