Ming Lo’s wife is angry. The couple live beside a big mountain which causes them no end of trouble. “Husband,” says Ming Lo’s wife, “you must move the mountain so that we may enjoy our house in peace.” But how can a man as small as Ming Lo move something as large as a mountain? Maybe the village wise man can help.

(La mujer de Ming Lo está enfadada. La pareja vive debajo de una gran montaña lo que les causa muchos problemas. Un día ella le dijo “Esposo, debes mover la montaña para que podamos disfrutar de nuestra casa en paz”, pero ¿cómo puede un hombre pequeño con Ming Lo mover algo tan grande como una montaña? Quizás el sabio del pueblo pueda ayudarle.)

Jabuti

Of all the animals in the rain forest, Jabutí was the favorite. His shell was smooth and shiny, and the songs he played on his flute were sweet. But his music was a reminder, too, of the mischievous pranks Jabutí sometimes played.

(De todos los animales de la selva Jabuti era el favorito. Su caparazón era suave y brillante y todas las canciones que tocaba con su flauta eran dulces. Pero su música era también un recordatorio de las travesuras maliciosas que Jabutí a veces hacía.)
