The Fine Good Show

★ The Fine Good Show Story :

A little girl and a little boy started down the road together to take a walk. They met a dog.

“Good morning, Dog,” said the little girl. “Bow-wow!” answered the dog.

“Come and take a walk with us, Dog,” said the little boy.

So they all went down the road together.

Pretty soon they met a cat.

“Good morning, Cat,” said the little boy. “Miaouw!” answered the cat.

“Come and take a walk with us, Cat,” said the little girl. So they all went down the road together.

Pretty soon they met a rooster.

“Good morning, Rooster,” said the little girl. “Cock-a-doodle-doo!” answered the rooster.

“Come and take a walk with us, Rooster,” said the little boy.

So they all went down the road together.

Pretty soon they met a duck.

“Good morning, Duck,” said the little boy. “Quack, quack!” answered the duck.

“Come and take a walk with us, Duck,” said the little girl.

So they all went down the road talking merrily with one another.

Pretty soon they saw a little pinky-white pig with a funny little curly tail.

“Good morning, Pig,” said the little girl. “Grunt, grunt!” answered the pig.

“Come and take a walk with us, Pig,” said the little boy.

So they all went down the road together.

Pretty soon they came to a pasture.

In the pasture was a nice, old, red cow.

“Good morning, Cow,” said the little boy. “Moo, moo!” answered the cow.

“Come and take a walk with us,” said the little girl.

But the cow shook her head; she couldn’t open the pasture bars.

“We will let down the bars for you, Cow,” said the little boy and the little girl.

So they let down the bars, and the dog, and the cat, and the rooster, and the duck, and the little white pig with the curly tail, and the little boy, and the little girl, all went in to see the cow.

The little girl climbed on the cow’s back, and the little boy climbed on the cow’s back, and the dog jumped on the cow’s back, and the cat jumped on the cow’s neck, and the rooster flew up on the cow’s head, and the little white pig with the curly tail, and the duck, walked behind the cow, and they all went down the road together just as happy as they could be.

Pretty soon they met a carriage with two women in it.

“Mercy on me!” said the two women. “What’s this!”

“This is a fine, good show,” answered the little girl.

“Well, I should think it was!” said the two women. “It is a beautiful show.”

“Thank you,” said the little boy.

“Good-by,” said the two women.

“Good-by,” said the little girl.

So the cow, carrying the little boy, and the little girl, and the dog, and the cat, and the rooster, with the little white pig with the curly tail, and the duck, walking along behind, all went down the road together.

Pretty soon they met a wagon with three men in it.

“Well! Well! Well!” said the three men. “Just look! What’s all this?”

“This is a fine, good show,” said the little boy, bowing very politely.

“Indeed it is!” said the three men. “It’s great!”

“Thank you,” said the little boy, “I am pleased that you like it.”

“Good-by,” said the little girl.

So the cow, carrying the little girl, and the little boy, and the dog, and the cat, and the rooster, with the little white pig with the curly tail, and the duck, walking behind, all went down the road together.

Pretty soon they came to a store. The Store Man stood out in front of his store.

“Good morning, Mr. Store Man,” said the little boy, “I have a little silver piece in my pocket.”

“Good morning!” said the Store Man. “What can I do for you?”

“We want to buy some things for our Show,” said the little boy.

“I’m glad of that!” said the Store Man.

So the little boy jumped down, and the little girl jumped down, and the dog jumped down, and the cat jumped down, and the rooster flew down.

“We want to buy a little corn for our cow and our pig,” said the little boy.

“And we want to buy a little wheat for our rooster and our duck,” said the little girl.

“And we want to buy a little meat for our dog,” said the little boy.

“And we want to buy a little milk for our cat,” said the little girl.

“And we want to buy some great, long sticks of candy for us!” said the little boy and the little girl together. “I hope you have some.”

The Store Man took the money and brought out all the things.

The cow and the little white pig with the curly tail ate the corn; the rooster and the duck ate the wheat; the dog ate the meat, and the cat drank the milk, and the little girl and the little boy ate the great, long sticks of candy.

“Good-by, Mr. Store Man,” said the little girl.

“Good-by, Mr. Store Man,” said the little boy.

“Good-by, all of you,” answered the Store Man.

So the little girl, and the little boy, and the dog, and the cat, and the rooster, and the duck, and the little pig with the curly tail, all went back up the road again.

Pretty soon they came to the pasture. The cow walked in.

“Good-by, Cow and Dog and Cat and Rooster and Duck and Pig!” shouted the little boy.

“Good-by, Pig and Duck and Rooster and Cat and Dog and Cow!” called the little girl.

“Moo-moo!” answered the cow.

“Grunt-grunt!” answered the pig.

“Miaouw, miaouw!” answered the cat.

“Quack, quack!” answered the duck.

“Cock-a-doodle-doo!” answered the rooster. “Bow-wow!” answered the dog.

And the little boy and the little girl put up the bars and ran back home as fast as they could go.
