It moves and flies off into the air. “Hey!” “What’s happening?” A loud booming voice comes from the carpet. “Welcome, O Master. I am a magic carpet.” First they fly high up into the sky and then land in a jungle. It is hot and wet and it’s raining. Then they fly to the desert. It is very, very hot and dry. After that they fly to the South Pole. There is lots of ice and snow. It’s freezing. “Where are we now? I can’t see!” “In the mountains, can you see me?” “It`s very foggy.” Then they fly to a forest. It`s very windy there. Then they fly to an island in the sea. There is thunder and lighting “Aaaagh” “Let`s go home!” Finally they fly back home. The carpet lands in the shop and Ali gets off. “Wow!” “What an adventure!”The teacher is the main speaker who also changes the voice when pretending to be Aliand mimicking the weather conditions.
