Belinda ventures outside of the safety flags at the beach. What will happen to her?
Eleanor set about getting Belinda clean, and then dressed her in her very best clothes. She looked an absolute picture when Eleanor had finished.
“Now, you stay pretty and don’t get dirty while I get ready,” Eleanor said.
“Okay,” Belinda replied, “I won’t play in the dirt, I promise.”
Eleanor went to have a bath and get dressed, and then went to find Belinda. She looked around outside, but could not see her.
“Have you seen Belinda?” she asked her mother.
“Yes, I saw her go outside, and I told her not to get dirty. She promised me that she would not play in the dirt.”
“She promised me that, too, after I told her the same thing. I hope she keeps her promise.”
Eleanor went outside again to search for Belinda. This time at the bottom of the garden, Eleanor noticed the door of the garden shed was open. When Eleanor peeped through, the door she saw the funniest sight.
