Come to the party!
It was Marys birthday. She received a letter from her uncle. "Dear Mary," he wrote in the letter. "Happy birthday. Im sending you some chickens. They will arrive tomorrow. I hope youll like them. Uncle Toby."
Mary was very pleased. She liked eating eggs and chicken. "I can keep the chickens for their eggs or eat them," she thought.
When the chickens arrived the next day, they were put in a box. Mary was very happy. She took the box off the truck and began to carry it into her garden, but the box of chickens was so heavy that she dropped it.
The box fell on the ground and broke. The chickens all ran out. They ran here and there. Mary spent hours in trying to find them.
A few days later her uncle came. He asked, "Did the chickens arrive safely?" "Yes, but I dropped the box. It broke open and the chickens ran everywhere. It took me the whole morning to look for them," Mary said.
"Did you find them all?" asked her uncle. "I hope so." Mary answered. "But I only caught eleven of them."
"Thats very interesting. I only sent you six." her uncle said with a smile.根据短文内容选择正确答案
