Barb was a green Banana.
The other bananas were yellow.
Barb wished she was a yellow banana too.
The other bananas played together.
But Barb walked home alone feeling sad.
She turned right, then turned left
She walked up, then walked down
She twisted, then turned…
Until Barb didn’t know where she was.
Beep beep! Honk honk! Cars were zooming along the street.
It was a busy place. The buildings were tall. The people were… colorful!
Purple, pink, yellow, orange, brown…
“Ehem! Excuse me” said a voice.
Barb turned around but could not see anyone.
Barb looked down and saw a small green ball.
“YOU’RE GREEN TOO!” cried Barb.
“Yes, of course! I’m Spencer the Sprout!”
“Hi! I’m Barb the Banana”
“Aren’t Bananas yellow?”
“Yes…” Barb sighed.
“Well, you must be very special!”
“Yes, it’s good to be different” replied Spencer.
This made Barb smile.
Spencer was nice, maybe he could help Barb.
“Where am I?” she asked.
“You’re in Roots and Fruits Ville” replied Spencer, “A place where different fruits and vegetables live together”
Barb liked it here because everyone looked different.
“Nice to meet you Barb the Banana” said Spencer.
And off he whizzed down the street to catch the bus.
Barb liked Spencer the Sprout and he was green too.
Fruits and vegetables come in all colors, shapes and sizes.
Barb went home to play with the other bananas.
Barb liked being a green banana and they liked her too.
