Chapter OneJen loved to ride Bob the Horse. Her friend Dave loved to ride Lily. "Follow me!" Jen called. "Look out!" Dave shouted.
But it was too late. The horses ran right into Mrs. Gray's flower bed.
Jen looked around for Mrs. Gray. "Let's get out of here!" said Dave. Jen knew she should tell Mrs. Gray what they did to her flowers. But maybe she could do it later.
Jen put Bob back in his pen. Then Jen went home.
