Адаптированная книга на английском языке «Missing Coins by John Escott». Аудиокнига на английском.
Bath is a very old city in England. It has a beautiful Abbey. A lot of people visit the city every year. And in the summer there are always a lot of tourists in the streets. Pete and Carla are students in Bath. They like the city. Pete likes looking at the beautiful old buildings. Carla likes walking in the little streets. She often finds pretty little shops there and goes into them. Or she sits with Pete in a café and watches the tourists. It’s a Saturday in summer and a hot afternoon. There are a lot of tourists in the city today. People from many countries are going into the Abbey.
‘Let’s find a quiet street, away from the tourists,’ Carla says.
‘OK,’ Pete says. He likes being with Carla.
They walk away from the Abbey.
After some time, they are in a little street behind the Abbey.
‘This is pretty,’ Carla says.
There are only two or three tourists in this street. The shops have small windows. Some houses have pretty little gardens.
It’s quiet her£, but Pete and Carla can hear music.
‘Look,’ Pete says. ‘That man is playing a flute. Let’s go and listen.’
They walk across the street and watch the man. Four or five people are listening.
‘Why is he playing here?’ Carla asks. ‘There aren’t many tourists in this street.’
‘No,’ Pete says. ‘And there are only three or four coins in his hat.’
Pete and Carla listen to the flute player. The tune is Greensleeves.
‘I know that tune!’ Carla says.
And she puts a coin in the man’s hat. Pete takes her hand.
‘Let’s go, Carla,’ he says to her. ‘Let’s see the shops in the next street.’
‘OK,’ Carla says. They walk away.
The flute player watches them but his tune, Greensleeves, doesn’t stop,
‘He isn’t a very good flute player,’ Pete says.
