Chapter 1 • The Anti-Gravity Hat and the Three Fairy Guitar Sisters
Cozmic Cat put on his anti-gravity hat and began to fly! He flew into the house, over a table in the kitchen, down the hall, up the stairs and right out the bedroom window. Cozmo flew under the moon and the stars and out over the city. He flew like a butterfly fluttering across the sky and then suddenly shot out into space like a rocket. “This is spectacular!” Cozmo shouted out as he gazed down on the city below. He spent some time enjoying the skyline and then felt it was time to fly back home and start practicing on his drums.
One and two and three and four, tat-tat-tat-tat, boom-bubba-boom-boom! Cozmo began to practice a new beat on the drums. The feline genius had been working on the anti-gravity hat for a number of years and always enjoyed playing the drums to relax after a long day of experimentation. Cozmic Cat did not invent the hat so that he would be able to fly. The feline genius had invented the hat because ordinary hats made his ears wiggle. Unlike an ordinary hat that sat on top of his head, the anti-gravity hat floated just above his head and between his ears. “How wonderful.” He thought to himself as he continued to beat on the drums. “A hat that doesn’t make my ears wiggle.”
As he continued to practice Cozmo looked up and was surprised to see that the anti-gravity hat had begun to sway back and forth to the beat of his drums.
“Wow!” This is really strange.” Cozmic Cat said to himself. “My hat is dancing with the beat.” A few moments later he heard music coming out of the hat as it danced above his head. The music coming out of the hat grew louder and louder. Then, all of a sudden, three little guitar fairies flew out from under his hat. Shocked and surprised at what he saw, Cozmo listened as the first guitar fairy began to speak.
“Hello. I’m Splash.” Said the first guitar fairy. This was followed quickly by another, “Hello. I’m Blam.” The third guitar fairy then greeted Cozmic Cat. “Hello. I’m Blast.”
“We heard you playing the drums and came to sing along.” They all said together.
“That sounds great!” Cozmic Cat responded. “My name is Cozmo. Let’s Jam!” They sang songs until sunrise and then the drumming cat invited the guitar fairies to join him for his favorite breakfast of eggs and toast with raspberry jam and a slice of cheddar cheese.
After breakfast it was time for a nap. Cozmo found his favorite spot where the sunlight streamed through the window and warmed a pillow sitting on the floor. He got cozy and invited the fairy sisters to take a nap with him. Each of the fairies found a nice warm spot on Cozmic Cat’s furry coat and they all fell asleep together in the sunlight.
