Monkey Madness O

ne day I picked up a flyer in my local shop. On the front was an adorable baby monkey, and it was advertising a monkey sanctuary not too far from where I live. It said that it takes in injured monkeys or ones that can’t be released into the wild because they were born in captivity. I read the whole pamphlet and got quite mad. It seems some people get exotic monkeys as pets and they don’t know how to look after them. I decided to go and visit to see what I could do to help! I was excited about my new cause and phoned all my friends and my sisters. Teresa, Nikki, Ken, Stacie and Chelsea all decided to come with me and, as Lacey jumped into my bag and refused to even consider staying at home, she came along too! When we arrived, we were shown around by a lovely young volunteer called Zoe. She told us all the different monkeys’ stories, like how they ended up at the sanctuary and what type of monkeys they were. She even allowed us to go in and see the baby monkeys who were all in a big play room filled with tyre swings and hammocks. The monkeys were so excited to have new 6

When I visit a monkey sanctuary, I realise that even one person can make a difference! people to play with that they went wild! We had a real blast, but we did some volunteer work too and cleaned out the cages. Lacey loved playing with the monkeys, but got frustrated that she couldn’t swing like they could. Luckily for her some of the monkeys seemed to realise this and played where she could reach. It was very sweet! One monkey in particular took a real liking to Ken. She followed him around and sat on his shoulder for most of the day. Zoe told us her name was Lucy and she had been born here in the sanctuary. Ken laughed as he fed her some fruit and she seemed so happy to have his attention. While the others were playing, I asked Zoe what we could do to help. She told us that they are always after volunteers and that, if we liked, we could adopt a monkey, paying for its


care and visiting it whenever we liked. I thought this was an amazing idea and went to speak to everyone about it. “That’s a great idea!” Teresa said. “I want to adopt Lucy!” Ken added. We all agreed that we would each adopt a monkey and make sure we visited as often as we could. Choosing one was so hard that I ended up adopting three! We were so happy that nine monkeys would be looked after by us! I am now so dedicated to the cause that I have roped in all my other friends to adopt a monkey too, and I am proud to say that, between us, we look after 30 monkeys! People will say one person can’t make a difference, but I disagree. One person can make a big difference in an animal’s life. Whether the love you give is to your pet or to an animal that needs help, remember that it’s up to us to make that difference!

Elle is 13 years old and is an actress just like her older sister Dakota. She has acted in a few movies with her sister, but is now taking leading roles of her own.

African Cats

This documentary, narrated by Samuel L Jackson, is all about two cat families and their adventures. Growing up in the wild isn’t easy, and the babies of the families have a lot of lessons to learn. These adorable big cats have to get to know the ways of the wild – and their mommies are going to teach them!


Meet Our Pets Sequin Posh and beautiful, Sequin loves nothing more than to travel with me. She is admired wherever she goes. I have had her since she was a tiny puppy and I found her, all dirty and scared, in a park. She’s never been dirty since! What a gorgeous and fashionable diva!

Lacey Lacey is my adorable Chihuahua puppy. She loves to run around the house and chew shoes. My friends all love her friendly personality, and I love to carry her around in her designer carriers. She loves everyone and tries to play with all the other pets – even though they sometimes don’t want to!

Blissa Blissa is my beautiful, white kitten. My sisters all have a soft spot for her, and she loves nothing more than to be admired. She loves to wear tiaras but has very particular ideas about what she wears – and will definitely let you know if she doesn’t like the outfit you’ve chosen for her!


My friends, sisters and I all love animals! And now, we’d like you to meet all our pets!

Pets Taffy Taffy is a mother figure to pets and people alike. She loves being outdoors and enjoys taking care of everyone – myself included! She shares her love around, and has a lot of patience for her cute puppies too! It’s hard not to love this little mama! I feel like she’s always been around!

Tawny Tawny is my lovely horse. I’ve had her since she was a filly – and now she has a colt of her own. Tawny and I have had many adventures together and I love to take long rides with her. She has a lovely personality and gives me big hugs when I need them! And her baby is simply adorable!


Skipper and Scrunchie This adorable puppy is Skipper’s best friend. She loves Skipper so much that she is always after her attention – she even dances on her back legs to impress Skipper! Scrunchie can act a little silly – running around in circles and chasing her shadow, and this means she gets along really well with Lacey!

Stacie and Rugby Stacie’s hamster, Rugby, is the complete opposite of her. While Stacie is very sporty, Rugby is super lazy and a complete couch potato, who enjoys watching TV. Stacie bought Rugby a wheel to run in and Rugby decided it was a good place for a nap! But Stacie won’t give up and still believes she’ll get it right one day!

Chelsea and Slipper Chelsea loves her beautiful and posh white rabbit, Slipper. Slipper only eats gourmet food and is very clever and curious. She has a real nose for quality food and loves going to the food market with Chelsea so she can sniff out the goods. She’s the official bunny of the annual farmer’s market parade!

