The big, grey castle was cold and damp and the DRAWBRIDGE didn't work very well. In the hall of the castle was a giant GRANDFATHER CLOCK . Early one morning, DRACULA'S COUSIN clattered up to the castle on his horse, and went across the DRAWBRIDGE .. . He passed the GRANDFATHER CLOCK on the way to his room, and was just settling down to a nice day's rest in his coffin, when his servant BORIS entered the room. DRACULA'S COUSIN .. said to BORIS "Why do you disturb my rest? What do you want?" BORIS answered "We need some repairs around here. The DRAWBRIDGE squeaks, and the GRANDFATHER CLOCK . only strikes twice". DRACULA'S COUSIN .. said, "Don't bother me, get my friend the WEREWOLF to help you. Now get out!" So BORIS .. started looking all over the castle for the WEREWOLF Meanwhile down in the village the BOY .. and his SISTER . Had just finished breakfast, and were going to play with their friends, the FROG and the POODLE . Pretty soon the FROG . Got tired of playing and hopped away.
