The Green Forest is a collection of short stories about the animals living in the green forest. The two main characters are Mrs Snail and Mr Rock, but there are many other animals that join in with the adventures. Each story has a principle (life lesson) behind it such as love, saying thank you, being brave and so on.

The Chocolate Cake. No. 1
Saying please and thank you.
Mrs Snail slowly moved up a wide road and sat on a stone. Mr Stone got a big fright and cried out, “aah!” Mrs Snail said, “give me a chocolate cake.” “But a chocolate cake is far away and anyway you’re being rude. But OK, for you, even though we have just met, I will go and get you a cake that has been baked.” Mrs Snail said, “thank you” and realized her wrong – which was that she didn’t say please and thank you and this was disrespect. “I will remember to say please and thank you.” She said to her self later that day as she ate her rich chocolate cake.

Invite people into your home.
Mrs Snail was having a bad day. Her ears hurt, her heart was heavy and her clothes were sticky with honey from breakfast. Because of the beastly day she was having, she chose to go for a walk down the road that ran along the river called red (it was called red because of the sand that was found in it). On her way she met Mr Stone who immediately called out and said, “come over to my home Mrs Snail and let’s have two cups of tea.” Mr Stone and Mrs Stone and baby stone loved to host a host of people in their home. They believed that love was visible in hosting people in their home. Mrs Snail replied to this kind offer, “okay, thank you.” And there they all sat, talking about small things, and big things, and things we are to shy to talk about (but should) and all else good.
