Happy Valley in the village of Merryville was a happy place to live and everyone who lived there was happy and thankful. Laughter and songs filled the streets and houses of Merryville and echoed throughout the valley. The Little Old Man who lived in the cave there was happy hearing the songs and laughter from the village and the smell of bread, cakes, and candies filled his home. Wild animals often visited the Old Man and they liked it when he read from the Glory Book because a white light shone from its pages when it was opened. One day while going on his monthly visit to Merryville, a whirlwind came and took the old man and threw him on the ground. In his sleep-like state, the Old Man had a bad dream about Merryville. How did the Old Man bring normalcy back to Merryville?
