Excerpt From Archie Book 1:
A Surprise Encounter
It was another day, and Archie was feeling very sorry for himself. His little leg was hurting and he was all bruised with his encounter with that horrible dog. Worse than that was his mum insisting that he could not go out again, until he was all better.
“Never mind” Thought Archie “I know for a fact that the little girl has a brother, and everyone knows that boys are braver than girls!”Archie still had a lot to learn about boys and girls, “So tomorrow when mum lets me out, I’ll sneak into the house again and see if I can get close to the little boy – he’s bound to like me, and want to be my friend”
The next day Archie pleaded with his mother to let him go out to play in the garden “Ok then” His mother said “But just be sure you do not get into trouble again, and stay away from birds and horrible dogs !”
Archie ran off to find his jacket, as it was very cold outside and he did not want to freeze before he got across the lawn to the next door house. Here is where he would be successful, he thought to himself; and at last make a friend that he could talk to and play games with.
Poor Archie still though that if only he had a chance to meet them, then these children would love to be his friend. With that comforting thought Archie headed for the crack in the wall, and went outside.
He did not know it, but great danger was waiting for him..
Sitting on the branch of a tall tree, a large yellow beady eye looked down upon a Archie. “A juicy fat spider” The Blackbird thought “just what I need for breakfast!”
