A fly, a bee, a hare, a bear, a mouse and a deer are holding a meeting to discuss the English language. The sun and the little elephant are observers listening to the discussion. Each animal gives their opinion about the situation and presents a number of problems, conclusions, and solutions. The elephant is eavesdropping and having a lot of thoughts about everything himself. In the end he comes to very wise decisions while the sun, who has been the other observer, is very happy with the resulting outcome. They both feel great about this most unusual day in their life.
