Modern Story
Region: Subarctic
Teaching: Honesty

In this graphic story, Sara is a practical joker who likes to play jokes on her friends and family. The problem is that not all of her jokes are funny and people soon get tired of them. When Sara’s mother shows Sara that she could end up really hurting someone through her behaviour, Sara realizes that she really is going too far with her practical jokes and resolves to stop. However, one time when she isn’t joking, her friends refuse to believe her and it almost ends in tragedy. In this story, it is made clear that our actions can affect others in ways we do not intend.
