Festive Road is very noisy: workmen are everywhere, repairing the road. I decide to take a walk to the costume shop. When I get there I find a Roman Gladiator’s outfit and chuckle to myself, “The Romans made very good roads” I explain to the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper smiles and invites me to try on the costume.
Festive Road was unusually quiet that day. Everybody seemed to be indoors – even I was sitting in my room, thinking how trapped I felt inside it today. So I decided to go to the costume shop. Just the walk along the streets does me good – I was glad to be out of my little room. In the shop I was not sure which costume to choose; the shopkeeper suggested a dark blue uniform with a peaked cap. Who can it be, I wondered? I tried on the costume and stepped outside.
Ilooked out of the window at number 52 Festive Road and all I could see were children and their parents all walking to the park. I followed to find out why. There is a magic show at the park, I discover, and as I watch the display I think of a certain shop not far away I would like to visit. In the costume shop I found a starry, glittery costume and the shopkeeper appeared and invited me to try it on to see how well it fits.
It was a stormy morning in Festive Road. I was waiting for the pelting rain to stop and the skies to clear and then I was planning on going for a walk. To the costume shop, perhaps. In the shop I thought I would let fate decide which costume to try – I just span around and pointed. The shopkeeper’s eyes twinkled and I took the intriguing costume into the changing room. Could it be a pirate’s outfit?
Festive Road is thronging with blood-curdling cries and triumphal shouts today – the children are playing cowboys and Indians. I had been reading about a cowboy film at the cinema and so I decided to take a stroll to see it. When I got to the cinema, there was such a queue that I had a better idea – the costume shop and a cowboy outfit. Once I got there, the shopkeeper happily handed me the costume and invited me to try it on.
The sun is shining in Festive Road and children are listening to sea-shells. I am at the riverside, watching the boats go by. The water seems to hold a world of adventures in it and it starts me thinking of the costume shop. I set off to the shop and find a red frogman’s outfit. Perfect – with this I can dive under the sea and explore this watery world.
The children were playing in Festive Road and I could hear the sound of laughter. As I looked out of my window, I could see a girl juggling, while another had on a funny mask and I thought, what fun it must be to make people laugh. I set off for the costume shop and a clown’s costume with a bright red nose.
