The Magic Tree
This video is part of the series Draw Me A Story

Ever since the dawn of time, some places have been luckier than others. I don't know why. Our story happens in a far-off barren land scorched by the sun, even though it is between two great rivers, one to the east and one to the west. These rivers were dangerous places for the people and their herds because of the many wild beasts that went down to the water's edge to quench their thirst Standing under the shade of a huge tree, the only tree to be found in that vast plain, an abandoned young boy realized he was all alone in the world. His only company being his two goats. He could think of nothing to do but wail, "How will I get by all alone? I'm only a child. What can I do now?"
