The Search For The Lost Cat
By Irene Heo
Once again in the city of Forest Hills there was another mystery to solve.
Kate was reading her favorite book Hank The Cowdog.
When she was reading the doorbell rang. Her mom shouted Kate!
Aunt Lisa and Luke are here. Kate was not surprised. Yesterday her mom did mention
Aunt Lisa is gonna come but never told me why. I went downstairs and saw little 4 year old Luke crying.
I asked Aunt Lisa why. She didn’t look happy like she always did.
She said well yesterday Socks and Luke went outside to play and when Luke came in he forgot to bring Socks in.
Today we searched all over the neighborhood but we never found him.
I was gonna ask if you and the T.M.S. to help us find him.
Kate said I’ll be happy to help. After they left I called Claire and Ella if they could have a meeting at my house.
they said yes. I told them what happened. When I finished telling them Claire ended up crying while Ella was making sad eyes. :( We first went to Aunt Lisa’s house. Then I asked her a question.
Where is Socks's favorite spot to relax? Since it was summer Socks probably had a more cooler spot.
Aunt Lisa said well I’m not sure but I think it’s either under the big tree or under our backyard slide.
We wrote it down in our journals. Me and Claire went to the big tree while Ella went to the backyard slide.
Ella shouted GUYS I THINK I FOUND SOCKS. We ran to the slide and there he was.
They had found him sleeping and had Luke’s earmuffs.
So that was probably why Socks didn’t come when Aunt Lisa and Luke shouted his name.
We took off the earmuffs and Socks woke up. Everybody was so happy that we had a pool party at Claire's house.
It was a big “splash”. We had so much fun. I can’t wait for the next mystery.
See you next time.
오늘은 어떻게 지냈니? 한국은 요즘 메르스 때문에 다들 걱정이 이만저만이 아니란다.
많은 유치원,초등학교가 휴교해서 아이들과 학생들이 방학을 맞아 집에서 다양한 활동을 하는 너처럼 1주일 넘게 집에 머물러야 한단다.
어쨓든 이모가 너의 첫글을 재미있게 읽어서 두번째 글은 어떻게 썼을가?
궁금 했었는데 엄마 말대로 조금 빨리 쓴 티가 나긴 했단다. 첫번째 글은 네가 3학년임에도 불구하고 꽤 자연스러웠거든.
글을 못썼다는 이야기가 아니라 ,이야기를 끌어 나가는 사람이 나면 글이 끝날때까지 나, 즉 I 로
등장해야 하고 , 제 3자 입장에서 나오는 인물을을 보는 입장이면 I 가 나오면 어색하고 글이 살짝 혼동스러울 수 있단다.
그리고 Socks가 earmuffs(귀마개 ) 했다는 아이디어가 너무 좋더구나!
누가 그렇게 했을까? Lisa 이모의 이웃 중에 한 사람이 했을까? 아니면 Socks가 장난치며 놀다가
Luck의 귀마개를 우연히 쓰게 된 걸까? 아무튼 재미 있었어.
그리고 주인공인 Kate 가 왠지 혜인이 너의 모습과 닮은듯해~
다음엔 이모가 짧은 스토리 읽고 , 감상문 써서 올리면 봐주겠니?
물론 네가 학교 다닐때는 바쁘니까 주로 방학에 부탁을 하마~ ^ ^
그리고 이렇게 편지를 쓰다 보니 이모가 초등학교 5학때 너무나 좋아해서 여러번 읽은 "빨강 머리앤" 과 그리고 "작은 아씨들" 이란 책이 생각나는구나!
너도 꼭 읽어 보렴.
'Joe 가 어디에 나오는 인물인지 맞혀 보렴.~
