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.

Right now he’s thinking about cheese.

3


This is what Ben looks like when he’s thinking of a closet. It’s funny.

Carl is used to it by now. He loves his dog. Ben is Carl’s best friend.

4


Today Carl wants to build a house. He wants a house where they can have fun. Carl draws his new house. It’s going to be big and beautiful. It will have a huge door. Above the door the sign reads: “Carl and Ben”.

5


Carl shows Ben the house. Ben doesn’t like it. There´s only one bed.

6


Ben jumps at Carl. He turns into a bed. And then Carl realises what Ben is trying to tell him. Woof! Woof!

7


Oops. I forgot about that. You want a bed in the house. Yes, you can have a bed.

Carl draws a bed for Ben. Now Ben is happy again. 8


First, Carl finds some wood.

Then he find a pile of nails.

And then a large saw.

9


First, Carls saws a little bit.

Then he saws a bit more

And then he goes on full power.

10


Now Carl is ready to start building. But he can’t find his drawing. He looks everywhere, but it’s gone.

11


Ben has thrown the drawing out. Ben believes he is a rubbish bin. No, Ben! That’s my drawing.

Give it back. I can’t build our house without it.

12


Carl is ready to start hammering, But he’s forgotten something. He doesn’t have a hammer. Carl is sad. Oh no! Where’s my hammer?

13


Ben jumps up and down at Carl. He’s turned into a hammer. Woof! Woof!

Aah! Thanks. Just what I needed

Carl uses Ben as a hammer. 14


The house looks good. Carl and Ben are playing. It’s been a good day, even though Ben’s nose is hurting a bit.

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 house.
