在海洋的中央,有一个弧形小岛。在这里,猴子在沙滩上和树上玩耍。但是这些猴子是如何到达那里的呢?

Once, an English admiral was exploring Africa when he found hundreds of monkeys. The admiral's character was mean. He thought, "I could sell these monkeys and become very rich! I'm going to take them to England. "

曾经一位英国海军上将在非洲探险时发现了数百只猴子。为人险恶的他心想:“我可以卖掉这些猴子,然后变得非常有钱!我要把它们带回英国。"

So the admiral set traps to catch the monkeys. He put stakes in the ground, tied string around them and made loops in the string. When the monkeys ran through the forest, their feet got caught in the loops, and they couldn't escape. Then the admiral put the monkeys in cages on his ship and sailed away.

因此,海军上将设置陷阱来捕捉猴子。他把木桩插在地上,用绳子把木桩围起来,并将绳子打个圈。猴子们在森林里来回跑动时,脚被套圈缠住了,无法逃脱。然后,海军上将把猴子关进笼子,坐船离开了。

The cages were small and uncomfortable. There was no soft hay for the monkeys to sleep on. Instead, they slept on branches with sharp thorns that cut into the monkeys' flesh. For dinner, he gave them tiny pieces of sour grapefruit to eat. The monkeys grew hungry and weak.

笼子又小又不舒服,而且没有柔软的干草给猴子们睡觉。相反,他们睡在一堆树枝上,树枝上锋利的刺刺进猴子的肉里。晚饭只给它们一小片酸葡萄柚吃。猴子们又饿又虚弱。

But one day, the admiral hired a new steward. He was a kind man with a good conscience. He was horrified to see the thin monkeys in the cages. So one night he let them out.

但是有一天,海军上将雇了一个新的管家。他是一个有良知的好人。看到笼子里的瘦猴子,他吓坏了。于是有一天晚上,他把它们放了出来。

The monkeys ran and played all over the ship! They attacked the admiral and the steward and ate their food. They completely wrecked the ship. One monkey ran into a kerosene lamp, and it fell over. The ship caught fire and began to sink! The whole crew was lost except for the monkeys.

猴子们在船上上蹿下跳,到处玩耍!他们袭击了上将和管家,吃掉了他们的食物。他们把船完全毁了。一只猴子将一盏煤油灯撞掉了下来,因此将船引燃并开始下沉!除了那些猴子,所有船员无一幸免于难。

After the accident, the monkeys jumped onto a raft. They floated away from the fiery blaze of the ship. In the morning, they saw a little island in the distance. The monkeys used a piece of wood as a paddle, and they went toward it. They found the island shaped like an arc. They felt so happy to find a new home, and they still live there today.
