Sam was surprised to hear voices one sunny day when he walked deep into the jungle. He followed the voices and he saw trees cut down, lying on the ground. Oliver the owl's eyes were also round with fear - his home had just crashed to the ground. Bobby the bush baby was also scared. Sam wanted to find Elli and Lou so that he could warn them. Elli and Lou were shocked and they wanted to stop the destruction. Sam took them along and on the way, they warned every animal they met. All the animals who wanted to help followed them and Elli decided to make a plan. The animals started talking to the people driving the machines. Their sounds were so loud that the people got scared and left with their enormous machines. The animals got angry looking at the destruction. Would they be able to get back their home as it was before?
