The Doll Carriage

001

It was the best birthday present ever in her short little life, that beautiful blue doll buggy made from tin.

She packed it full of dolls like sleepy-eyed sardines, upside down and backwards, arms and legs and heads in all directions.

When the wheels got rusty and wobbly with a terrible squeal that hurt their ears, her big brother helped transform the treasured carriage into an amazing spaceship painted shiny silver.

For their not-so-voluntary astronaut they chose the least suspicious barn cat, who appeared to have no great plans for his morning.

They climbed up to the crest of the rooftop on the chicken shed and launched him into outer space.
