Ben also continued working on his retelling of a fable. Ben edited the text and printed it:
One day a panda was walking through the big, hilly, bamboo forest looking for bamboo. He saw a round, blue pitcher full of bamboo leaves and sticks. He reached his paw into it to get a couple of sticks and leaves. He grabbed too many so his paw was stuck tightly in the pitcher full of bamboo. A man with a green hat, who was strolling through the forest taking pictures of birds, said wisely, “If you are satisfied with just one piece of bamboo at a time you can get your paw out.”
Then he worked on illuminating the first letter of the story:
Once the letter was illuminated, he printed the panda on the page:
He still wants to add a bamboo leaf decorative border.
