The Tales of Daisy Moo-Cow Lettuce’s story By A. Collison Once upon a time, there was a big, big field. And in the middle of the big, big field… There was a big, big moo-cow called Daisy And she had a friend who was a teeny, weeny little mouse called Bramble. And they lived with their friends Lettuce the rabbit and Pollen the Hedgehog, in the field next door to Mr McGregor’s Farm. One morning, Lettuce woke up very early. “I’m hungry”, he thought. So whilst Daisy, Bramble and Pollen were all sleeping, Lettuce hopped away to find some food. Lettuce hopped right across the field until eventually, he came to a fence. On the other side of the fence were some delicious carrots and lettuces growing. “Mmmm”, he thought “I’m so hungry. I might have some”. Then Lettuce remembered that these vegetables were growing in Mr McGregor’s garden. “He won’t mind if I just nibble on a few of them”, thought Lettuce. So Lettuce hopped through the fence, and started nibbling. First he nibbled on some Lettuce. Then he nibbled on some carrots. Suddenly, from out of nowhere appeared Mr McGregor! “What are you doing you pesky rabbit!?” he exclaimed. Mr McGregor got out his sack. “Come here you!” he shouted. Lettuce started to run, but Mr McGregor was too fast for him. Mr McGregor caught Lettuce in his bag and took him to his shed. “Mmm… I will enjoy some rabbit stew for my tea tonight” he said, and threw Lettuce into the shed. Meanwhile, back in the field, Daisy, Bramble and Pollen had all woken up. “Where’s Lettuce this morning?” asked Daisy. “I saw him leave very early this morning”, replied Pollen. “I think he was heading over to Mr McGregor’s farm” “Shall we go and have a look?” asked Bramble. So off they all went. Daisy Moo-cow, Bramble and Pollen all arrived at the fence. “Look” said Pollen “A lot of the carrots and lettuces have been eaten. I wonder if Lettuce has been here?” “Well if he has, he’s very naughty” said Daisy Moo-cow. “He shouldn’t be eating Mr McGregor’s food” “Help help” “What’s that!?” asked Pollen. “It’s Lettuce!” exclaimed Daisy Moo-cow. “I will go and find him” said Bramble, and off he scuttled. He scuttled past the vegetables, and past the farm… And soon he arrived at the shed. “Lettuce?” he whispered “Are you there?” “Bramble? Is that you? I’m inside! Please help me!!” Bramble saw a small hole in the side of the shed, and squeezed through it. Bramble hurried over to the sack, that was wiggling about. “Lettuce! Are you alright?” he asked “N..n…no!” sobbed Lettuce. “Mr McGregor says he’s going to turn m…m…me into r…r..rabbit STEW!!” “It’s ok, I’ll get you out!” replied Bramble, and started chewing through the sack. Soon enough, Lettuce was out of the bag. “Oh THANK YOU” cried Lettuce. “Come on” replied Bramble. “Let’s leave before Mr McGregor gets back”. So off they ran. They ran out of the shed…. …past the farm yard…. …and soon arrived back at the fence. “Oh Lettuce. What HAVE you been doing?” asked Daisy Moo- cow. “I’m so…so…sorry” replied Lettuce. “I was so hungry, and then Mr McGregor threw me in the shed to make me into rabbit stew!!” “Well… that just shows you Lettuce. You shouldn’t go stealing what isn’t yours.” “I know. I promise I will never ever do it again.” “Ok” said Daisy. “Let’s go home”. And soon, Daisy Moo-cow, Bramble, Pollen and Lettuce all arrived back home to the big, big field. And do you know what? Mr McGregor never got his rabbit stew after all!
