Hot summer days in the South are good for absolutely NOTHING, except for naps and ice cream!
A Special Day with Edmund
Edmund and Melanie decided it would be fun to spend the whole day together. They had big plans! They visited a farm, and Edmund bought Melanie a pet pig!
They didn't even get through half of their plans before Edmund needed a nap.
At first, Melanie was a little disappointed, but she also felt a bit sleepy. She decided to take a nap, too, and she was grateful to be spending time with her fuzzy friend!!
Melanie and Tommy had become good friends with Peter and Edmund. However, there was always something a little different about those rats! But they could never pinpoint exactly what it was...
One night, Melanie and Tommy woke up to a strange sound on their farm. They're very brave kids, so they went out to investigate the noise. They couldn't believe their eyes! Peter and Edmund were boarding an alien spaceship! YES! A SPACESHIP! And, their ears looked different.
Tommy & Melanie weren't frightened. They knew Peter & Edmund must have been good aliens, considering all the fun times they'd had together. When asked where they were going, Peter and Edmund replied, "our home planet (Rattiedinkus) is in trouble and they need our help right away!!" They assured the kids that they'd return as soon as possible. Tommy & Melanie were very sad, but waved goodbye and wished them a safe journey back home....
