The hat jumped over a toadstool.He took off his hat and laid it on the grass beside him.


POP! Up jumped his hat.


Up jumped Harry, but he did not catch his hat.

The hat jumped through a patch of violets.Harry jumped over the toadstool and chased his hat down the path.


The hat jumped through a patch of violets.


Harry jumped through the violets and followed his hat to a stream.


 


The hat jumped across the stream on three falt rocks.


 


The hat jumped across the stream on three flat rocks.


 


Harry jumped on the first two flat rocks, but he missed the last SPLASH!one. SPLASH! went Harry, into the stream.


Harry saw his hat disappear into a hollow log.


Harry saw his hat desappear into a hollow log.He ran around to the other end of the log and waited.


Out came the hat—jump! jump! jump!—right into Harry’s hands.


 


"I'm sorry, frog," he said. "You can't have my hat. You will have to find one of your own."Harry looked under his hat. He laughed. “I’m sorry, frog,” he said. “You can’t have my hat. You will have to find one of your own.”


And the fat green frog hopped away, jump! jump!
