The Scooter

Helena Bross, illustrated by Kadri Ilves

“Number 1 Sun Street” is a series of very easy-to-read books. They are warm, charming stories for those who are just starting to learn to read, with a limited amount of text, short sentences and simple words.

Axel and Omar would like to have their very own scooters. Everyone else has got one! One day as they are sitting on the climbing frame they see a discarded scooter lying nearby. It is smart and shiny and doesn’t appear to belong to anyone. They have a go on it. In the evening they hide it in the bushes. It’s such fun and they are going to borrow it tomorrow too, only for a little while! But are you really allowed to hide someone else’s things?

The scooter is the ninth and completely free-standing book in the series Number 1 Sun Street about the two friends Omar and Axel who live in the same building at Number 1 Sun Street. See also: New Friends, The Hundred Kronor Note, What will the Teacher say? and The Police are Coming!.
