The Little Red House

Once upon a time there was a little boy. He was looking for something to do one beautiful fall day, so his mom told him to go find a little red house with no windows and no door and a star inside.

This sounded very interesting to the little boy. He had never seen a little red house with no windows and no doors and a star inside, so he set out!

He was walking down the road when suddenly he saw Mr. Pig. The little boy asked, “Mr. Pig, Mr. Pig, do you know where I can find a little red house with no windows or doors and a star inside?”

Mr. Pig said, “Oink! Never heard of it!” and trotted off.

So the boy kept walking. Next he saw Miss Cow eating some grass by the side of the road. The little boy asked, “Miss Cow, Miss Cow, do you know where I can find a little red house with no windows or doors and a star inside?”

Miss Cow said, “Moooo! Never heard of it!” and went back to eating her grass.

So the boy kept walking. Next he saw Mr. Horse galloping down the road. The little boy asked, “Mr. Horse, Mr. Horse, do you know where I can find a little red house with no windows and no doors and a star inside?”

Mr. Horse said, “Neeeeigh-ver heard of it!” and galloped off.

The little boy was starting to feel sad. Where on earth was he going to find this mysterious little red house with no windows and no doors and a star inside?

Just when the little boy was about to give up and head home, he saw Miss Kitty sitting way up high in a beautiful apple tree.

The little boy cried out, “Miss Kitty, Miss Kitty! Do you know where I can find a little red house with no windows and no doors and a star inside?”

Well, Miss Kitty peered down at the little boy out of that big beautiful tree and said, “WHY YES, YES I DO.”

Then suddenly Miss Kitty threw a large red apple down from the tree.

The little boy reached out and caught the shiny red apple.

He looked at it and scrunched up his nose, “Miss Kitty, are you saying that this apple is a little red house with no windows and no doors and a star inside?”

Miss Kitty replied, “Why yes, yes it is.”

The little boy said, “Let’s see… This apple is red. And it has no windows. And it doesn’t have any doors. But does it have a star inside?”

Miss Kitty said “Why don’t you give it your mother and ask her to cut it up for you?”

The little boy said “Thank you” and hurried back down the lane with the big, red apple in his hand. When he reached his house the little boy gave the apple to his mother. His mother said, “You have found a house with no doors and no windows and the star inside”

She then took a knife and cut the apple through the center horizontally. Oh, how wonderful! There inside the apple, lay a star holding five brown seeds.
