Bod and the Cake
Bod receives a telephone call from Aunt Flo inviting him to tea. She is making a chocolate cake. She asks him to invite PC Copper, Frank and Barleymow as well. She asks Bod to ring her before they arrive to remind her to take the cake out of the oven. Everyone is busy but makes double time efforts to finish their work so they can go to tea at Aunt Flo's.
The arrive at number twenty three where Aunt Flo lives. Poor Bod feels terrible as he has suddenly remembered that he forgot to remind Aunt Flo about the cake. Aunt Flo had actually forgot to put the cake in the oven so it is quite alright. The others, however, are a little disappointed but do not show it. They all tuck in to sandwiches and tea. Aunt Flo promises to bake the cake tomorrow and invite them all round for tea once again.
Bod and the Kite
Bod has beautiful red kite and wants to fly it. He goes up to the top of a small hill and tries to fly the kite. Alas, it comes down very quickly. Along comes Frank the Postman who offers to tie it to his bicycle and then rides down the hill in an attempt to get the kite to fly. Alas that too fails. Soon, Farmer Barleymow comes along with his big tractor and pulls the kite along but that too fails. Eventually PC Copper arrives with the police helicopter. He is using it today to spot traffic jams. He attaches the kite to the helicopter and tries to get it to fly but it ends in failure.
Eventually Aunt Flo arrives with a lovely picnic to cheer them all up. What a lovely idea and pretty soon everyone tucking in to the food. Bod soon drifts off to sleep and dreams of kites. Back in the real world, his red kite is suddenly picked up by a breeze and it sails into the air. The others are all very impressed that Bod has somehow managed to fly the kite.
