Purple Dog Buys a Kite   

1     The sun came up. Mother Dog fed her little dog. His name was Purple. Then his mother gave him a dime. She sent him to the store to buy a kite.
2     Purple met a red frog at the store. They stopped to chat.
3     "What are you doing today?" asked the red frog.
4     "I am here to buy a kite," said Purple.
5     "That sounds like fun," said the frog. "Will you buy a purple kite?"
6     Purple shook his head. "No. I like yellow. My kite will be as yellow as a lemon."
7     They went into the store. There were many kites. Purple did not see any yellow ones. He felt sad.
8     Just then, Purple Dog saw a yellow kite! Red Frog saw it, too. He tried to grab it.
9     "Hey," yelled Purple. "You took my kite!"
