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

By Mike Kearney  /  STAFF WRITER

Meet Kathleen the mouse and Mark the elephant. Kathleen is very brave and likes adventure, but Mark is very shy and scared of many things. But friends stay together, so Mark follows Kathleen wherever she goes. Sometimes they get into some very sticky situations.


Big top POP! 馬戲團驚爆

Mark and Kathleen were wandering through town when they saw a circus tent.

"Uncle Earl, my long lost uncle, works for a traveling circus," Mark said. "Let's see if he's there."

They went into the tent but didn't see Uncle Earl anywhere.

All of a sudden a young kid threw peanuts at Mark.

"What was that?" Mark said.

"He wants you to do a trick," Kathleen said. "He thinks you're part of the show."

Mark didn't know any tricks but he was hungry. He started doing jumping jacks and a crowd of people gathered.

"Look at all the food you're getting," Kathleen said. "Do a somersault."

He did and the crowd cheered. They threw peanuts, popcorn and chocolates at him. Mark began sucking up the food through his trunk.

"Delicious," Mark said. "Uh-oh."

Mark's voice sounded like his nose was stuffed up. He had just sucked up a pack of chewing gum!

"Something's stuck," Kathleen said. "Try blowing out your trunk."

Mark did and a big bubble formed. Then there was a large pop!

"The elephant has a gun!" a lady yelled.

Everyone was really scared. An elephant wearing a top hat came in. It was Uncle Earl!

"What's going on?" Earl said…
