While he was rummaging, Andre found a big box of paints.
“Hey! I could paint myself with these lovely bright colours THEN I’d get invited to lots of parties!” he exclaimed.
He’d feel very at home in anyone’s kitchen.
Fedora, the pretty pink flamingo, wasn’t sure. “Try out a few ideas first,” she advised and found some clean sheets of paper.
“Now what should I paint first?” said Andre clasping his hands gaily.
“I’ll paint the town,” he decided. “And I’m going to paint it red.”
Andre was busy creating his masterpieces when Morris the mop arrived.
“Let ME paint YOU,” he volunteered, but Andre wasn’t too sure because he knew Morris was terribly messy. But Morris took no notice and as a result, Andre was soon splattered in paint…
…along with everything else.
