Carl and Ben are best friends. They’re out in the garden. It’s windy. Great weather.

Woof!

3


Ben is almost blowing away. Carl needs to hold on to his ears. Carl gets an idea.

4


Ben can do magic. He can turn into whatever he’s thinking about. Carl uses Ben as a kite. Bent is flying up in the air. It’s fun to play with kites. 5


Ben doesn’t want to be a kite anymore. He wants to go down now.

Woof?

Come on, Ben. Just a little more.

6


Ben is glad to be back on the ground. Carl is bored. What are they going to do now? 7


Carl spots a leaf sailing in a puddle.

That’s it! Let’s build a boat. It needs a big sail.

Woof.

8


Carl is sowing a sail for their boat. He uses Ben as a sowing machine. It will be a good sail. 9


The boat is ready. Carl and Ben are proud. It’s a lovely boat. Carl pushes the boat into the water.

10


Carl and Ben are sailing. The boat is good. It’s fun to go sailing. Carl is playing at pirates. Yo-ho-ho. And a bottle of rum!

11


Carl uses Ben as binoculars. They spot an island.

An island! Let’s sail over there.

12


Oh no! Now what do we do?

The sail blows away. Carl is not happy.

13


Carl uses Ben as an oar. Now they can sail over to the island. Bent is a good oar.

14


Carl and Ben are sitting on the island. They’ve made a bonfire. It’s been a good day, even though Ben is a bit wet.

15


Carl and Ben are best friends. Ben is Carl’s dog. He’s not like the other dogs. Ben is a little crazy. He can turn into whatever he’s thinking about. Today they want to build a boat.
