A hamburger restaurant has opened in Sylvania Forest. Everybody loves the building, with its stylish mixture of red bricks and cream-coloured walls. The big sign on the roof is now a landmark in the town.
When the aroma of hamburgers fills the air, everybody’s stomach starts rumbling and they just have to go to the hamburger place!
When you open that special door...
“Hello! Come on in!”
There to welcome you are the owners, Fred the Silk Cat Father and his wife Holly. And then...
“What would you like today?”
There with a big smile is Tiffany the Silk Cat Girl. It’s a nice, relaxing place that is always busy with customers.
Holly the Silk Cat Mother is a good designer. She designed the interior of the restaurant, and the family’s 3-storey house, too.
Piers the Bear Boy is reading the menu above the counter.
“Fries and juice, and...should I have a fish burger, or a tomato burger?”
He just can’t decide!
In the end, he decides to have both. While he’s waiting, he watches with interest while Fred cooks the hamburgers and flavours the fries.
From the seats by the big window, you can always hear the girls laughing and playing.
Tiffany often stops to chat while she is working.
There are lots of other tables and a terrace in the restaurant so it is popular with mummies and daddies as well as children.
And everybody loves the drive-through! If you come by car, you stop at the drive-through window on the right side of the restaurant. You can order hamburgers, fries and other things from the menu on the outside wall, and they are delivered right to your car! But when the restaurant first opened there were a few problems.
It took a long time for people to get used to the drive-through.
“What’s a drive-through?” they said.
Nobody was very interested.
“With a drive-through, you can order hamburgers and drinks from your car”,
explained Fred, so one day the Chocolate Rabbit family decided to try it out. They ordered from the car, but when the food came they took it into the restaurant and ate it inside!
Yardley the Walnut Squirrel Mother came to the drive-through pushing a pram!
“Hamburger, please!” said a cute little voice, and right below the drive-through window were her babies with their toy cars! Some people have reversed their cars in, blocking the drive-through lane, and some people have even given their orders and driven off without getting their hamburgers!
Everyone laughs at all the odd things that happened. Now, of course, everybody knows how to use the drive-through, and sometimes families come simply because it’s there. These days the hamburger restaurant is very busy. “Hello! It’ll just be a few minutes”, Tiffany says as she moves happily around the restaurant.
One day when Tiffany came into the restaurant, she found her father there alone. He gave her a take-out bag.
“You always work so hard in the restaurant”, he said, “so I’m giving you this as a present”.
“Thank you, Daddy!” said Tiffany. She opened the bag, and in it was a hamburger.
“I was wondering what you liked best, and all I could think of was a hamburger”, said her father with an embarrassed laugh.
But when Tiffany saw the hamburger she said, “Wow! That is so cute!”
She was delighted! It was a special hamburger with the burger and bread shaped like Tiffany herself and a toothpick holding it all together. She ate it all in one bite, and it was delicious!
“Thank you, Daddy”, she said. “I know! Why don’t we put this on the menu, too?”
So as Tiffany suggested, a special burger was added to the menu. Now, all of the children love the special burger!
“It’s so cute!” they cry!
With great hamburgers and always a warm welcome from Tiffany, the Forest Hamburger Restaurant is growing more popular all the time!
