BEST FRIENDS Along comes Alex!

bibi Booklet 7


Along comes Alex! It is a perfect day to go ice-skating. The sun is shining. The ice is glinting. Nobody is staying at home. Even the penguins are whizzing over the ice on their waddling feet. Lucas is still a little shaky on his feet. But Isabella races like a whirlwind. As usual, Alex is in high spirits. Ruby, the seal, pokes her round head out of the water. She lies down in the warm sunshine and watches the penguins. Ice-skating is not for seals. But sunbathing is!

“Look what I can do!” exclaims Isabella, skating past first on one leg and then on the other. Lucas is excited. He carefully raises his right leg in the air. He almost succeeds. Then, along comes Alex at top speed. He whirls, twirls and spins around three times.

Buuuuump! The pair lie flat on their stomachs. Fortunately, there’s no harm done.

“Look what I can do!” says Isabella, skating backwards in a circle. Lucas tries to copy her. He’s doing quite well. Then, along comes Alex. Forwards, backwards, on one leg and then in a criss-cross pattern, he cruises around and is heading straight for Ruby. Be careful, dive for cover! Just missed. “Look what I can do!” calls Isabella again, hopping with a shriek of delight over a large hole in the ice.

Much too dangerous, Lucas thinks to himself. Then, along comes Alex. He can no longer stop himself. As straight as an arrow, he heads for the hole in the ice, gets ready to jump, bends his knees – and lands head over heels in the water. What a splash! Water sprays everywhere, and even Ruby, on her sunny spot, gets wet. “Oh no! Alex!” his friends cry out in shock. But Alex has already sunk underneath the water. One minute passes. Two minutes. Three. Isabella and Lucas start to worry. Even Ruby crawls closer and peers with concern into the water.

Then, up comes Alex! He is juggling a magnificent fish on his head: “Look what I’ve brought with me!” Alex’s friends are impressed. What a beautiful fish. Everybody is allowed to hold him and skate a circuit. Then, the fish wants to go back in the water. After all, he is a fish. And tomorrow is another day…
