There was a little mouse smaller than a little finger.  This little mouse was waiting for the letter to come.  I hope a letter would come before the house of cheese is gone.
 Obnoxious frogs said, “This umbrella is ours as we found it. No one else can use it.”
 The deer was just happy with plenty of nice and green grass.
The cat is looking outside by the window all day long. No one else can see what he sees.
 Polar bears live in a place colder than a refrigerator.
 I have something to tell you. I learned it from a TV program that a night with the full moon is very precious to owls. That is the night when owls’ babies are born.
Mother once told me that there is the rabbit on the moon.
 That’s it! Caterpillars become butterflies. They can finally explore the world.
 It is time for me to explore the world.

On the seashore, the brothers saw a Green Pigeon bravely coming to the nasty sea for water. On Sports Day, the older brother began to run when the starter whistled. He was rushing like a great wave and his little brother was convinced of the first prize for him. He got, however, overtaken by his rival just before the finish line.

16.『おみくじ』北愛理


Omikuji, Paper Fortune by Airi KITA

Many of Japanese visit a shrine on a New Year’s Day. People find pleasure in drawing omikuji that alternates hope and fear. Although some of them believe "lucky" or "unlucky" with it, in fact an arrogant Excellent Luck judges them by their appearance and decides a range of fortunes from "excellent" to "unlucky".
One day, a boy stealthily took home a fortune stick of good luck and happened to know the secret of the omikuji box. When the boy told it “People are rather earnest about drawing omikuji,” the fortune stick felt puzzling how to decide the order to get out of the box.
Finally the boy found a solution: He went to the shrine to return the stick in the omikuji box and told Excellent Luck “Be careful not to be arrogant just because of your excellence and be more fair.” From that day, fortunes seriously decided the order to get out of the box by a miniature omikuji for themselves.


17.『かぜとはやぶさ』榊原悠介


A Falcon and the Wind by Yusuke SAKAKIBARA

In strong wind, a falcon was about to fly thinking “I’d happen to meet my wind.” He met though no wind in the air, falling and falling. Suddenly, he felt something on the wing. He instantaneously caught it, then he flew up in the sky. More relaxed, he felt lighter and he flew around. So absorbed, he finally couldn’t realize whether he’s on the wing or just hovering. When he saw a flock of bird flying ahead, he found that every bird was accompanied by its own wind. The falcon firmly caught the wind.



18.『わたしにね』サニー パク



If I Had a Stethoscope by Sunny Park

One morning, the girl woke up with a fever
Whose mother took her the hospital
Where a doctor placed a stethoscope for a medical examination
Which looked mysteries to her
With a cool touch and a sound.
Then she left herself free to fantasize what to do with it, 
If I had a stethoscope.


19.『おとのおいしゃさん』川野由希衣





A Sound Doctor by Yukie KAWANO

Eddie used to be an orchestra conductor who was too weak to point out the players’ mistake. Among the orchestra, players had voiced complains about their conductor’s attitude and finally kicked him out.
Eddie ended up having to go from town to town and one day he happened to visit a town where he met and helped a stranded taxi driver or a clock shop in trouble. Because of his profession, he had a good ear for music that worked for problems. From that day, the people of the town came knocking on the door of his lodge and he solved their problems one after another with his special talent.
Eddie decided to settle him down there as a sound doctor. Hearing good things about him, orchestral players also came to ask Eddie to repair their instruments. It was them who had kicked him out of the orchestra, while they didn’t recognize the sound doctor as Eddie. The doctor was though willing to help them and they were grateful to him for his work.
