Chapter One

"Neigh! Neigh!" said the horse. "Want to go for a ride?"

The spider didn't answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

"Moo! Moo!" said the cow. "Want to eat some grass?"

The spider didn't answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

"Baa! Baa!" bleated the sheep. "Want to run in the meadow?"

The spider didn't answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

"Maa! Maa!" said the goat. "Want to jump on the rocks?"

The spider didn't answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

"Oink! Oink!" grunted the pig. "Want to roll in the mud?"

The spider didn't answer. She was very busy spinning her web.

"Meow! Meow!" cried the cat. "Want to take a nap?"

The spider didn't answer. She was very busy spinning her web.
