The Raccoon and the Angel
by Manuel Hasani Gonzalez
Have you ever wondered how certain animals got their uniqueness? Each and every animal is different, having their own special attributes to make them special. A fox, for example, has a fluffy and beautiful tail, while a frog has long, strong legs. Every animal has something special for their purpose in life.
The Raccoon and the Angel is a story about the uniqueness of animals. Manuel Hasani Gonzalezs story is a folklore tale about how the raccoon got his mask. The raccoon believed he was different because he did not have special characteristics like his other animal friends. He soon learns his difference is what makes him special.
