Bob Has 40 Watermelons

by PDAlice Keeler


Bob loved watermelons. He loved their juicy sweetness, their vibrant green skin, and how they cooled him down on hot summer days. This summer, he had an extraordinary collection of 40 watermelons, which he wanted to share in a unique way with his friends in town.

Bob, being the generous person he was, gave her 7 watermelons without hesitation.
