“High above the villages there are little creatures that live in the mountains called marmots.

You’d be very lucky to see one, as they live underground. But if you listen carefully, you can sometimes hear them whistle to each other.

In the summer they love to play in the long grass and during the winter they hide away in their cosy burrows beneath the snow.

However, there is one little marmot who loves to come out and play all winter, and his name is Monty!”
