I. A Puzzle

Look! This is Pinky. She is white, but her ears and nose are pink. And that is Blackie. He has got a grey body and a black tail. They are very nice and they are my sister and brother. They are my friends, too. And this is me. I am Reddy. I am red, and red is my favorite color. We are kittens and we are little.

We have got a mother. But she is not with us now. She is with her sister. Mrs Paw visits and helps us. She is our mum's friend.

It is sunny today. We are in the garden now. Pinky is on the swing. She is swinging. Blackie is in an armchair. He is reading. And I am in a tree. I am watching the birds.

Pinky is very happy and she sings.

"Please, Pinky, don't sing!" says Blackie. "I can't read!"

"Don't read," says Pinky. "Listen to my song."

"But I want to read," says Blackie.

"And I want to sing!" says Pinky.

Pinky sings and Blackie is very angry. He takes his radio and turns it on.

Now Pinky is angry. She can't hear her song. She jumps down, comes up to Blackie and turns the radio off.

"Why are you doing that?" she asks. "Can you read when the radio is singing?"

Blackie looks at her and says:

"I can't read when the radio is singing. But you can sing when I am reading. That is not fair. But now I can't read and you can't sing. It is fair."

I, Reddy, don't like when my friends are not happy. I climb down the tree and go to them. I come up and say:

"Pinky, you can sing in the house. Then Blackie can't hear you and he can read. Or Blackie, you can read in the house. Then you can't hear Pinky and she can sing in the garden."

Blackie and Pinky are nice kittens.

"OK, I am going into the house," they say together.

"I can't run in my boots. They are too big," says Blackie and he looks at me.

"Now let's work in the garden. Let's water the flowers and the trees in the garden."

"Oh no!" we cry together with Blackie. "We can't work in the garden. We are tired."

"But think about the trees and the flowers!" says Pinky. "You drink milk and water every day, but they can't do it. They haven't got milk or water in the fridge. They are thirsty."

"How do you know?" we ask. "Do you talk to trees?"

"No, I don't," says Pinky, and she is very angry. "But I know! Look!"

Pinky takes a glass of water and waters the floor.

"Can you see the water?" she asks.

"Yes, we can," we answer.

"The floor is not thirsty. It is not drinking the water," says Pinky. "Now let's go to the garden."

Pinky takes another glass with water and we go to the garden.

We come up to a tree. Pinky waters the tree.

"Look!" says Pinky. "The tree is drinking! There is no water on the ground now."

We look at the ground. It is wet, but there is no water on the ground.

"The trees are thirsty!" says Pinky. "Now help me to water them."

"Pinky, you are very clever!" I say. "You can understand trees."

"Go out!" says Pinky. "The water is not warm. It is cold."

"I am not cold," says Blackie. "I like the water!"

"Pinky," I say. "Let's eat our breakfast."

"But we can't. Blackie is in the lake." "Yes, we can," I say. I take a piece of meat, eat it and say:

"Look, Blackie! I am eating our meat! It is very nice!"

Blackie looks at me and says:

"Eat the meat. I can fish here."

So Blackie is in the water. The water is cold. Pinky is not happy. She is sad. She looks at me and says:

"Reddy, what can we do?"

"Wait and see," I say.

Blackie is fishing now. He is not looking at me. I walk into the water and dive. Now I am under the water. I swim to Blackie under the water. Now I can see his legs. I open my mouth and bite him.

"Help!" cries Blackie. "There is a monster in the water."

Blackie runs out of the water.

"There is a monster in the lake!" he says to Pinky.

"A monster?!" cries Pinky.

"Yes, it has got red ears and very sharp teeth!"

VIII. A Visitor

It is evening. We are in the house. We are on the sofa. It is very late, but we don't want to go to bed.

There is a big vase in our room. It is empty.

Suddenly we hear a noise in the vase. We jump down and run to the vase. Blackie climbs up the vase and looks in.

"What is there?" we ask.

"I can't see," says Blackie. "It is too dark in the vase."

Then we hear the noise again.

"There is a small animal in the vase!" says Pinky. "Let's help it!"

"How can we help it?" we ask.

"Take the umbrella and put it in the vase. Then the animal can climb up the umbrella and get out," says Pinky.

