A hungry rabbit hopped through the tall grass in search of something to eat.

“Hello rabbit,” said an ant.

“Hello ant,” said the rabbit. “Can you tell me where I might find some carrots for my dinner?”

“No,” said the ant. “Would you like to eat one of my wheat seeds?”

“No thank you,” said the rabbit and hopped into the woods.

“Hello rabbit,” said a squirrel.

“Hello squirrel,” said the rabbit. “Can you tell me where I might find some carrots for my dinner?”

“No,” said the squirrel. “Would you like to eat one of my acorns?”

“No thank you,” said the rabbit.

 By this time Rabbit was very hungry. He hopped as fast as he could and before long he found himself in an open field.

“I smell carrots,” said the very hungry rabbit.

He hopped fast and faster; high and higher. Faster and higher than he had every hopped before.

Rabbit jumped – straight into a pot of steaming carrots, cooking over an open fire.

“Hello rabbit,” said a man tending the fire. “Thank you for coming to dinner.”
