A shop has a visitor. The visitor is a monkey. A man in the shop gives a piece of fruit to the monkey.

Then the monkey goes into the shop. He sits on a chair. Then he takes some money and he runs away. The monkey is a thief!

The man wants the money back. He tries to give the monkey a banana. The monkey does not want it. He runs away with 10,000 rupees. This is about 150 US dollars.

The man knows this monkey. The monkey was at the shop before. Now the man is more careful.

Difficult words: thief (somebody who steals), careful (when you do not do dangerous things).
