The president of Darkland was a pig-a very bad pig. He was a pig of major importance. He was rich, and he had a lot of strength. But he was mean to all the animals in Darkland. He kept all of the world's light in a bag. He preferred to keep the world cool and dark. He wanted to stop the progress of the city. The animals couldn't work in the dark. He didn't have any respect for them. "Light is too good for them," he said. "Only I should have light."

黑暗之地的国王是一只猪—一只很坏的猪。它地位很高,很富有也很强大。但它对所有领地内的动物都很残酷。它把光装在一个袋子里,因为它喜欢让世界变得冷漠和黑暗。它想要阻止城市的发展,人们没有光就无法工作。它对其它动物一点都不尊重。“光对它们来说太高尚了,”它说。“只有我才配拥有。”

But the animals needed light. So they decided to hold a competition. They wanted to find the smartest animal in Darkland. That animal had to steal light from the president. They advertised the competition everywhere. All the animals came.

但动物们需要光明,所以它们决定举行一个比赛,以此找出国土中最聪明的人。被选中的人要去偷国王的光明袋。它们竞赛到处张贴,所有的动物都来了。

The next morning, Raven ate breakfast and then left his home. "How will I gain light from the president?" thought Raven. He needed to trick the president somehow. Then, Raven had an idea. Raven could make his voice sound like anything!

第二天一早,雷文吃过早饭就出门了。“我要怎么才能拿到光明袋呢?”雷文心想。它必须骗一骗国王。过了一会,它想出了一个主意。它能模仿所有声音。