I take the umbrella and put it in the vase. We listen and look. Suddenly we see the small animal. It is climbing up the umbrella. It is Oh, it is a mouse!

"Oh, help!" cries Pinky. Pinky is a kitten, but she is afraid of mice. She jumps upon a shelf and hides behind the books.

Now the mouse can see us. It looks at us and cries, "Oh, help!" and climbs down the umbrella back into the vase.

"There is a mouse in the vase!" cries Blackie. "It is big and fat and I am hungry!"

"Oh no!" cries Pinky on the shelf. "Don't eat it! Please, don't eat it!"

But Blackie doesn't listen to Pinky. He puts his paw into the vase. He wants to catch the mouse but he can't. Then Blackie says. "I can climb into the vase and catch the mouse."

Blackie climbs into the vase. We can only see his tail now.

"It is too dark here!" cries Blackie. "I can't see the mouse!" He is very angry.

Suddenly we can see the mouse. It climbs up Blackie's tail and out of the vase.

"Blackie!" I say. "The mouse is not in the vase!"

"Where is it?" cries Blackie.

The mouse climbs down the vase and runs into a hole in the floor.

"It is under the floor," says Pinky. "Blackie, climb out!"

"But I can't!" cries Blackie. "Help me!"

I look at Pinky, and she looks at me.

"Then jump out!" we say.

"I can't jump here!" says Blackie.

"What can we do?" I ask Pinky.

"Take the umbrella and put it in the vase," says Pinky. "Then this hungry animal can climb out."

I put the umbrella in the vase. Soon we can see Blackie's head, then his body and his tail.

"Thank you," he says.

"The mouse is in that small hole in the floor," says Pinky. "You can climb in and catch it."

Blackie looks at the small hole.

It is Sunday today. Our mummy is coming today. We love our mum. She is kind and she loves us. Our mum is very clean and she likes when we are clean, too.

Now we can hear a noise at the door. It is our mum. She is coming in.

"Hello, my little kittens," she says. "How are you?"

"We are fine," we mew.

Our mum goes to the bathroom. There is a big tub in the bathroom. Our mum washes in the tub.

Then she says: "I am clean. Now it is time to wash your bodies, paws and heads."

We like our tub because it is magic. Pinky jumps into the tub first. Then Blackie and I jump in.

Our mum washes our heads, bodies and paws. We are very funny now. We are wet and very thin. I look at Blackie and see a white spot on his nose.

"Blackie," I say. "Here is your white spot."

"Oh great!" cries Blackie. "I have got my beautiful white spot again."

"Oh Reddy!" cries Pinky. "Your ears are yellow again. You are handsome with these ears."

I run to the mirror and look in it. I can see my yellow ears again. They are very nice.

"But Pinky," we say, "you are always white."

"Yes," says Pinky. "I am always white. And my ears and nose are always pink. It is because I clean my ears, nose and body every day."

"But it is not interesting," we say. "You are white every day, your nose is pink every day."

"Why? What is interesting?" asks Pinky.

"It is interesting to lose the white spot on your nose," says Blackie, "or your yellow ears," I say, "and then suddenly find them in the magic tub."

"And then you meet your friends and they say" starts Pinky.

Suddenly we hear a noise at the door. It is Ted. He often visits us now. He comes in, looks at us and says: "Hello, Pinky! Hello, everyone! And where are your brothers?"

We look at Ted and cry: "But we are here! You are looking at us!"

"No, you are not Pinky's brothers. Blackie hasn't got a white spot on his nose, and Reddy hasn't got yellow ears," says Ted. "OK, I can come in the evening. Are your brothers at home in the evening?"

Mummy is at Mrs Paw's house today. Ted is ill. And we are playing in the garden. Suddenly we see a woman. She is coming to us.

She comes up and looks at us. She looks at Blackie and me, then she looks at Pinky.

Suddenly she takes Pinky in her arms. She goes out of our garden with Pinky.

"Help!" cries Pinky.

"Bite her!" cries Blackie.

But Pinky can't bite. She is very kind.

The woman walks and walks and we run after her.

She comes to a house, opens the door and goes in. Then she closes the door.

Blackie and I are sitting at the door now. We are sad and afraid.

Suddenly I see an open window. I jump into the window. Then Blackie jumps into the window, too. Now we are in a very big room. But where is Pinky?

