Betty’s Quest to Save Acorn Hollows
Betty loved visiting her grandma every summer. Her grandma lived in the village of Wobbly Bottom, in a little house called Glebe End at the end of a row of cottages. At the bottom of Grandma’s garden, there was a little gate that led to Acorn Hollows, a shared garden for all the cottages. Acorn Hollows was Betty’s favorite place in the whole world. It had trees of all shapes and sizes, wildflowers that danced and bloomed, and the greenest grass she had ever seen. In the center of the garden stood an oak tree, where Betty loved to swing.
From there, she could observe all the creatures that lived in the garden. Acorn Hollows was vibrant, alive with every sound and bright with every color. Grandma grew various berries like raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and gooseberries, and Betty would help pick the fruits and turn them into delicious jams to sell in the market.
One summer morning, Betty woke up with excitement. It was market day. However, when she looked out of the window, the grass was a mess, all heckled and puffed. The once smooth path was now muddy and rough. She called out to Grandma, “Grandma, come quick! Somebody’s ruined our garden!”
“What a mess,” said Grandma. “I don’t know who did this, but we don’t have time to find out now. We must go or we’ll be late for the market.”
The market was bustling with activity. Everyone wanted to buy Grandma’s delicious jams. By tea time, they had sold the very last jar. As they were packing up their stall to leave, Betty couldn’t stop thinking about the ruined garden. She felt determined to find out who had tried to destroy Acorn Hollows.
