1. I had a brontosaurus that every day ate seven hundred boiled eggs and fifty jars of pickled onions. Sunday came and we went to the park but soon he disappeared to go complain with anyone who wants to hear that once I tricked him with the promise of a cake and take him instead to see an evil doctor.

2. He couldn't fit inside the house, therefore at night he had to sleep over the roof and then the stars sang him sweets songs made up with ukuleles.

4. But afterwards, instead of the promised fluffy marshmallow pachyderm covered with chocolate, they paid him with a zany and cunning Martian mouse.

5. In the morning he woke up and everywhere looked for his mouse, under the pillow he went checking every spot. He was really worried when the breakfast was being served and the mouse didn’t show up. The cook suggested "we have to alert the Navy, the firefighters and the postal service: a Martian mouse that mocks and makes sour faces is loose around the neighborhood!”

6. No one believed the cook and she was so offended that moved to Patagonia without leaving any note, so the nervous brontosaurus had to go door to door to ask who may have seen Panurge, such was the name he gave his mouse.

11. Across the Seven Seas they flew upside down questioning lovely sirens and ravenous castaways “have you seen a Martian mouse?” One day were flying back from China and met a man so melancholic that one eye he kept under his hat, saving it to cry his mourn, but with the other he described the strangest creature with the nose like an old boot.

12. They arrived to a farm in the savannah and from a milkmaid bought a cheese made up of sawdust and newspaper clippings. They couldn’t say what was more spurious, the wooden cow or the disguised Martian mouse, but they simply played along.

13. The amateur detective and his dog stayed for dinner and Panurge cut-out a salad from an old encyclopedia. By and by they said good night and went to sleep, but then the dog began to howl a secret message to the moon. Who could be up there still awake at such an hour?

14. The brontosaurus was so obsessed with that mouse nobody saw but only him in a faded dream, that I took him to the doctor, once again with the false promise of a cake. The doctor said “your brontosaurus is a dangerous lunatic!” I sent him consequently to the moon.
