Hi! We’re George's friends, Sam and Emma.
George is a dreamer. On the wall in his room he's got a big map of the world.
George's parents are nice. We love his mother’s cakes.
George and Julia have cats. George’s cat is orange, Julia’s is black.
Hi! I am George's mother.
I've got a little cake shop. It's in the city centre. Its name is Chocolate Factory.
Our cakes are delicious, and we are busy all the time.
George isn't crazy about cakes. George is a member
of WYP – World Young Photographers.
I'm Julia. George is my big brother. I’ve got a cat, too.
Her name’s Bella. George and I are different. Our cats are very different, too.
George's cat, Hermes, is always on the move.
I say to my brother, “You want to travel. Your cat is just like you”.
I'm George's father. I work from home.
I'm also the family cook, but I never make cakes. Julia is 9. She wants to be an artist.
George is 11. He isn’t a great talker.
I tell my children, “Love your family and your home.”
Hi! My name’s Hermes. I’m George’s cat.
I’m usually in my garden and other gardens, too. I’m not like Julia’s cat.
Her favourite place is the sofa. Bella thinks she’s the queen of the castle.
She isn’t. I’m the king. We aren’t best friends.
George is cool. He’s curious, like me.
