The moon had gone behind a cloud and there weren't many stars in the sky.
It was a dark night. I saw a glow in my neighbors kitchen. I thought he was
having a midnight snack so I went back to my bed.
Soon, there was a burning smell in the air and I suspected something was
wrong. At once, I jumped out of bed and went downstairs to investigate. I
saw fire coming out of my neighbors kitchen. Instinctively, I shouted "Fire!
Fire!" But there was no one nearby to hear my shouts for help.
I rushed into my house, called the Fire Department and went back to my
neighbors house. I rang the doorbell, banged on the door and called out my
neighbors name but there was no response. I managed to break into the
house and rescued a cat and a rabbit.
I tried to throw buckets of water through the kitchen window but it was no
use; the fire was too strong. Luckily, a fire engine arrived and the firemen
put out the fire. They arrived in the nick of time as the fire was going to
spread to the other rooms in the house.
When my neighbor came back, he was sad because his kitchen was a wreck
but he thanked me for calling the Fire Department and for saving his pets.
He wanted to give me some money as a reward but I did not accept it.
Weeks later, my neighbor repaired and restored his kitchen. He invited me
to his new kitchen and there he gave me a medal that he had specially
ordered from a factory. It made me very happy.
fire ! fire!
A duck tale
The bright morning rays shone through the bedroom curtains onto Farmer Huang's pillow;
making the room hot and stuffy. Farmer Huang is not an early riser but the heat woke up
him. He hurriedly got up and started to head for his poultry farm. He had invested all his
money in ducks.
Farmer Huang got into his lorry that was loaded with ducks in cages and his two workers,
Bill and Jim. Their first stop was City Primary School. Upon reaching the school gate, the
lorry skidded and punctured a tyre. Farmer Huang left his workers to change the tyre while
he went into the school canteen to hand over some ducks.
Meanwhile, a boy had crept up the lorry and opened some of the cages. Jim happened to look
up; the boy jumped down from the lorry and ran into the school compound. The ducks were
escaping! Jim and Bill hurriedly tried to get the ducks back into the cages but their efforts
were in vain. There was a great commotion ... ducks quacking, workers shouting.
Where was the naughty boy? He was at the school gate letting some ducks into the school.
On hearing the noise, many children came out of their classrooms and were watching the
funny sight ... two men chasing ducks which were quacking, waddling and flapping their wings
which in turn sent down feathers floating in the air! It was hilarious.
Farmer Huang came back just in time to catch hold of the boy. He then went after the
ducks. He made a funny quacking sound and the ducks began to come to him. He happily put
them back into their cages, changed the punctured tyre and drove off ... leaving the boy in
the hands of the school principal.

Mouse and His Bug
Once there was a mouse
who lived in a great big house.
The mouse had a pet bug
which lived in his mug.
The mouse wasn't very happy
when his bug jumped into his favourite rug.
The mouse made the bug stay in his mug
and forbade it to go near the rug.
The bug just wouldn't listen
and jumped onto the rug
This time, the mouse was furious
and squashed it with his mug
One bright and sunny day, I felt like fishing. So I
packed what I needed ... fishing rod, hooks, weights
and of course, worms for bait.
When I reached the jetty, I put a worm on the hook
and threw the line in and waited for the fish to bite.
I was disappointed when I did not catch anything
after waiting for three hours.
I pulled in the line and to my surprise, there was a
small fish at the end of the line. The fish was so
small that I did not feel any tug on the line.
I was even more surprised when the fish started to
talk, "Let me go or I will turn you into a frog!" I was
so startled that I just stared at it. The next
moment, I was already a frog ...
