Why the Bat Is Blind
Russell, Age 12, Seth, WV

A long time ago, the bat used to be able to see. He used to say 'hi' to all the other animals.

One day however, a snobby and selfish elephant asked the bat to race him across the jungle. If the bat lost he had to give up his great vision. The bat accepted the challenge.

In the morning the elephant and the bat lined up to race. They both got off to a good start. After a little while the bat was tired and stopped to rest. At the finish line the elephant was waiting for the bat. The elephant said "I won! Hand over your great vision." That is why the bat is blind.
