Collin Thinks Big
Collin Caterpillar and Sylvia Snail were crawling along the garden wall one sunny morning.
“Isn’t the world big ?” remarked Collin as he gazed around.
“it’s huge, it’s enormous” agreed Sylvia, who thought a lot about such things inside her mind.
“It makes me feel so very small,” Collin said.
“But I know a way to change all that!” said Sylvia wisely.
So the two of them spent the rest of that morning collecting the tiniest things they could find.
Collin collected a crumb, a pea, a shell and a petal. Soon he had found a feather, a peanut, a button and a berry.
Sylvia brought back a drawing pin, a paper clip, a pen nib, a pin and a needle.
“Look! You’re almost a giant Collin!” said Sylvia.
“Funnily enough, how small these things are,” chuckled Collin, “and look how big I am!”

The Legend of Lake Batur
A long time ago, there lived on the island of Bali a giant like creature named Kbo Iwo. The people of Bali used to say that Kbo Iwo was everything, a destroyer as well as a creator. He was satisfied with the meal, but this meant for the Balinese people enough food for a thousand men.
They asked Kbo Iwo to build them a very deep well, and rebuild all the houses and temples he had destroy. After they fed Kbo Iwo, he began to dig a deep hole. One day he had eaten too much, he fell asleep in the hole. The oldest man in the village gave a sign, and the villagers began to throw the limestone they had collected before into the hole. The limestone made the water inside the hole boiling. Kbo Iwo was buried alive. Then the water in the well rose higher and higher until at last it overflowed and formed Lake Batur. The mound of earth dug from the well by Kbo Iwo is known as Mount Batur.
