Story 2 Marty and the little Kitten



Marty the motorcycling Giraffe

Story 2 Marty and the little kitten

As you know Marty is a very special giraffe
He is special because instead of living in the African plains and spending all day eating leafs from the top of tall trees, Like all the other giraffes ………………………………

Marty lives in a big African city called Nairobi and spends most of his time whizzing around on his motorcycle.

Marty woke up in apartment one day feeling very blue, which is a very funny colour for a giraffe. The reason he was feeling so sad was that his motorcycle had broken down and Marty couldn’t afford to pay for it to be fixed.

So today Marty had to go to work on the bus, because he was so tall Marty had to put his head out of the bus’s window so that he could fit into the bus.

Marty had a job working for Peter Ngono the window cleaner. Peter cleaned the widows of the very tall office buildings in Nairobi. To reach the high windows Peter sits on Marty’s head and Marty lifts him up so that Peter can clean them

Marty was very happy at his work and was very good friends with Peter.


One evening as Peter and Marty were tidying up their tools and packing them into Peter’s van, they noticed a large crowd gathering across the road.

The people were all looking up at a tall building and pointing.

Marty and Peter went over to see what all the fuss was about. A very posh lady was shouting that her cat was stuck on the top of a very tall building.

“Oh won’t someone help my poor little kitten” she cried.


Peter and Marty had a plan!!

Peter drove his van so it was right under the building where the kitten was stuck. Marty climbed on top of the van and stretched his neck up as far as he could.

He then called to the kitten.

The Kitten jumped onto Marty’s head and very carefully Marty lowered the kitten into the posh lady’s arms.

The lady was very pleased and hugged Marty and Peter crying “Asante sana” (thank you very much) and said that they were both heroes.

The posh lady was so pleased to have her little kitten back safe and sound that as a reward she brought Peter a brand new bucket and a new pair of overalls.

And as for Marty?  Well she paid to have his motorcycle fixed.

Marty was pleased to be a hero and very pleased to have his motorcycle back/

Now he could get back to whizzing around on his motorcycle to see what other adventure could be found for……………………………………………………..
