This news is from Paris. There is an exhibition at a museum. There is a haystack in the museum. The president of the museum puts a needle in the haystack.

An artist tries to find the needle. He is Italian. He has 48 hours to find it. This artist does strange things sometimes. For example, he was in a room with a cow for 24 hours.

Difficult words: exhibition (an art show), haystack (a lot of hay which is dry grass), needle (a thin piece of metal with a point at one end).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
