CHAPTER 1

THERE ONCE WAS A BOY WHO LIVED IN A TREE HE NEVER CAME DOWN, NOW THAT WAS STRANGE TO ME

SO I TOLD MY MOTHER TO GO GET HIM DOWN SHE LOOKED AT ME FUNNY AND STARTED TO FROWN

SHE SAID "GO UP THERE WITH HIM, SEE WHAT IT'S LIKE

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF "ARE YOU KIDDING ...

WHY THAT'S QUITE A HIKE!!"

I WENT OUT AND LOOKED WAY UP IN THE LEAVES THAT BOY STARTED LAUGHING AND STARTED TO TEASE

WAY UP THIS TREE" SO I SAID, WAY UP THIS TREE" SO I SAID,

"OH YEAH, YOU JUST WAIT AND SEE!!"

NOW FOR MY AGE I AM REALLY SMALL I THOUGHT I'M NOT SURE I CAN DO THIS ...

WHAT IF I FALL!!

I STARTED TO CLIMB UP THAT TREE SO HIGH THEN I FELL DOWN AND STARTED TO CRY

THE BOY LAUGHED SO HARD AND IT MADE ME SO MAD

I WON'T, NO I WON'T

STAY DOWN HERE SO SAD SO UP AGAIN I CLIMBED THAT GREAT BIG TREE THIS TIME I FELL DOWN AND SCRAPED MY KNEE

I CLIMBED AND I CLIMBED AND I DIDN'T LOOK DOWN I HELD ON SO TIGHT TO THAT TREE SO ROUND

I CLIMB AND CLIMB FOREVER SO HIGH UNTIL I FINALLY REACHED THE TOP WAY UP IN THE SKY

AND AFTER ALL THAT CLIMBING THAT BOY WOULDN'T TALK OR MOVE JUST WHAT DID HE THINK HE WAS TRYING TO PROVE?

WAS HE MAD I COULD REALLY CLIMB THAT HIGH? IT WAS THEN I HEARD HIM START TO SIGH

HE FINALLY SAID A COUPLE OF WORDS

HE WHISPERED "LISTEN, LISTEN, DO YOU HEAR THE BIRDS?"

NOT FAR FROM US WAS A MOMMY BIRD WITH BABIES IN A NEST SHE LOOKED VERY PROUD WITH A PUFFED OUT YELLOW CHEST

THE MOMMY WAS SINGING A HAPPY SONG AS SHE FED HER BABIES TO MAKE THEM STRONG

HERE I AM, WAY UP IN THIS GREAT BIG TREE JUST THE BOY, THE BIRDS AND LITTLE OLE' ME
