Mom and Dad say, " Supper is ready ! "
Picky Nicky says " I want spaghetti ! "
Mom says, " No spaghetti. We are having peas and carrots. "
Picky Nicky says, " I would rather eat bees and parrots than peas and carrots. "
Dad says, " We are also having grapes and pears. "
Picky Nicky says, " I would rather eat apes and bears than grapes and pears. "
Pcky Nicky says, " Freddy always has spaghetti ! "
Dad says, " Then go eat at Freddy's house ! "
So Picky Nicky goes to Freddy's house. She goes to the door. She rings the bell. " What's for supper ? " she says.
" It's spaghetti ! " says Freddy. " Get a plate ! "
Freddy's mom brings the spaghetti. Then she says, " We are also having peas, carrots, grapes, and pears. Pass your plate ! "
Oh, no ! Picky Nicky thinks, " I would rather eat bees, parrots, apes, and bears, than peas, carrots, grapes, and pears ! " What will she do ?
" I know ! " Picky Nicky takes a spoon of peas, a spoon of carrots, some grapes, and a little bit of pears. She hides them under her spaghetti !
Soon her plate is clean. Where are the peas, carrots, grapes, and pears ? Wow ! Picky Nicky ate them !
The next night Picky Nicky says, " I will eat anthing --- if I can hide it in spaghetti. " Dad says, " Even peas, carrots, grapes, and pears ? Even ice cream ? "
Picky Nicky says, " No, I will have my ice cream all by itself ! "
