Anyway, I headed off in the direction of that hiding spot. I was glad to see that the tree was still there. I climbed up the tree and slipped into the hole in its trunk. I chuckled to myself because I knew that I’d be hard to find.
I don’t know how long I was hiding before I heard my friends calling me. I tried to get out of the tree, but I got stuck! I didn’t want to give my hiding spot away but I couldn’t get out. I started calling and Coco Monkey found me. It turns out that I won the game which was good, but I was trapped in the tree trunk and that was bad.
My friends tried to pull me out of the tree trunk but weren’t able to so Cappy Monkey ran off to get Mama Monkey and Squirrelly Monkey and Coco Monkey stayed with me to keep me company. Mama Monkey looked annoyed especially since she couldn’t get me out of the tree either. She finally had to get Uncle Titian to help.
Uncle Titian brought his saw and that made me nervous. He promised not to get too close and started cutting a bigger hole in the tree trunk. It took a long time, but he finally made the hole big enough for me to wriggle out of. I was in such a hurry to get out of the tree that I slipped and fell. Mama Monkey said I had sprained my ankle. I had to rest my leg for a few days.
I’m finally allowed out of the house again. Squirrelly Monkey made me a raft that I can lay on while we’re in the river. I’m so glad to be able to go outside again!
