Chapter Summary

In remote antiquity, the world was desolate and uninhabited, and there was neither heaven nor earth, but a boundless ocean in which lived millions of different kinds of animals and plants. Restless with anxiety, Yimaoshemao, the Dragon King of the Ocean, sent General Spider Agulumao to search for food all around, in order to feed all those animals, but in vain. He called together all the ministers to talk about it, and then said to Minister Frog: "In order to save our lives, I command you to go out of the ocean to create heaven and earth". The Frog bade the Dragon King farewell and set out on her mission.
