Brownies for Mr. Green
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Mr. Green asked Mrs. Green to bake some brownies. Brownies were good on cold and gloomy days. Warm brownies always made his nose happy. They made his mouth very happy. Brownies made his tummy very, very happy!
 
2     Mrs. Green agreed to make brownies. She opened the cupboard to get the cocoa, but there wasn't any left.
 
3     "Oh, dear," she said. "I cannot make brownies without cocoa! What shall I do?"
 
4     "Do not give up yet!" Mr. Green cried. "I will try to find some cocoa in town."
 
5     "It is snowing!" Mrs. Green told him. "You need to stay home."
 
6     When Mr. Green wants brownies, it is no use trying to stop him. Mrs. Green gave up, and Mr. Green left for town in his dull green car.
 
7     After he crossed the river, he ran over a nail and got a flat tire. He sat in the car. What would he do now?
 
8     "I will leave the car. It isn't far to the store," Mr. Green told himself. "I will walk."
