Ntonu, the pig, spends his days bored and lonely; his only diversions are watching the other animals in the farm yard: ducks, hens and their chicks, little worms. Or smelling the leaves or the perfume of a geranium. Sometimes there is the boy who brings him food and plays with him and scratches him. So he goes through life, unchanging, forever apart from the other animals for fear that he should frighten them with his bulk and clumsiness. Until the day when a never before seen being appears – a peacock. What a wonder for the pig, and as it were not enough, the mysterious creature opens up its tail into a magnificient wheel, like a kind of invitation – which is enough for Ntonu, he rushes out into the yard. Ah, the mayhem! All the animals flee in terror, their clamour alarming the farmer. And that seals Ntonu’s fate.
