ZOG AND THE FLOOD
The howler monkeys are facing hunger and thirst
The Pantanal is a wild region in Brazil where the dry season alternates with the rainy one.
Zog is the elder of the howler monkeys and has been ruling his clan with equanimity in the haven of a generous forest. For obscure reasons that no one here can explain, the winds have stopped blowing and have not carried away "the rivers of the sky" which, until then, gave life to the parched forest. The rain shortfall turns upside down everything Zog always believed to be in the natural order of things. His people will have to face hunger and thirst for the very first time.
The buds have not blossomed. The water saved up in tree trunks has dried out and the swamp's king, the anaconda Olim, sneaks into the forest intent on capturing Zog who is weakened.
