let your imagination soar!

deep in the forests of Sunderland, Stokley and his close companion, Slade, are hidden beneath a fallen log. They have just escaped the clutches of the fierce dragon lizards. The Guardian of the Forest, Aldon, appears to support and encourage them.

Stokley, I want you to have this.” Aldon leaned toward Stokley. In his paw he held an elaborately carved recurve bow made of light birch and inlaid with ebony scrolling.
“Aldon, I can’t . . . .” Stokley looked up at Aldon in amazement. “Only the best of our echidna warriors carry such a bow!”   
“You’re right, Stokley. Please take these as well.” In Aldon’s paw a quiver of arrows magically appeared. A shower of sparkling light fell from the arrows and evaporated in the air around Stokley. “You have to practice, but I have faith in you. You will become a great warrior.”
