I cuccioli raccontano :Lyndon (by Sam Hogan)

Samuele ha inviato questa sua storia a un concorso ed è stato premiato con la pubblicazione sul sito di Londonist.

Traduco in breve:  Lyndon era un ladro e voleva diventare il ladro più famoso di Londra, ma, visto che la polizia lo beccava sempre poteva solo dire di essere il più grande “fuggitore” di Londra, non il più grande ladro.

Una notte con l’ aiuto di una fune si introduce nelle stanze della Regina per rubare i gioielli della Corona , ma poichè non aveva ascoltato le lezioni della maestra non sapeva che i gioielli della Corona si trovano nella Torre di Londra e non a Buckingham . Fruga dappertutto , ma trova solo un dolcetto alla marmellata.  Sente dei passi e si nasconde nell’ armadio dopo aver indossato alcune cose prese a casaccio. La Regina entra e cerca il suo pigiama nell’armadio. Vede Lyndon vestito in modo buffo e con la bocca sporca di marmellata ..prima si arrabbia e poi scoppia a ridere e lo invita a prendere un tè. Insieme vanno poi in giro per Londra e Lyndon alla fine propone  alla regina  di sposarla , ma naturalmente lei rifiuta  : è già sposata!!!. Lyndon , che non era stato attento a scuola , non sapeva che la Regina aveva già un marito.

Morale della favola: se vuoi diventare il più famoso ladro di Londra, ascolta la maestra!!!!  :-)

LYNDON THE GREATEST THIEF IN LONDON

Lyndon was a thief and had a dream: he wanted to become the greatest thief in London because when he sneaked in a house the police found him but he could escape fast. He was the greatest escaper not the greatest thief, unfortunately.
So, one night, Lyndon thought to steal something in the Queen’s room, the famous Crown’s Jewels for example. (Lyndon didn’t listen to the teacher at school so he didn’t know that the Crown’s Jewels are not kept in the Queen’s room but rather in the Tower of London!).
Finally his brain convinced him to go and sneak into the Queen’s house in Buckingham Palace to TRY and find some jewellery. Before leaving he remembered to bring his rope that he stole. He set off to the Palace and with his rope he threw it up to the Queen’s window, which was open luckily, and climbed up. He searched the whole room but found no beautiful jewels. But he saw something that everyone would not ignore…DELICIOUS VICTORIA SPONGE!!
Suddenly, he heard some noise which went like this…tip tap tip tap. Lyndon panicked but he finally got an idea. He looked into the wardrobe and put on, a blue hat, a red dress, some black shoes, a magenta bag and last but not least yellow leggings. He took the sponge and closed himself inside the wardrobe and waited.
The Queen came into the room and she felt something was missing…Her pyjamas!! She went to the wardrobe and she looked inside and there was Lyndon with the messy sponge all over her beautiful clothes. At the beginning she was angry but then she laughed because Lyndon had so many different colours on and also a big mouth full of sponge and jam.
So she invited him to have tea. The next day both of them went on yeah the London Eye and see Big Ben. That one night Lyndon said “Will you marry me?” “Of course not! I’m already married!” “Oh I forgot”. (Lyndon did not listen to the teacher at school and did not know in fact so he was lying).
The morale of this story is…If you want to be the greatest thief in London, you should listen to the teacher!
