“The last house on Sunny Lane was a dismal, decaying dump. It had been empty for as long as anyone can remember, and its peeling paint, cracked windows, and broken garden gate made it real eyesore.
Then one day, out of the blue, a team of workmen arrived in a van. They pulled out ladders, pipes, wooden boards, and a bunch of tools, and got to work, fixing up the shabby old house.
Soon the walls were nice and smooth, the windows had shiny new glass in, and the garden gate was back on his hinges.
“When all was done, a car drew up outside the house. Mr. Krankowitz stared at the car in disbelief. It was bright red with an open top, and merry music was playing on the CD player. As for the driver – Mr. Krankowitz nearly fell over. The fellow was dressed as a clown – complete with red nose, funny hat, and a great big grin!”
