|In MotherOwl's garden in a quiet corner stood an old apple tree all alone. The apples on this tree were sour, almost inedible, and MotherOwl never bothered to pick them. Neither did the children of the village ever steal more than one apple. This was very lucky, because the apples were inhabited, at least some of them. The Droplets lived there, and they liked their quiet corner. .|

A mysterious hole
En dag kom Grønne løbende hen til æblehusene i en vældig fart.
"Kom og se," råbte Grønne til Røde og Lilla, "jeg har fundet et underligt hul i et af forfatterens gamle bistader!"
Grønne gik i forvejen, medens Lilla og Røde fulgte tøvende efter.
Grønne var stadig nysgerrig og mente nok at der ville komme noget spændende ud af det hul. Derfor satte han sig ned og ventede.

Yellow called out for the other Droplets: "Help me! I can't get out!"
|Grønne og Røde hørte Gules råb og kom løbende. De begyndte at hive og flå i istapperne. »Øv,« sagde Grønne til sidst, »vi hiver og flår, og det eneste, vi får ud af det, er at vælte Gules æblehus.«|
"Ouch!" Green said, "we're pulling and pulling, and the icicles won't budge. We're almost tumbling over Yellow's home."
|»Nu kommer jeg,« råbte Blå der kom farende henne fra hønsehuset, »og jeg har fået en god idé. Jeg fandt en økse. Så kan vi hugge istapperne over.«|
"I have found an axe," he said as he came running. "Let me chop away the icicles. That's better."
"I have an idea," Green said. "Let's save all the icicles for summer. Then we can make ice cream and cool off."
"Cool," Purple said. "Let me help."
They build an apple house for the icicles. The house had no windows, and the walls were very thick.
Green took a lot of the smallest pieces and went home. He did not tell what he was going to do.
A bit later Yellow was able to open her door.
Then Green arriwed. He had used all the littel bits and pieces to make ice cream.
All the Droplets sat in the sun outside Yellows house and ate the delicious ice cream.
"You know what, Green," Blue said with a satisfied smile. "This is good. You are going to make lots more this summer I hope."

En forårsdag, da tulipanerne rigtig blomstrede, kiggede Lilla op i æbletræet, og så en ballon, der var filtret ind i træets grene.
Purple untangled the strin, but instead op the balloon slowly carrying Purple down from the tree it started drifting upwards!
He became afraid. And down under the apple tree all the other Droplets stood, calling Purple's name.
All the other Droplets climbed the apple tree until they could ract Purple, and then they slowly pulled him and the balloon down to the solid earth.
|De tøjrede ballonen til en tulipan og gik i seng.|
All the other Droplets found it to be a grand idea. Yellow and Purple found some strings whish they tied into a net over the balloon. Red had a big basket, which he brougth on a mini-skateboard.
Green asked if he should help carry the basket. "No thanks," Red answered. "This is much easier than carrying it."
Udsigten var meget smuk. De svævede op over forfatterens hus, så de kunne se det røde tag og lugte røgen fra skorstenen. "Nej se," sagde Blå, "vi kan se vejrhanen på kirketårnet derovre, bag ved vores æbletræ!."
"Oh look," Blue said. We can see the weather cock at the church on the hill, behind our apple tree."
"Get away, ugly monster!" Green screamed, and slashed after the wasp with a loose rope. That was a stupid idea. He scared the wasp, and it stung the balloon with its stinger, making a little hole.
The air went out os the balloon with a long, loud sound, and the balloon with the Droplets slowly fell from the skies.
Heldigvis sad ballonen igen fast i æbletræets grene, så de landede i god behold i forfatterens have.

|Blue filled up his sack with wheat grains. Mama Greenfinch sat on the edge looking. Luckily there were lots of wheat in the mix, and Blue had his sack full in a hurry.|
|Blue went home through the snow and ground the grains. He baked a wonderful big bread. And when it was done he went in search of the other Droplets. Blue thought they were hungry as well.|
