The Malignant and a Malignant 1 & 1/2 is a story of a baby frog and a vicious viper who perceived himself to be wiser and more cunning since he believed that he was known to be the slyest snake among all other snakes, yet he was not aware that there could be someone a little bit more cunning than him. At the end, he finally acknowledged the reality around him; unfortunately for him, it was too late to avoid the disaster that he created himself, since he could not believe that something smaller than him could outdo him. The author wrote this story to give children a moral of life.

Once upon a time, a verdant forest was hit by a hard drought. Due to the drought, there was a famine.
The ground and most of the lakes dried up, so the frogs that used to live in the water moved to the trees. There they could drink the bit of water made from dew in the morning. Because of the lack of food and water, it was rare to see animals in the forest. They were all afraid of becoming prey to other predators.
In that situation, it was difficult for the animals to find food. In those circumstances, a baby frog was born, and his parents were not able to nourish him because of the difficult conditions that came about because of the famine. As a result, they abandoned their baby frog. Miraculously, the baby frog managed to survive on his own without the help of his parents; nobody knew how the baby frog succeeded in doing so.
In search of food, the baby frog traveled from place to place in the forest, trying for everyday survival within the forest. During this time, the animals began to notice how they were declining in number because they considered one another as predators and prey. All the animals gathered and made a rule. They would no longer feed on one another unless the animal tried to take away their life or their loved one's life, or if one owed the other a life.
The baby frog continued his voyage to the only lake left in the forest. The baby frog stopped by the lake to drink water and avoid dehydration, and abruptly he noticed an eagle drowning. The drowning eagle was too weak to fly because so little food was available during the famine. Bravely, the baby frog, who was a natural swimmer, hurried to save the drowning eagle.
