Celie and Iris got a new puppet theater today as a belated birthday present. They wrote and performed their first three-act play: Mousie and Bunny — Fights and Friendship.
Dramatis personae: Mousie and Bunny
One day Mousie went to a puppet show and he met Bunny.
Bunny: I am the biggest bunny in the world!
Mousie: And I am the squeakiest thing in the world and I like to steal cheese.
Bunny: You are mischievous and I say STOP or I will put a trap out.
Mousie: If you do, I will put out a bigger trap.
Bunny: You are so bad!
They fight and start crying: Boo hoo.
Bunny: It’s your birthday Mousie and because your mommy is sick I’m going to make you a big cake.
Mousie: I’m going to bring the knives and forks and everything.
Bunny: I am going to give you the best birthday party of all.
Mousie and Bunny: YIPPEE!!!
They embrace and kiss.
One day Bunny went to the Chocolate Moose store. Then he saw his friend Mousie.
Bunny: Hey Mousie, why don’t we get chocolate with rainbow sprinkles.
Mousie: I want chocolate with chocolate sprinkles.
Bunny: No! You should have chocolate with rainbow sprinkles, like me!
Mousie: No! You should have chocolate with chocolate sprinkles, like me!
Both shout: You’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re wrong!
And cry: boo hoo hoo.
