1 Gordon stood next to his mother. The wide grasslands went further than he could see. Mom said it was a nice place. Gordon saw a problem. There were no other young elephants like him.
2 "But Mom," said Gordon, "Who will I play with?"
3 "There are many other animals around," said Mom. "Make friends with them."
4 Gordon kept his eyes open. Then he saw some young antelopes. They were jumping up and down on their toes.
5 "May I play too?" asked Gordon hopefully.
6 The young antelopes stopped jumping. They all stared at him.
7 "Your legs are too thick for jumping," said one.
8 "You cannot keep up," said another.
9 They all laughed and jumped away through the grass. Gordon was sad. It might be hard to make new friends.
