Colette's Lost Pet
Colette is new in the Mile End neighborhood. She can see plenty of other kids in the streets, and she wants to become their friend very much. But what could she possibly talk about with them?
Colette takes a leap and timidly invents a problem: she has lost her pet parakeet, and could someone please help her find it? Her fib works all too well! Soon the tales of her bird have reached mythic proportions, and every kid in the neighborhood is involved in the "search." Do they believe her? Or is it just more fun to pretend?
