One bright summer morning Charlie woke up. He did not want a cold bottom any more because he lived in the grass which was cold.
So Charlie decided to visit his friend Lenny the lion.
Lenny had no sign of Charlie’s knickers.
Just then Kerry the kangaroo bounced along the path. Jerry had a new hat, it was spotty and pink. They looked just like Charlie’s knickers. Charlie asked where he got them from?
Jerry said he got them from the open meadow near hare’s hole.
“They are my pants” said Charlie “they are not a hat!”
Charlie’s bottom was once again warm but Jerry’s head was now cold.
Well done Finley, what an excellent story!