We hear a noise at the door and we hide under the sofa.

The woman comes in. She is holding Pinky in her hands. She goes to the window and closes it.

"Oh no," Blackie and I say. We are looking at her from under the sofa.

The woman puts Pinky on the sofa and says: "This is your home, little kitten. You are my little Pussy. Pussy, you are my pet now. You can sleep on the sofa. You can walk on the floor, but don't jump on the table, cupboard or bookcases. I don't like it."

The woman goes out and closes the door. We climb out.

'"Pinky," we say, "we are here."

"Oh," she cries, "thank you. I am afraid. I don't want a new home. What can I do?"

"We can jump on the cupboard, bookcases, shelves and table."

"Why?" asks Pinky.

"Look!" I say. I jump onto the bookcase. There is a big beautiful vase there. I push the vase and it is on the floor. Then I jump onto the shelf and all the books are on the floor. Blackie jumps onto the cupboard. Now there are a lot of cups, plates and glasses on the floor.

Pinky is looking at us.

"What are you doing?" she cries.

Now we can hear a noise at the door. The woman is coming back.

"Where is my little Pussy?" she says behind the door. She opens the door and looks around.

"Oh!" she cries and sits down on the floor.

She is sitting and looking at the broken vase, cups and plates.

XII. Helping Mummy

Today we are helping mum in the garden. We are planting flowers and vegetables. Mum is planting roses. Blackie is planting tomatoes. I am planting potatoes. And Pinky is planting carrots.

"Mum, when can we eat the vegetables?" we ask.

"When they grow big," she says.

Every day Pinky and I go to the garden and water our seeds. Blackie doesn't water his seeds every day. He is lazy.

Then we can see very small leaves. They are our vegetables. The leaves grow and grow. Now they are very big. But there aren't any carrots or potatoes. There is only a small tomato in the leaves.

"Mummy," cries Pinky, "why is it so? Reddy and I water our plants every day, but there aren't any carrots or potatoes. And Blackie waters his plants on Mondays and he has got a tomato."

"My dear," says mum, "come here and let's dig."

Pinky, mum and I go to our plants. We dig and dig. Hooray! Our carrots and potatoes are funny.

They hide in the ground. We dig them out. There are a lot of them.

"Now," says mum, "Pinky and Reddy can have a lot of carrots and potatoes for lunch."

"And me?" asks Blackie. He wants carrots and potatoes, too.

"You can have your green tomato," says mum.

We look at Blackie. He is crying. We are sad.

"Mum," we say. "Can we give him some carrots and potatoes? We have got a lot of them."

Mum looks at Blackie. He is still crying. Our mum is kind and she says: "OK, but don't eat his green tomato. You can eat it when it is red."

"Mummy," says Blackie, "I can water the tomatoes every day."

Now he works in the garden every day and there are a lot of tomatoes in the leaves. They are red, and we eat them together.

XIII. Goodbye

Today we are going to mum's sister, aunt Fatty. We are taking our toys with us. I am taking my toy cars, aeroplanes and helicopters. Pinky is taking her dolls and their clothes. She has got a lot of clothes for dolls. There are skirts and trousers, shirts and shorts, dresses and jackets, shoes and boots.

"Pinky, why have you got many clothes for dolls?" I ask.

"Because I have not got my clothes, and I like clothes. They are so beautiful. They are long or short, big or small. They are colourful, too. What is your favourite colour?"

"Red," I say, "it is a very beautiful colour. I like it. And what is yours?"

"I don't know. I like yellow and green, red and blue, pink and white."

Mum comes into the room.

"Are you ready?" she asks.

"Yes, we are," we say.

"Where is Blackie?" asks mum.

"He is in the garden. He is taking his toys," we say.

"Are his toys in the garden?" asks mum.

"Yes, there are a lot of Blackie's toys in the garden," we say.

"What are they?" mum asks.

"They are stones and sticks, frogs and toads," we say. "He likes them. They are his favourite toys."

Mum looks through the window. She can see Blackie in the garden. He is walking in the puddle.

"And he is taking the puddles with him, too," she says.

Now we are in the garden. We have got a lot of bags. We are ready to go and we say:

"Goodbye, our house! Goodbye, everyone!"
