Brachiosaurus loved adventures. “I want to go exploring, “she told her friend Stegosaurus. “Come with me. It will be fun.”
Brachiosaurus and Stegosaurus decided to explore behind the chicken coop. They squeezed and squeezed and squeezed in order to fit. “Wow, it sure is smaller back here than I remember”, said Brachiosaurus. “Maybe it is because we are bigger now than when we were chicks”, explained Stegosaurus.
It was shady and cool behind the chicken coop and they had fun hiding from the other chickens all day. “Brachiosaurus, Stegosaurus, where are you?” called Triceratops. “Sshh,” whispered Stegosaurus when Brachiosaurus giggled. “Be quiet or they will find us.”
After a while, it started to get dark. The two explorers weren’t having fun anymore. They were hungry, and it was time for bed. Brachiosaurus pushed and pushed but she couldn’t budge. “Oh, no, we’re stuck!” cried Stegosaurus. “Help! Help!” they both clucked as loudly as they could. But no one heard them.
By now, it was very dark and cold, and Brachiosaurus and Stegosaurus just wanted to sleep in their roost with their chicken friends. “Stegosaurus, let’s push together. Maybe we can squeeze our way out of here”, said Brachiosaurus. They counted, One, Two, Three, and the pushed and pushed and pushed. It felt a little bigger behind the chicken coop. They counted again, One, Two, Three, and stretched their legs as long as they could. They pushed, and pushed, and pushed.
“I can move!” yelled Stegosaurus. “Yay!” Stegosaurus and Brachiosaurus slowly squeezed out of their hiding place. They climbed up to the sleeping roost and went to bed.
Since that day, Brachiosaurus and Stegosaurus don’t go on adventures. They are happy scratching in their yard, laying eggs, and playing with the other chickens.
