A lion, a shark, and a wolf bond over their hurt feelings because they don’t fit in with the other animals. They try vegetarianism and disguises before consulting a wise owl who tells them to be proud of who they are. Their new motto becomes, “I am not bad. I am a carnivore. Eating meat is just what I do.”
Can they truly learn to accept themselves for who they are or will they continue judge themselves by the standards of others?
