Well, not only men are main heroes – they often masked by animals’ image. The best example is the tale about fairyland Susambil. What is this, where’s it situated and why did our heroes want to get there?

The fairyland described in the tale in short but it’s enough for willing to live there. “There’s large pasture with pure water and thick grass. And nobody will bother you.”– told the donkey and ox. Well, but how we can get there? Our heroes managed to find this place and meet new friends.

They are a cock, bees and jerboas who were tired from hungriness and deep hurt. Together they forgot about their grief and came to fairyland where they lived long and happy.
