It was critical for Stanley to go about his unique way of feeding the animals in the park. You would think spreading breadcrumbs an axiomatic technique, but not Stanley. It was important to him to use a certain space where no one would enter, except him and the creatures he fed.
Stanley was an ideal employee at Aquarius Pets. He featured the Lost and Found section where pets could be adopted with one month’s food and a bed supplied at no charge.

Victoria floated across the stage as the new star of the ballet company. Her envious companion swans were poised behind her.

To live as a fairy would be such delight
Hiding in the sunshine, coming out at night

The slightest movement of a fairy’s wings
Because in a child’s mind, imagination sings.
