Rigby Star Independent Purple Reader 1 The Beaver's Tail


Hanee the beaver works hard, but her friend Tindui the otter wants her to play. Tindui builds a slide, so Hanee builds an even bigger one. But when she slides down it is bumpy, so she sits on her tail. At the end of the afternoon’s sliding her tail has no hair on it and is flat. Hanee finds her new tail much more useful.
