One day the little doodleberries were all resting under the tree after having had a happy time playing with the rabbits. They had just about got over their trauma of losing one of their friends but they knew they would never forget him. It was the first time that they had ever known sadness. An owl had come and perched on a tree near to them one day and told them that sometimes there is sadness, but that it would pass in time, though they would never forget their friend. He was a wise old owl.
Suddenly, as the little doodleberries rested under the tree there was such a noise came from the sky. They looked up trembling. There, in the sky, not too far above their heads was another loud machine that looked as if it was going to come down on them. All the doodleberries started to go BERSERK, fearing what was going to become of them, and suddenly they wished they were rabbits and could go and live under the ground. But the machine then disappeared, rising higher into the sky. The doodleberries were very shaken up, and they began to realise that the world was quite a fearful place and they wondered what they could do to protect themselves. At that point the wise old owl appeared and told them not to be fearful, but just to go on enjoying being doodleberries and playing with the rabbits because there were things called men inside those flying machines, and they would not want to come crashing to the ground. He told them not to be frightened of loud noises, because that was all they were, and soon it would be night time and all would be peaceful again, and that tomorrow would be another day when they could play happily with the rabbits.
