Whistle of the Bargools

Shlomit Cohen-Assif
AGE: 6-10

One day, in a far-off kingdom, the queen dies. The prince, of course, is very sad. So the palace servants go hunting for a baby elephant to cheer him up. The prince is delighted and decides to call him Luma-Luma. He even appoints a special minister, named Elephminister, to care for his every need. But "because of the joy in his own eyes, the prince didn`t see the sadness in the elephant`s eyes." Eventually, however, he realizes that the baby elephant misses his mother, just like he does, so he comes up with a plan. And then his friend, the palace gardener, tells him about the Bargools, a people who draw magical powers from a crystal ball. So the two set out to find a Bargool. When they meet one, he lends them his power for their spectacular rescue mission, and they take Luma-Luma, whose name is actually Titilin, back to the forest.
