There were five bold and frisky little roly-poly black and

white kittens, and one little striped kitten who was very, very shy. One day, the five bold little roly-poly black and white kittens and the one little roly-poly striped kitten who was very, very shy all sat down and washed their faces and paws with busy little red tongues. They smoothed down their soft baby fur and stroked their whiskers and followed their mother down the ladder from the hayloft—jump, jump, jump!

laughed and laughed until their sides ached. When the kitten stopped laughing and looked around, the frog had vanished. On the pond, ripples spread out in great silver circles. “I really should be getting back to my mother and the others,” said the shy little kitten, “but I don’t know where to find them.” “I’ll show you,” said a strange voice. And out of the bushes bounded a shaggy black puppy. “Oh, thank you,” said the shy little kitten. “Good-bye, mole.” So off they went together, the shy

Run!” he cried. The frog made a leap for the brook. Everyone scrambled after him and tumbled into the

water. “What is it?” asked the shy little kitten. “A bee!” groaned the frog. “I bit a bee!” Then they saw that one side of his mouth was puffed up like a green balloon. Everybody laughed. They couldn’t help it. Even the frog laughed. They all looked so funny as they climbed out of the brook. The shy little kitten stood off to one side. She felt so good that she turned a backward somersault, right there in the long meadow grass. “This is the best day ever,” said the shy little kitten.
