"Watch me fly," shouted Doomore.
"I’m the flying dinosaur."
Doomore liked to jump off his favorite mountain.
He could jump backwards . . . .
He could do flips . . . .
And he could do double twists . . . .
But Doomore wasn’t a very good flying dinosaur. He always flew down - straight down.He always landed in a lake and he always made a big SPLASH that soaked all the animals in the valley.
Doomore’s friend, a canary named Chipper, could do loops.
Doomore wished that he could do loops.
Chipper could float in the air, and
she could soar up high.
But Doomore always flew down - straight down.
He always landed in a lake, and he
always made a big SPLASH that
soaked all the animals in the valley.
The animals didn’t like being soaked. But they didn’t complain.
Doomore kept jumping and the animals kept getting showered with water.This bothered the animals. But they didn't say anything.The animals became more and more irritated.
Soon, all the animals grunted and grumbled and growled. They were ANGRY! They all started to move towards Doomore.
Doomore was frightened. He started to run away as fast as he could go. Plump plump plump plump plump.
All the animals chased after him.Doomore ran far ahead.
Doomore stopped to hide inside a barn. The farm animals stared at him . . . .
"I have to hide," explained Doomore. "Some angry animals are chasing me. I wasn’t mean to them. I only showered them with water."
Chipper arrived just in time to say, “Let’s help Doomore hide.” The farm animals agreed to help.
“Put your head in the loft,” said the cow. Doomore turned his head and put it in the loft.
All the animals kicked straw into the air. They kicked at a junk pile. Junk flew into the air. A can of paint came open and splashed against the barn. Paint, junk, and straw filled the air and rained down on Doomore and the barn.
“Super job,” said Chipper. That doesn't look like Doomore. That doesn’t even look like a barn.
They will NEVER find him!”
But on the other side of the fence, things looked much different.
