The Adventures of Kathleen the Great and Mark the Meak 英勇凱薩琳與害羞馬克歷險記

"Family Fun" 天倫之樂

"Wake up, Mark!" Kathleen yelled as she knocked loudly on Mark's door. "Today we are going to visit my relatives. We don't want to be late."

"Is that today? I almost forgot," Mark answered. "I hope they have good food. I'm really hungry." Kathleen and Mark walked outside to wait for the bus.

"I can't wait to see my family. We haven't had a reunion in a long time," Kathleen said as they waited. "What's wrong? You don't look so good."

"I hate buses. I hope I don't get carsick," Mark answered.

"You'll be fine. Hurry up, the bus is here!"

When Mark and Kathleen got to Kathleen's family's house, the whole family ran out to meet them. Everyone was happy and hugging, even Mark, who didn't know anyone.

"Wow, there are so many people," Mark said, looking a little afraid. "How many cousins do you have?" But when he turned around, Kathleen was already off laughing with one of her aunts.

"We mice always have big families," answered Kathleen's mother. "Come inside, relax and have something to eat."

Mark got excited when he thought about food, but he never got a chance to eat.

"Come on!" Kathleen said. "My uncle's taking us fishing."
