Karin's original story How was rainbow made?,
The rainbow was often compared to a weaved red belt in the myths from the Baltics; that is where the inspiration for this story comes from

page 2: Long time ago, there was a joyful little girl who liked to run on the clouds. One day she was playing she rolled a few spools of rain-threads off the clouds. They fell into the lake below.
page 3: In the lake with shimmering silver water lived three nymphs. The nymphs were very crafty and they decided to weave a beautiful belt out of the rain-threads.

page 7: When the belt was ready, the nymphs threw it up into the sky - past the clouds, through the sunlight, all the way across the lake. The people saw the red arch in the sky and called it a rainbow.
