...Once, during her holidays, a girl went to visit her grandmother. After they exchanged presents and drunk their tea with some vanilla pancakes, the grandmother fell asleep in her armchair, and the girl climbed the stairs to the second floor, and went into a room where there were stocked a lot of old grandmothers toys, with which she used to play when she was a little girl; dolls and their little toy houses…Because even if she`s old now, she used to be a little girl, too, right? So, our little girl liked to come into the room and she always found something new in there.
But on that one day during the holidays, she found two big old books. When she looked at the scratched darkblue cover of the first one, she saw some words in a strange language. “I wonder what this means” she thought and opened the book. On the first page there was a drawing of a dog. But it wasn`t just a dog! The dog was wearing a marvelous dress, with brilliants in it. “She must be a real queen! Or maybe she`s a countess …” the girl thought. On the next page there appeared a Cavalier wearing a red general costume with a blue ribbon across. And then, as the pages turned over, more and more dogs in costumes appeared. The girl opened the second book, and saw magnificient cats, dressed as dogs, in magical clothes. Probably it was a Kingdom, where lived Honorable Animals! But not just honorable, but the most beautifully dressed and gorgeous ones...

The little girl was browsing through those unusual portraits all evening. When she finally fell asleep, she went to The Magical Kingdom of dogs and cats in her dreams, and met her friends from that wonderful books she was looking at earlier. Later, she went into the stock room with the old toys, and looked through her favorite books, examining every little detail of the drawings and trying to memorize them. But once, the books disappeared…It was so strange, because nobody could steal it or hide it anywhere. It just magically disappeared…

And then, the little girl decided to become an artist and to draw who she saw in that books full of mysteries. She memorized all the dogs and cats with their marvelous costumes and beautiful eyes that were so closely looking at her from the pages of the books. And her dream came true: the girl grew up, passed the exams into the Academy of Art, learned the technique of drawing and painting and became a wonderful artist. And no wonder, because she had so talented teachers...
