And the Search for Pooky
Happy Birthday Kelsey!
We Love You! Mom & Dad
April 4, 2008
Kelsey Shaye Whiting, age 8 years old, was at the zoo near
“I lost my teddy
“Are you sure you didn’t eat him?” asked Nermal.
“I’ll help you find Pooky!” said Kelsey.
Kelsey pointed to the ground. “Look, footprints! Whoever made these may have bearnapped Pooky.”
Kelsey and Garfield followed the footprints. “Will we find Pooky here?” Arlene asked. “I hope we don’t find a swamp creature instead,” said Nermal.
“Arf!” Odie barked. He wanted to play ball.
“Arf!” Odie barked again.
“Oh, all right,”
“Uh-oh! Watch out for that croc, Idie!” Kelsey shouted.
“Elephants!” Kelsey cheered.
A big mama elephant was giving her baby a bath. The elephant sprayed water from hertrunk, splashing Nermal. Luckily, Garfield and Kelsey ducked just in time and didn’t get wet.
“Yuck! This is worse than Odie’s drool,” whined Nermal.
“Let’s keep following the footprints,” Kelsey suggested. Garfield and Kelsey walked by the monkeys, who were swinging in the trees and eating bananas.
Nermal made a silly face. “I look like a monkey,” he said.
A monkey squeezed a
banana in each hand. Pop! Pop! The tasty fruit shot into
“Gulp! Gulp!” the fat cat said. “You can’t feed the animals, but there’s no rule that says they can’t feed you!”
Suddenly, Odie appeared, carrying the dingleball in his mouth.
“We thought the crocodiles got you,” Arlene smirked.
“Let’s look for Pooky in the bird sanctuary, “ Kelsey said.
Kelsey walked with
Garfield and his friends across a rope bridge.
Brightly colored birds flew through the air. One with a wiggly worm in its beak landed on
“I think the bird wants to share her food,” said Kelsey.
“I filled up my
tank and I’m ready to roll,” said
“Maybe Pooky is here by the lions,” said Kelsey.
“Rwarrr,” Nermal let out a little roar.
“RWARRR!” A lion let out a big roar.
Kelsey wished Noah and Josh were there to hear how loud the lion’s roar was.
“Maybe Pooky is with the polar bears,” said Kelsey. “Let’s check it out.”
Garfield and his
friends watched the bears swim and splash in the pool.
“Polar bears live
“I know where polar bears keep their money,” Nermal said.
“Where?” Kelsey asked.
“In snow banks.” Nermal said with a smile.
“Let’s split up,” said Kelsey. “We’ll meet back at the big fountain. Arlene and Nermal can look in the kangaroo habitat, and we’ll look in the Spider and Snake House.”
Just then a snake slithered down a branch and hissed, while a big hairy spider dropped from the tree.
BONK! A big green ball bounced off
A group of seals clapped their fins and barked happily.
“They want to play,” Kelsey said.
“Let the games
Kelsey tossed the ball to Odie. The dog smacked the ball with his big red tongue and sent it flying back to the seals.
Garfield, Kelsey and Odie met up with Nermal and Arlene at the big fountain.
“Look!” Kelsey exclaimed. “It’s Pooky!”
Garfield and Odie’s
owner, Jon, handed the teddy bear to
“Where did you find Pooky?” Kelsey asked.
“I didn’t find
him,” said Jon. “I guess I bearnapped
“Thanks for helping
me find my bear,”
“That would be great! I can’t wait to tell Noah and Josh about our adventure.” replied Kelsey.
“But next time,”
