Mina’s house was full of books
they were everywhere
and not just on bookshelves and bedside tables where books usually are
but at all sorts of places where books usually aren’t
worse still her parents were always bringing in home more books
they kept buying books and borrowing books and ordering books from catalogues
Mina’s parents love to read
they read at breakfast, at lunch,dinner
Mina on the other hand
thought all those books are rather in the way
one morning Mina called for her cat
but Max didn’t come
where are you?
there he was
on top of all the books her parents kept buying her
and she kept refusing to read
what are you doing up there?
I’ll get you down
this is so not happening
oh no!oh no!
不 不！ 不！
住手 停下 大家都回到书里去
why won’t you go in?
为 什 么 你 不 进 去？
why won’t they stay in the books?
B is for book
don’t even think about it,doodle
that’s not my book
Ok but if this was your book,would you go back in?
好吧 如果这本是关于你的书 你会回去吗
and what about others?
Will they go back too?
Well they wouldn’t go in my book
if that’s what you’re asking.
So how do I know which is your book?
Why won’t you help me?
figure it out for yourself, kiddo!
I just want to go home
but I don’t know which is my book
Is this one?
what did it say?
I don’t know
just read it and find out
you can’t read
I can’t believe I’m gonna do this
This is so dull
once upon a time in a land far far away there lived three little pigs
Does that sound familar?
There’s no pigs in my book
Wait! Read that again!
Once upon a time in a land far far away there lived three little pigs
That’s all start our page
That’s our book!
A is for
This is my stop
But…What about my book?
We’ll just have to keep reading until we find it
池塘里有一群鸭子 它们呱 呱 呱地叫着
Now in the forest lived a wolf
Oh! That’s me
Deep in the jungle hide high up on the trees with a band of chattery monkeys
somebody stop those monkeys
Come on monkeys! Give me the book
好啦 小猴们 把书给我吧
Deep in the jubgle high up on the tree with a band of chattery monkeys
So…are there going to be any more interruptions?
Now where were we?
Once upon a time
in a land
One by one
Mina began reading all of her books
And one by one the creatures find out where they belong
This was much too much for the poor
the elephant lifted his trunk…trunk
sleeping in the cave was a great
The soldier raised his sword
and they all lived happily ever after
ooh! Come here catty
噢 小猫咪 快过来
Where were you hiding?
Now it’s just you and me Max.
Do you think we will ever see them again?
What do you think they are all up to now?
When Mina’s parents came in that afternoon
They couldn’t believe their eyes
Not because the curtains were gone
and the dishes were broken and the table legs were all chewed up
But because there
in the middle of the room
She was reading a book
