Carl and Ben are out walking The sun is shining. It’s a lovely day.

3


Wow! Check out that hill. It’s perfect.

4


Ben can’t speak. He can only bark. And he can also turn into whatever he’s thinking about. That’s clever. Woof! Woof! Great idea! Let’s build a car.

5


Carl draws a car. It’s a cool car. A proper soapbox car. It has four wheels and two seats, so there’s room for both of them.

6


Carl has found a helmet and a steering wheel. Ben has found four wheels. Now they only need some wood, and they’re ready to start building the car.

7


Carl uses Ben as a saw. Carl is good at sawing. Soon they will have enough planks to build the car

8


Carl starts building. He’s good at hammering. The car will be finished in no time. Carl is about to attach the steering wheel. Hey! Where’s the steering wheel?

9


Ben has taken it. He wants to play. Carl gets annoyed.

Give me the steering wheel. We have to finish our car.

10


Carl attaches the steering wheel. Now the car is ready. Carl and Ben are proud.

It’s beautiful.

11


Carl and Ben are walking up the hill. They are not far from the top now. Soon they will be driving down the hill. That will be fun.

Hey! What’s that sound?

12


Oh no! The tyre has punctured. Now we can’t drive the car. What do we do now?

13


Carl uses Ben as a wheel. Ben is a good wheel. They’re driving really fast.

14


Carl and Ben have reached the bottom of the hill. It was a good drive, even though Ben is hurting all over.

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 car.
