Perfect for reading to young children or for you to print on your home printer for children to read themselves.
In the High Street of the town of Froomdale stood many shops. There was a Butcher's, a Cake Shop, a Florist, a Greengrocers and opposite the Bank stood 'Auntie Meg's Marvellous Menagerie of Perfect Pets'.
It was in fact, a Pet Shop.
Auntie Meg considered herself to be everybody's favourite Auntie, and the wide beaming smile she gave to everyone who entered her shop made them feel a part of a large family.
She sold puppies, kittens, budgies, hamsters, Parrots, Guinea pigs and Mice, Stick Insects, Goldfish, Chinchillas and last but not least Rabbits.
I think she would have even sold an Elephant if her shop had been big enough!
It was a very busy shop; especially at weekends when customers could be seen coming out carrying boxes and bags, bird cages and fishtanks with all manner of pets inside them.
One sunny day, two children Oscar and Amy came into the shop with their Mum & Dad. A little brass bell tinkled above the door as they entered.
'Good Morning!' Auntie Meg said, beaming a great big smile, ' what can I do for you?'
The children were very excited and jumped up and down at the counter. They looked excitedly into the many fishtanks and cages which contained lots of different animals.
'We'd like to buy a pet please,' the Father said, 'what would you recommend?'
Auntie Meg thought for a moment: 'Well,' she said, 'it all depends on what kind of a pet you have in mind.
We've got lots to choose from.'
'I think they've got their minds set on a Rabbit!' the Mother said, 'do you have any rabbits in stock?'
'I'm afraid I only have the one left, but, I've lots of Hamsters, Guinea pigs and little mice; even a brown rat if you'd like one!'
'A rat?! Goodness me, no!' replied the Mother, 'ugh, horrible things!'
'Would you like to see the Rabbit?' Auntie Meg asked.
“Please! Please!' Oh, yes please!' the children shouted excitedly. Auntie Meg took the children over to the cage where the Rabbit was kept.
The Rabbit was very cute and just like a fluffy ball of fur with long ears and bright brown eyes. It had a little fluffy white bobtail.
