Lulu and the Magical Cat
One day Lulu was reading about cats. Something she read is that cats can jump very high up from the ground. While Lulu was reading she sneezed. Ah-choo. When she sneezed, a cat suddenly appeared on top of her book. Lulu asked the cat where it came from. The cat said that it was a magical cat.
And whenever somebody reading the book sneezes, it appears in front of them. Lulu was amazed. She wanted to pretend that she was a cat. The magical cat said that it could show her how. Lulu decided to make a cat costume. She took out some pajamas that had cat designs on it.
Then she put on a headband with two triangles on it that was shaped like cat ears. And she used a washable marker to draw whiskers on her cheeks. The magical cat said that Lulu also needed a tail. Lulu went and got a very long sock. She stuffed the socks with some paper, and tied the sock closed.
Then she tied the sock to the bottom of her back, and now it looked like a tail. The magical cat said that she was now ready, and it could show her how to pretend to be a cat. The magical cat showed Lulu how to walk on four legs. Lulu tried doing that.
Then the magical cat showed Lulu how to jump up on top of the refrigerator. It crouched down on its back legs, looked up at the top of the refrigerator, and then jumped up. Then it landed on top of the refrigerator. Next it was Lulu’s turn. She bent down on her legs, and she looked at where the magical cat was.
Then she jumped up, but she only reached the kitchen counter. The magical cat told Lulu that she did a good job. Then Lulu wanted to try being a cat outside. The magical cat and Lulu went out and decided to go to the park. When they reached the park, the magical cat showed Lulu how to run fast and hide.
The magical cat ran under a bench, and Lulu followed it. Then the magical cat ran under the slide, and Lulu followed it. The magical cat was very fast, and Lulu also ran very fast. Then they saw a small tree with branches closer to the ground. The magical cat bent down and then bounced up high and landed on a branch.
Lulu also bent down and then jumped up and she landed on a branch below the magical cat. From there they could look and see all around the playground. They saw a boy at the top of the slide getting ready to go down it. Then all of a sudden they heard the boy crying in surprise.
He had gone down the slide, but his shirt had become caught, and now he was stuck on the slide. Lulu and the magical cat jumped down. They ran over to the slide. Then they climbed up on top of the slide. Lulu could see that there was a thread of the boy’s shirt caught on the edge of the slide.
Lulu asked the magical cat to help with its sharp claws. The magical cat reached over to the boy’s shirt, and used its sharp claws to cut the thread. Then the boy’s shirt was not stuck anymore, and he was able to slide down. Lulu thanked the magical cat. Then it was time to go back.
Lulu and the magical cat went back home. When they got there, the magical cat said that Lulu had to sneeze again for it to go into the book again. Lulu didn’t need to sneeze, but the magical cat said that it could help. It tickled Lulu’s nose with its tail, and Lulu sneezed. Ah-choo.
Then all of a sudden the magical cat disappeared, and Lulu put away the book. Lulu got ready for dinner. After dinner she drew a picture of her and the magical cat sitting in a tree. Then she got ready to go to bed and brushed her teeth. She laid down and started dreaming about being a cat, as she went to sleep, slowly slowly slowly.
