In a quiet valley far from the city lived to sing. When he wasn’t singing, he whistled, and when he wasn’t whistling, he played music on an old wind-up gramophone.

The animals of the valley learned to love the man and his music, but one day the music stopped. The old mand had forgotten how to sing. And so all the animals of the valley gathered together to remind the old man of his true love – music.
