Where to find wisdom?

From the beginning, the little owl has an advantage, because he wants to be wise like his grandad. His hunger leads him to ask many of the other animals for their advice on becoming wise. Each gives a perspective in harmony with their nature.

The koala says, “just take life slowly” while the kangaroo says, “bound through your life and enjoy every day”. The fox advises, “trust your instincts” and the mouse says, “no matter your size … you can achieve anything”.

What is the little owl to believe with all this advice, some of it seemingly contradictory?
