Fabienne woke up with great expectations. This was going to be a pip of a day and she hoped to visit Miss Havisham who lived down the road.
But Fabienne's plans for a great day were dashed when she looked out her window.
It was raining. Pouring. Great buckets of water falling out of the sky. The back yard was flooded and streams of water were running down the street.
Stella came into the room. "Are we going out today," Stella asked, her tail wagging furiously.
"No, I'm afraid not, Stella," Fabienne said, "it's raining."
"What are we going to do?" Stella asked.
"I know," said Fabienne, "let's have a game day and play all of our favorite games."
And that's just what they did. Fabienne set up the big table with games and brought all her friends including Mr. Bear and Mr. Rabbit and all the other friends.
They had such a great time playing games that they didn't notice that the rain had stopped until a ray of sunlight crossed the floor.
Mr. Rabbit was the first to notice.
"Look at that," Mr. Rabbit said, "sunlight!"
Everybody stopped playing games and looked at the sunlight.
Fabienne was very excited because there was much of the day remaining. "We can still go visit Miss Havisham!"
And so they did with great expectations and had a dickens of a time!
