The Lily Pad(dle) Boat

In a thick forest filled with animals, there lived a family of monkeys on a tree. There were 12 of them. 10 of them were children and the other 2 were the mother and the father. The father was big and strong, and so were 9 of the children. But one of them was a very small one. He was known as Baby Monkey. Baby Monkey had two friends- a duck and a frog. Their name were T. Duck and W. Frog.
Baby Monkey played with T. Duck and W. Frog everyday. Baby Monkey did not have any other friends to play with. He never saw the need for any other friends, because the Duck and Frog were such good friends to him. They would spend the whole day playing some game or the other. Even when they rested between the games, they stayed together.
However, this was not always the case. Earlier, when Duck and Frog, got into the pond to play, Baby Monkey was left all by himself at the shore. He just sat there and watched the green water and the lily pads. Duck and Frog could not stay away from the water too long, they loved all the water play and the little snacks they found there. Baby Monkey just sulked at the shore till they came back.
One day, as Baby Monkey watched Duck and Frog play in the water, he went so close to the edge that he fell on the water with a big PPPPLLLLLOOOOPPPP!! Baby Monkey scrambled onto a lily pad. He was so small that the lily pad could support his weight! Duck swam by and broke the lily pad from the plant. Baby Monkey had a little paddle boat for himself! Baby Monkey paddled to Duck and Frog. Duck and Frog were very happy to see Baby Monkey in the pond. They played happily for the rest of the day.
So now, whenever his friends get in the water, Baby Monkey floats by beside them and enjoys the water play.
