In the middle of the ocean, there is a small island shaped like an arc. Here, monkeys play on the beach and in the trees. But how did the monkeys get there?

在海洋的中央,有一個弧形小島。在這里,猴子在沙灘上和樹上玩耍。但是這些猴子是如何到達那里的呢?

Once, an English admiral was exploring Africa when he found hundreds of monkeys. The admiral's character was mean. He thought, "I could sell these monkeys and become very rich! I'm going to take them to England. "

曾經一位英國海軍上將在非洲探險時發現了數百只猴子。為人險惡的他心想:“我可以賣掉這些猴子,然后變得非常有錢!我要把它們帶回英國。"

So the admiral set traps to catch the monkeys. He put stakes in the ground, tied string around them and made loops in the string. When the monkeys ran through the forest, their feet got caught in the loops, and they couldn't escape. Then the admiral put the monkeys in cages on his ship and sailed away.

因此,海軍上將設置陷阱來捕捉猴子。他把木樁插在地上,用繩子把木樁圍起來,并將繩子打個圈。猴子們在森林里來回跑動時,腳被套圈纏住了,無法逃脫。然后,海軍上將把猴子關進籠子,坐船離開了。

The cages were small and uncomfortable. There was no soft hay for the monkeys to sleep on. Instead, they slept on branches with sharp thorns that cut into the monkeys' flesh. For dinner, he gave them tiny pieces of sour grapefruit to eat. The monkeys grew hungry and weak.

籠子又小又不舒服,而且沒有柔軟的干草給猴子們睡覺。相反,他們睡在一堆樹枝上,樹枝上鋒利的刺刺進猴子的肉里。晚飯只給它們一小片酸葡萄柚吃。猴子們又餓又虛弱。

But one day, the admiral hired a new steward. He was a kind man with a good conscience. He was horrified to see the thin monkeys in the cages. So one night he let them out.

但是有一天,海軍上將雇了一個新的管家。他是一個有良知的好人。看到籠子里的瘦猴子,他嚇壞了。于是有一天晚上,他把它們放了出來。

The monkeys ran and played all over the ship! They attacked the admiral and the steward and ate their food. They completely wrecked the ship. One monkey ran into a kerosene lamp, and it fell over. The ship caught fire and began to sink! The whole crew was lost except for the monkeys.

猴子們在船上上躥下跳,到處玩耍!他們襲擊了上將和管家,吃掉了他們的食物。他們把船完全毀了。一只猴子將一盞煤油燈撞掉了下來,因此將船引燃并開始下沉!除了那些猴子,所有船員無一幸免于難。

After the accident, the monkeys jumped onto a raft. They floated away from the fiery blaze of the ship. In the morning, they saw a little island in the distance. The monkeys used a piece of wood as a paddle, and they went toward it. They found the island shaped like an arc. They felt so happy to find a new home, and they still live there today.

事故發生后,猴子們跳上了木筏。他們逃離了熊熊燃燒的火焰,漂走了。早晨,他們看見遠處有一個小島。猴子們用一塊木頭當槳,朝它劃去。他們發現了這個弧形島,很高興能找到一個新家,直到今天他們還住在那里。
