In England, someone goes to a museum. This person leaves a balloon. The balloon looks like a cartoon character. The character is from a movie. The movie is about a thief.
The museum closes. The balloon bobs around the museum. A camera films this.
People at the museum put the video on the Internet. People think that the video is funny. They think that the balloon is planning to steal something.
Difficult words: cartoon character (a person in an animated movie or TV show), thief (a person who steals things), bob (to move up and down).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
