The Last Tale to Tell: Chapter 3: Going
When the name comes, however, Calicotail is shocked. The slip reads: Calicotail Vineswinger! Her mother, after reading the slip, says, “Well, you’d better get going, haven’t you?” “Going?” Calicotail asks, confused. “On your little quest!” Calicotail realizes what her mother is saying, and runs upstairs. How could she, the clumsiest and most forgetful of any monkey anywhere, go out to find the greatest heroes of all time? The thought alarmed and excited her. She decides she will take her atlas and history book…but she will be traveling through dangerous land, so she should not bring anything to heavy so she can be quick. She decides to bring a little extra food, too, and the next morning she sets off. Only on consulting her history book does she realize how much danger she is in. There seem to be guards everywhere, and she is not in a fit state to take on a chipmunk at the moment. She knew she shouldn’t have brought the history book!
