Carl can’t think of anything. Everything bores him.

Aw. What should we do?

Carl has found a wooden plank. He uses Ben as a saw. Ben is a good at helping out.

Perfect. It’s a good tree. Let’s build our swing here.

Ben tries out the new swing. It’s a good swing.

Hey! It’s my turn now!

Now Carl is riding the swing. The rope is about to break.

Oh no!

BUMP! Carl fell down. It hurt.

Aw! Now what do we do?

Carl is back on the swing. He’s happy. It’s a good swing. And Ben works well as a rope.
