AN ORDINARY FAMILY

3 Look at the picture of Mike’s family. Read and say who they are. Point to each person and say his/her name.

My mum is kind and helpful. She has got beautiful blue eyes and short, light-brown hair. She is quite tall.

My dad is plump. As you can see he is a bit bald. My parents’ names are Melissa and George.

My little brother Ted is six and he is always around me with loads of questions, “Why are frogs green? Where’s the Moon now? What

Is a website?”

But even I haven’t got answers to every question. Ted is so curious and boring!

My sister has got long blond hair and she always wears a lot of make up1 and big earrings. She is seventeen and I think she is selfish.

This man with a grey beard is my grandpa. We call him Pirate Ed because he travelled around the world on a big ship.

But that is only his nickname. His real name is Edward. He is very interesting and he tells us a lot of amazing stories. He can speak 10 languages!

You can also see my uncle Harry. He is my father’s brother.

He has got a ponytail. He makes us laugh. His wife, Linda, is always serious. She is slim because she is always on a diet.

The girl with braids is my cousin Amy. She is 11 and she is shy. Her brother Jim is very thin, so my granny Liz often says, “Jim, you must eat more if you want to be big and strong.” And the untidy boy is my other cousin Robert.

This is not my whole family. I have got many other relatives,

But they are not in this picture.

CINDERELLA

Cinderella is a beautiful girl.

She has got a mean stepmother1 and two ugly and evil sisters.

Cinderella is in the kitchen from morning till evening. Her sisters are lazy but their dresses are new and lovely.

One day there is a big ball at the castle. And in that castle there is a handsome prince and his parents, the king and the queen. The ugly sisters go to the ball. But Cinderella can’t go to the ball because she has got only one old dress. So she is in the kitchen as usual. She is crying.

Suddenly, there is her fairy godmother2 in front of her. She is a nice old lady and she has got a magic wand. “Abracadabra short and tall, you too can now go to the ball!” And look! Cinderella is wearing a beautiful pink dress and glass slippers. She is excited because she can go to the ball, too. There is even a golden carriage3 in front of the house. “But remember, you must come back home at midnight4!”, the fairy says.

At the ball, Cinderella is the most beautiful girl. The prince is dancing only with her. Suddenly, she can hear a clock. Ding, dong, ding, dong… Oh no, it’s midnight.
