(4-5) It was a wonderful day in the villages atop the giant snails, for that day was Kite Day!
Every year on Kite Day each village tried to out fly their neighbors with the most wonderful and elaborate kites they could make. Every year the kites got bigger and more colorful and more elaborate. Yes it was a good day in the snail villages. Everyone was enjoying themselves....
Except the snail herder. He never got to enjoy Kite Day, or any holiday. His job was to lead the giant snails through the shallow sea to the best fish and the best sea grass.
At night, he slept atop an old turtle that crawled along beside them and his only companion was his pet fawn.
