More Carkayous stories from Jesse Smith…..

unnamed-4

“The battle between the killer cocks and the rebellious rabbits has been going on for centuries.  They were once allies against the ever aggressive squirrel tribe but the cocks started craving more territory and eventually turned on the rabbits.  Up until recently the cocks were winning, but the rabbits newfound alliance with the octopi has balanced out the odds.”

“Diggle the Dumbo Octopus”

 

“Diggle” took up residence in the Ayebeesea off of Ferchettes Island East, in the land of Carkayous.   He is considered to be one of the more intelligent cephalopods and quite docile.  But don’t cross him, he’s been known to conjure up elaborate plans of revenge.
