How the pelican got its name

Resilient Hedgehog


The pelicants are bored and listless. Whenever they have an opportunity to do something interesting, they say “No!”. But two of the pelicants decide they will have a go.
How the Pelican Got its Name is about having a sense of self-worth, being prepared to try things even though you’re not sure you can do it … and finding out that it can be fun.
