Living with People Tip Tip was discovered on an island by some curious explorers. The island was left alone by the modern world for the past several hundred years. When one of the explorers saw the tip of the island, he asked his friends to turn around. Other sailors had always moved along or found the island uninteresting. The island looked barren and lifeless from the outside. These curious sailors would have moved on, too, had they not heard a timid moan on the island. In this manner, the explorers had found a little man with a kind and scared-looking face. They asked many questions to the little man who only replied "Tip Tip" to every word thrown at him. Then, Tip Tip was brought into a world that was based on language.
