(Its well written and the cover of the book is hand-made).
Bookolla

There was a man and his wife that lived on a farm with their only son. They did not have buckets of gold but their only priced posession was a big cow, named Bookolla.
On a normal sunny day when the man went to milk the cow, Bookolla was nowhere to be found.
The man and wife decided to send their only son out to find the cow, Bookolla.
They gave their son some bread to take with him and he headed off looking for Bookolla.

After a long walk searching for Bookolla, the boy desided to take some rest. He sat down on a nearby rock and called out "Bookolla if you can hear me make a sound!"
In the distance he could hear Bookolla calling. "Mooo!"
Even though the sound of Bookolla was weak, the boy got filled with hope.
He got to his feet and continued his journey towards where the sound came from.

He walked for a while before coming to an halt. Again he looked around and called out. "Bookolla if you can hear me make a sound!"
In the distance he could hear Bookolla calling. "Mooooo!"
But this time it was closer than before.
The hope inside the boy was building. He continued his journey towards where the sound came from.

After walking for a little while longer the boy saw that the sun was setting and he was rather hungry.
He sat down on a rock and found the bread eathing a little before looking around and calling out to Bookolla. "Bookolla if you can hear me make a sound!"
"MOOOOOOOO!" Could be heard but this time the sound came from below.

The boy got down from the rock and looked down. There below him was a cave..
The boy ventured inside the cave, it was dark and big.

After a little walk in the dark cave he found Bookolla tied to a wooden pole.
The boy untied Bookolla from the wooden pole and together they begun the journey back home.
The sun had gone down and it had gotten dark.

They had not gotten far when they noticed they were being chased by two giants. One was tall and big, the other smaller.
The boy realized that soon the giants would catch them. He looked at Bookolla and said "What do we do now Bookolla?"
Bookolla then answered "Take a hair from my tail and place it on the ground. Will it make a lake so wide and deep that no one can cross it but a flying bird."
The boy took a hair from Bookollas tail and placed it on the ground. Just like Bookolla said, The hair became a big lake.


The giants came to the lake and where unable to get across.
The big giant looked at the smaller giant and said "Go home and fetch our fathers big bull and bring him here!"
The smaller giant did as was told and soon brought the big bull to the lake.
The bull starte to rink all the water and quickly had dranked the lake dry.
While this had been going on the boy and Bookolla had been moving as fast as they could to get home.

Again the boy sees that the giants are catching up with them and the boy turns to Bookolla and sais "What do we do now Bookolla?"
Bookolla then answered "Take a hair from my tail and place it on the ground. Will it make a fire so large and wide that no one can cross it but a flying bird."
The boy took a hair from Bookollas tail and placed it on the ground. Just like Bookolla said, The hair became a large fire.

The giants came to the fire and were unable to get past.
The big giant looked at the smaller one and said "Go and fetch out fathers big bull and bring him here."
The smaller giant did as was told and soon brought the big bull to the large fire.
The bull started to pee all the water the bull had dranked from the lake before over the fire and soon was able to put it out.

In the meanwhile, Bookolla and the boy continued to move as fast as they could back home.

Again the boy sees that the giants are catching up with them and turns to Bookolla and sais "What do we do now Bookolla?"
Bookolla then answered "Take a hair from my tail and place it on the ground. Will it make a mountain so big and tall that no one cat get past it but a flying bird."
The boy took a hair from Bookollas tail and placed it on the ground. Like Bookolla had said the hair turned into a big and tall mountain.
The giants came to the mountain and where unable to get past. The big giant looked at the smaller one and said "Go home and fetch out fathers big drill and bring it here.!"
The smaller giant did as was told and soon brought the big drill to the mountain.

The big giant took the drill and started to drill a hole through the mountain. The sun was rising again.
The giants pastience grew thin and forced themselves into the hole they had drilled.
The giants struggled but soon the giants were stuck inside the hole they had drilled.
The sun came out and shined at the hole they had drilled and at the giants and the giants turned to stone.

The boy got home to his parents with Bookolla and there was a celebration. Bringing home their pricest posession and son was all they could ask for.
This is their tale of what happened that day to Bookolla and the son.
A tale that has been told, from one generation to another.
Where is the mountain the giants got stuck in? Perhaps you will find it one day.
