Little Max took two chocolate biscuits from the tin and popped them in a bag for the journey. He was off to the jungle.
There were dangerous animals there so he’d need a big stick. In the shed, he found a bamboo cane which was perfect. He’d need a hat. He saw Daddy’s cap on a hook. He stood on tiptoes and knocked it down with his stick. It was a bit big but it would do.
In case it was hot he’d borrow that paper fan Mummy bought in Spain last year, and it might rain so he’d need his rubber boots. He’d take the torch from the hall cupboard for after dark.
He needed a fellow traveller. Sophie was too big and always laughed when he planned adventures, but Teddy Bear hadn’t been out for ages. He’d love to come. Max wasn’t sure where the jungle was. It was probably near the bottom of the garden so off he went down the path.
Daddy called from the window ‘Where are you going, Max?’
‘To the jungle’ Max shouted.
‘Wouldn’t you rather go to the swings and get an ice cream?’ said Daddy.
Suddenly all thoughts of the jungle were forgotten!
