Story #6 – Slumber Bumm and the Red Wolf’s Toast – p.1

Once upon a time, in a land of simple people and complicated animals, there was a traveling circus. The circus packed all of its tents, clowns, hucksters, lions, acrobats, ticket-takers, elephants and everything and everyone into ten big trucks, which rode as a caravan across the country. Every Friday they would stop in a new town and set up their show, and entertain the local folks for two nights and two days. On Monday morning, they would pack up again and hit the road.

This kind of life was perfect for some, but not for others. The people who worked there liked it for the most part, but there were quite a few of the animals who were there because they’d been trapped or tricked, and in every town they tried to escape.

The leader of these restless creatures was a red wolf. He had been caught one afternoon when he had gotten separated from his pack and the circus people kept him in a cage, and charged a fee for folks to look at him. He hated being stared at, and always growled and bit at the cage bars when a group came by. (He did not know, however, that this was exactly what the circus people wanted him to do.)
