Near a big, blue sea lives a herd of fantastic elephants. There is the always-energetic Hiphant, Lightphant (who is the best at playing hide-and-seek), Seaphant (who is a good swimmer), Shyphant (who is quite timid), Firephant (who is quite talented), and the gleeful Bodyphant. They always have fun times together. Even so, problems and arguments always arise with one of the elephants. No one can remember what his parents named him, but the other elephants call him Nastyphant. One day when Nastyphant is sad after getting stung by a jellyfish, he offends Bodyphant so badly that all the other elephants are saddened, too. Nevertheless, Nastyphant himself is the glummest of them all. What can be done to make everything right again?
