Dexter was a young blue and yellow Peacock that lived with his mother. They had a

small log cabin in the foothills of Mount Benson on Vancouver Island, Canada. His home

was quite small but it had a big back yard that had a swing, monkey bars, slide, a tree

house and a big sand box. Although he had lots of stuff to play with he was lonely. He

had no brothers, sisters or close friends. Sometimes his mother would come out and play

for awhile but usually she was too busy cooking and baking in the kitchen. She was a

great cook. Dexter’s mom supplied grocery stores and restaurants with her homemade

cookies and special desserts. One thing that she always did for Dexter was make sure his

favourite Cookie Jar was always full of cookies or special treats. Dexter loved cookies so

much that he actually called the cookie jar, his best friend.

Dexter woke up early one morning as the bright warm summer sun was shining on his

face. He climbed out of bed and made his way to the kitchen for breakfast. His mother

was still sleeping. He went to the cookie jar and carefully opened it and grabbed a few

big cookies and put the lid back on quietly so he would not wake his mom. He plopped

them into the toaster as he poured himself a bowl of cereal. His favourite breakfast was

cereal with hot chocolate chip cookies on top, drizzled with milk. Within minutes the

cookies popped up and he created his breakfast treat.
