CHAPTER 15 – BASKET

I make longer and longer trips around the island. I need a basket for these trips. With a basket I can carry more food during my trips. I can also carry more fruit from the fruit valley.

I cut branches from the tree which I use for my fences. I use the branches for the basket.

When I finish the basket, I decide to make a long trip around the island.

I go through the fruit valley. After the valley, I find some fields. A lot of grass is on the fields. The fields are very flat.

There are a lot of flowers on the fields. The flowers smell so good. Many insects fly around these flowers. I see some big butterflies. Their wings are ten centimetres wide.

I also see small trees around these fields. I find nuts on these trees. These nuts are different from nuts in England. They have a different shape. They are also more sweet than nuts in England.

I discover some new animals on this side of the island. Wild cats live here. I also see many parrots and other interesting birds.

I catch one parrot. I take the parrot with me. His body has many colours. I see red, green, orange, blue, pink and yellow.

This part of the island is very nice. More food is here. But I don’t want to move here.

My dog catches a young goat on the way back. I save the goat. I take the goat with me. I want to keep goats. Now I have another chance.

I leave the goat in my valley house. I want to prepare some space for the goat in my first home.

I am so tired from the trip. I relax the whole day. I make a cage for the parrot. I bring home the goat. The goat starts to be calm.

I make a map of the whole island. I put these new places on the map.

The time goes very fast. Soon, it is September again. This is my second year on the island. I am less sad now. I accept my situation. I have many good things in my life.

My days are similar. I hunt in the morning. I cook at noon. I relax in the afternoon when the sun is very strong. And I work in the evening. This is my typical day.

I also teach my parrot how to say his name. His name is Poll.

I have a problem with my corn in November and December. The wild goats want to eat the little plants.

I don’t want to lose my corn. So I quickly make a fence around the field with corn.

I make a gate in the fence. I put my dog inside the fence. He protects my corn at night.

Soon, the plants are tall, but another danger comes. Birds start to eat the seeds.

I shoot at the birds. They fly away. I must watch my field every day.
