Balancing Monkey Games
While waiting underground and wondering what might have become of their world, the peeps found solace in remembering the good things they experienced on the surface. The warmth of the sun on their skin, the buzzing sound of a bees’ wings and the smell of freshly turned soil. When the peeps finally emerged, their senses were overwhelmed, and they began to worry about their survival. How would they survive knowing only how to grow potatoes?
