What do garden monkeys think about all day long? Chasing squirrels!
Once there was a garden monkey who watered the flowers in a very
special garden. He was carefully tending to the beautiful flowers,
when all of a sudden, whoosh! Down fell lots of leaves from a tree as
it’s trunk shook… and with a flash a squirrel zipped up the branches
and then stopped immediately to eat a nut while peering down at the
garden monkey. The garden monkey was caught in the squirrel’s spell.
He sat stunned next to the flowers. He imagined a great big elephant
who would lift him up high into the tree so he could chase that
squirrel! The garden monkey closed his eyes tight and wished very
hard. Suddenly the hose began to wiggle. It slid out of the garden
monkey’s hands like a snake, but he didn’t notice because all he could
think about was chasing the squirrel. The hose moved around magically
on the ground until it carefully rose up above the flowers – and then
as high as the tree. It had formed into a very large elephant, trunk
and all! The garden monkey opened his eyes and to his delight, there
stood a magical elephant! The garden monkey grabbed on to it’s tail
and began to climb up the elephant. The squirrel was confused, he had
never seen a hose turn into an elephant before. He sat stunned, caught
in the elephant’s spell. The garden monkey quickly crawled up the
elephant’s trunk which lifted him up to the tree – and kerplunk!
Leaves flew everywhere, branches shook while a major squeal was heard
throughout the neighborhood. The garden monkey emerged, slid down the
hose and continued on watering the flowers – but this time with a
furry tail sticking out of his pocket!
