Christopher Corn and Popcorn

“It is a beautiful summer evening,” said Christopher Corn.

“It sure is,” said Farmer Fred. “I think I am going to have a bonfire.”

“That sounds like a lot of fun,” said Christopher.

“I will get the bonfire ready,” said Farmer Fred. “Why don’t you go get your guitar?”

“Sounds good to me,” said Christopher.

Christopher went into the barn and grabbed his guitar. He told the other members of the Fresh Veggie family about the bonfire.

A bonfire!” exclaimed Mrs. Tomato. “Now that sounds like fun!”

“It certainly does,” said Cameron Cauliflower.

Christopher and the other members of the Fresh Veggie family joined Farmer Fred at the bonfire.

“That sure is a big bonfire,” said Christopher.

Christopher was getting a little too close to the flames.

“I think you should back away from the fire,” said Farmer Fred. “I don’t want you to end up being popcorn.”

“Popcorn,” said Christopher, backing away quickly. “What is that?”

“Popcorn is the tastiest treat ever,” said Farmer Fred. “Especially with melted butter and salt.”

“I don’t wanna pop,” sang Christopher, strumming his guitar. “Pop, pop, pop!”

The rest of the Fresh Veggie family sang along with him. Farmer Fred also joined in. The bonfire was a lot of fun. Christopher was careful not to get too close to it.


Moral of this Story:

  • Don’t get too close to a bonfire.
  • Example: Christopher Corn got a little too close to the bonfire.
