A NEW WAY
TO READ BOOKS
I am the smallest in my 5th grade class. That may be because I am only 10 years old. I love my brother, Niko, even if he is occasionally clingy and he always wants to do the same things as me. My parents say that I do not always listen to the instructions, but I think it's because I'm a go-getter and I see things differently.
My sister's friends call me "Akinna's little brother". They could call me Niko, after all, I am 7 years old, and I protect my sister. That is why I am always with my skateboard when she goes to the park. That's how I discovered the world of light.
I am proud to have recently received my butterfly-guide diploma and have completed my first mission by restoring Akinna's trust. While other butterfly-guides tell me I'm clumsy, I'd rather think Master Wifi is right and that this is my active side taking over.
I am naturally very confident and that's why I'm Optifly. My mission is to do everything to help Niko in achieving his dream of becoming a great musician.
I also owe him gratitude because he was able to save me and give me back my light by thinking very hard about his dream.
These butterflies of misfortune ruined my life! I will do everything to capture all of them, until the last, to prevent them from spreading happiness.
My hedgehog side is very useful because it protects me when I put myself into a ball. Fortunately, my raccoon side allows me to sneak out at night, and my flying squirrel side to glide to escape danger.
Guardians of the light islands for generations, we Zephinlions have the right mix between the speed of a zebra, the lion's strength and the intelligence of a dolphin to protect the butterflies from the villain Grubus and his henchmen.
My master, Grubus, said that I learn quickly and that I'll be able to help him govern the World Of Light, because I have the intelligence of a cow and the agility of a rhinoceros.
I obey my master, Grubus, because he is the strongest, but mostly because my friend Azul told me to.
Master of the Council of the World of Light and teacher of all the little butterfly-guides, I know my role is important in this world. I rely on my long experience as a butterfly-guide and my clairvoyance to serve well.
