Once, two brothers lived in a valley. Both brothers were physically deformed with humps on their backs. One brother was good and kind, helpful and friendly, and the other was the opposite. It was time to repair the old hut up in the mountains, but even though it was the lazy brother's turn, he didn't want to go. So the good brother went and did the job instead. On his way through the forest, he saw the beauty in everything he passed, from a sparkling stream to poisonous, iridescent mushrooms to a warty old toad. In the night, magical beings visited him. What happened that night changed both brothers' lives forever. This lyrical folktale reinforces the power of positive thinking.
