Chapter OneSimon's family loved TV. They watched TV in the morning, TV in the afternoon, and TV every single night.
They even ate their dinner while watching TV. They did not like to play outside. They did not like to play games. They simply liked to watch TV.
One night, a light snow began to fall. And it fell and fell and fell, and the wind blew colder and colder, until —BLOOP!—the TV went out! The whole house became very quiet and very dark, and so they went to bed.
In the morning, they all sat and stared at each other for a looooong time, not knowing what to do. The TV was blank, not working, not doing anything!
