A Wish for Koko (Ch. 1)
Penny had to tell Koko, and Koko cried and cried. She signed, “Sad, cry, frown.” When Collie died, I cried, too.
Later, when Penny asked her what happened to All Ball, Koko signed, “Sleep cat.” She understood what death was. And she signed “blind” because she would never see All Ball again.
People wrote letters to Koko to cheer her up. And one day something wonderful happened. Koko got another kitten! She held him and kissed him, and carried him around like All Ball. And she named him Lipstick.
I know she never forgot All Ball and I won‟t ever forget Collie. But Koko was happy again and so was I, because it was a happy ending.
