A baby lovely baby Gnu is born but his fur is unlike that with which the other animals are familiar. It shows a tinge of blue when the sun shines on it. This difference causes the other animals to think there is a relationship between the birth of so odd a Gnu and the attacks of a fierce black panther out to kill and eat their children. This leads to the ostracism and loneliness of the poor little blue Gnu. He battles with himself to discover what he should do. Is there way out of such a problem?
