Once upon a time there was a small boy who loved to play with his favorite toy which was a marble. This was not an ordinary marble, but a magical marble.

One day he went to the jungle with the marble and threw the marble on the ground. As soon as he did this, it started snowing heavily. The jungle no longer looked like a jungle, but started looking like the Arctic region. He was very excited with what he saw.

All of a sudden, he saw a huge snowy owl that swooped down to catch a prey. Far away he could see hundreds of seals and hundreds of reindeers. The seals were all lazing near the water.

After a while, from the sea emerged the king of the Arctic, the Polar bear. He was sniffing for his meal, for his favorite meal of seals. He went towards the seals and pounced on them and ate up some big seals. But he could not even go near the baby seals. The baby seals were very smart; they knew that the polar bear is afraid of fire and so they set up a fireplace and huddled around the fireplace. In this way, the baby seals scared the Polar Bear away.

The little boy was enjoying watching all of this. Suddenly, the snowy owl again swooped down, but this time it was not to catch prey, but to snatch the magical marble from his hand. As soon as the boy realized this, he quickly threw the marble on the ground. As soon as he did this, the snow started vanishing, the jungle started looking green again and it no longer looked like the Arctic region, it was now a jungle again. All the Arctic animals went back to the Arctic and the jungle animals returned back to the jungle.

The little boy took his marble and went back home and lived happily ever after.

Until the next magical journey...
