Once upon a time, there lived a pelican named Peter who loved to wander along the shore of a beautiful lake. Peter was always hungry and was always searching for food to fill his empty belly.

One day, while wandering along the shore, Peter came across a kind fisherman who was fishing in the lake. The fisherman was using a big net to catch fish, and Peter watched as he pulled the net to the shore.

As the fisherman started to remove the fish from the net, Peter’s hunger grew even stronger, and he couldn’t resist the temptation. He flew down to the shore and started to eat some of the fish.

The fisherman saw Peter eating the fish, and instead of getting angry, he smiled and gave Peter even more fish to eat. Peter was filled with gratitude for the fisherman’s kindness, and from that day on, he visited the fisherman every day to receive his kindness and generosity.
