When a great gush of water from the Sacred Life Tree threatened to cover the Earth, SIGU knew just what to do.
First he made a magic basket to stop the flow. When that was accidentally knocked over by a curious monkey, he went for Plan B instead.
This involved locking up all the animals in a huge cave and sealing it with wax. Then he shinned up a very tall tree to await developments.
The flood waters covered the Earth for a long time... SIGU was very bored up in his tree. Every so often he’d drop a nut. Whenever it went ‘plop’ he sighed. Then one day it went ‘thud’; the waters had subsided and it was now time to release the animals and start mopping-up operations.
