從前從前,有一隻叫羅斯的知更鳥,他最喜歡跟他的兩個朋友:麥克還有起司一起玩,他們一起度過許多歡樂的時光。

 

每次大壞鳥總是會找他們麻煩,但是他們都沒有感覺到任何的異狀。直到羅斯因為體型太小而被國王鳥趕走的那天,羅斯才發覺大事不妙了。

 

國王鳥是隻尖酸刻薄的鳥。

 

羅斯非常傷心,他為了轉換心情,所以出發去探險。他在乾草田的中間找到了一個餵鳥器,但裡面只剩下一顆種子。

 

他把唯一的那顆種子吞下後,餵鳥器又開始不斷的跑出種子!在牠發現不對勁的時後,他已經變成一隻大鳥了!

 

羅斯飛回王國後,大家都大吃一驚,包括麥克和起司也被嚇到了。

 

隨後,羅斯就帶著麥克和起司去找神奇餵食器。

 

從此以後,他們就再也不會被欺負了。

​(Original Text)

Once upon a time there was a robin called Ross. Ross loved playing with his best friends Mac and Cheese. They all had great fun together.

 

The bigger birds always picked on Ross, Mac and Cheese, but they took no notice of it, until Ross was banished from the kingdom by the king for being too small.

 

The king was a very mean bird.

 

Ross was sad so he went exploring to cheer himself up. He found a bird feeder in the middle of a hay field, but there was only one seed in the feeder.

 

He ate it anyway and the seed kept coming and coming and coming. And before he knew it, he was very big!

 

Ross went back and everyone was so surprised, including Mac and Cheese! So, Ross led Mac and Cheese to the magical bird feeder and the trio were never picked on again.
