Read the following text twice.
Max is nine years old and lives near a river in a very big house. He has a very big family. He lives with his two brothers and two sisters, his mum and dad, his grandmother and grandfather and his uncle Bob. What a big family!
But Max is not happy. He is very small. His brothers and sisters laugh at him because he is so small.
When they go to the shop for ice-cream Max can’t go fast. “Ha, ha, ha!” they laugh, and they leave Max behind1. They are not nice to him and when they play basketball with their friends, he can often only watch.
One day there is a bad storm. It rains and rains and rains. Water fills the river and soon it is very big and very fast and the water goes into the street.
Max’s house is now an island2. There is water all around it.
It rains for six days. Everybody stays in the house and they eat all the food3 in the house. After six days there is no food to eat.
“No food and no electricity4,” says Max’s father. “What can we do? Why can’t I swim? Nobody5 can swim in this family.”
Nobody? Max can swim. He has swimming lessons at school.
He looks at the fast river. Then he jumps into the water and starts to swim. “Look!” shout his brothers and sisters. “Look at Max! He is swimming!”
Then Max is at the next house. This house has a telephone and he phones the police. After 30 minutes the police come in boats6 and take the family to a dry place and give them food.
Max is very tired7 but very happy. Everyone in the family is very proud8 of him … and they never leave him behind again.