Nikki and Sutton Like his mama, Sutton is fashionable and edgy. Prefering people to pets, Sutton loves to attend fashion shows – where he is very talented at choosing winners. Sutton loves to be shown off in fancy carriers and is a real trend-setter at doggy fashion week. 14

Pets Teresa with Tika and Tiki Teresa always takes in strays – she has a real soft spot for all animals. But Tika and Tiki are her favourites! They are super cute and cuddly and love nothing more than hugs and snuggles. They like to sleep in all sorts of places – including Teresa’s hair! Tika and Tiki love to play and are never apart, they are best friends!

Ken and Hudson Hudson’s daddy was a very brave and famous police dog, and Hudson wants to be just like him – so much so that he will save anyone and anything even if they don’t need saving! Hudson is a great companion for Ken, because he loves sports too, and they can play together for hours!

Ryan, Raquelle and Ruff When Ryan chose a pet, he thought Ruff would be tough, but she’s turned out to be the complete opposite! She’s very sweet and shy and often hides behind Ryan’s legs. She loves Raquelle though and even though Ryan won’t admit it, he loves her personality more than if she was braver!

A Ballet Teacher O


ne day, I went to ballet class and, while I was stretching, my teacher arrived, looking harassed. “Barbie, can I speak to you please?” she asked. “Sure,” I said, getting up and following her out into the hall. We walked down the corridor and she asked me to look into one of the rooms. I opened the door and saw a huge group of little girls running around and screaming! “The kids’ ballet teacher is off sick, and I don’t know what to do. I have a class to teach. I was hoping you might help me out by stepping in for the day. You’re my best dancer, or else I wouldn’t have asked you,” she said. “Ok,” I said, thinking it might be fun, “let me have a go then.” I opened the door and stepped inside. About twenty little faces turned to look at me. “Hello,” I said, “My name is Barbie and I will be your teacher for the day.” “Who cares?” shouted one little girl, and the class carried on running around. “Calm down,” I shouted, “Listen to me for a second.” But it was no use. The girls were not responding at all! I spent the next ten minutes trying to get their attention, but to no avail. I decided to step out into the hall and think. The quiet helped a bit and soon I had come up with an idea. I ran into my teacher’s class and grabbed her CD player. “Is everything OK Barbie?” she shouted after me as I headed out the door, “It’s super!” I shouted back. When I returned, the girls were climbing on the rails and

Stories playing catch. I plugged the CD player in and popped in my favourite track to dance to. I turned the music up, found a space and started dancing. I did my most impressive moves, and one by one, the girls all stopped to watch. By the end you could hear a pin drop. When I was done, they all erupted at once. “That was awesome!” shouted one. “How do you do that?” shouted another. “If you all keep quiet and calm down, I’ll show you,” I told them. And that seemed to do the trick. I decided to show them a move that looked really cool and they all tried their hardest. Some of them even managed to get it right after a few tries! I was quite proud of them! Just then, my teacher popped her head into the door. “Your parents are here,” she told the girls, and they all ran out shouting, “Thank you teacher Barbie!” and chatting excitedly about their new moves. “It seems you have a magic touch with the kids,” my teacher said. “You have no idea,” I answered, completely exhausted. Later that night I was speaking to Teresa on the phone. I told her all about my class and we laughed at the real version of the story. “I couldn’t tell my teacher that the kids wouldn’t listen to me,” I said, “she was so

proud of how great I was with them!” “Well, you managed OK, but I think we can both see that teaching kids is a lot harder than it looks!” “Yes,” I said, “the only problem now is that my teacher has asked me to step in whenever they need a substitute teacher!” Teresa burst out laughing. “Who knows,” she said, “maybe it will get easier next time!” “I sure hope so, ” I said.

The End



Awesome Orang-utans The orang-utan is a big, reddishcoloured ape that lives in the rainforests of Asia. It is very endangered. The orang-utan’s arms are very long – in fact they are twice as long as its legs. They are very clever and use tools they find in nature (like sticks) to build things, including nests that they sleep in at night. They eat mostly fruit. The orang-utan mother has only one baby every 8 years or so and looks after each baby completely for two years – feeding, cleaning and carrying it around. Did you know? In Malay, orang-utan means ‘man of the forest’.

Tawny’s Tale

Choose one word from each box to complete this story about my horse, Tawny. One day I rode Tawny to the park/forest/beach. It was a lovely day and we stopped to have a picnic/swim/nap. All of a sudden, we heard some children playing/laughing/talking and went to see what they were doing. It was a birthday/ princess/dress-up party and the kids were very excited to see Tawny. They all gathered around to pat/hug/look at her, and Tawny looked at me as if to ask if she could go and play with them. We spent the afternoon giving the children rides. It was fun/ exciting/amazing and Tawny was everyone’s hero! The End 30
