Di sebuah taman, ada pohon apel cantik yang rimbun bernama Popa. Suatu hari, seorang gadis kecil bernama Lila datang bermain ke taman dan mengajaknya berteman. Tak lama, teman mereka bertambah satu lagi dengan kehadiran Kuku si kupu-kupu. ( In a park, stands a beautiful and lush apple tree named Popa. One day, a little girl named Lila visit the park to play and befriend Popa. Not long after, the friendship becomes a group with Kuku the butterfly joining.)

Pada suatu hari, Kuku  datang ke rumah Lila dan berseru panik, “Gawat!” Lila terkejut mendengar teriakan Kuku. “Ada apa, Kuku?” tanya Lila khawatir. “Taman tempat tinggal Popa terbakar!” jawab Kuku. Lila dan Kuku bergegas pergi ke taman dan melihat Popa menangis di luar taman yang gersang akibat kebakaran. “Popa, maaf kami tidak bisa menyelamatkan tempat tinggalmu,” kata Lila dan Kuku prihatin. “Ini bukan salah kalian, tapi ulah si gagak jahat,” ucap Popa sedih. ( One day, Kuku comes to Lila’s house crying in panic, “Oh no!” Lila is surprised to hear Kuku’s cry. “What is it, Kuku?” Lila asks in worry. “The park where Popa lives is on fire!” answers Kuku. Lila and Kuku rush to the park and sees Popa crying outside the park that is scorched by the fire. “Popa, we’re sorry we couldn’t save your home,” Lila and Kuku express their concern. “It’s not your fault, it’s the evil crow’s,” says the sad Popa.)

Akhirnya, Popa tinggal di kebun rumah Lila karena tidak bisa tinggal di taman lagi. Akan tetapi, udara di pekarangan Lila tidak sesejuk seperti di taman. Popa tidak berbuah dan sakit-sakitan. “Kita harus menolong Popa, Lila. Kita harus mencari tempat tinggal baru untuk Popa,” usul Kuku. Lila mengangguk setuju. ( Finally, Popa lives in the garden at Lila’s house because he couldn’t live in the park anymore. However, the air in Lila’s back yard is not as cool as it was in the park. Popa bear no fruits and is falling ill. “We have to help Popa, Lila. We must find a new place for Popa to live,” Kuku suggests. Lila nods in approval.)

Lila dan Kuku pun pergi mencari tempat tinggal yang sejuk untuk Popa. Sampai akhirnya, Lila dan Kuku pergi ke daerah pegunungan dan melihat pohon apel yang mirip dengan Popa. “Kami punya teman pohon apel yang sangat mirip denganmu, namanya Popa,” kata Lila dan Kuku kepada pohon apel tersebut. “Popa? Dia saudara kembarku yang hilang. Aku harap dia mau tinggal bersamaku. Namaku Popo,” ucap si pohon apel. ( Lila and Kuku are then off to find a cool place for Popa to live. Eventually, Lila and Kuku arrive in a mountainous region and come across an apple tree that looks like Popa. “we have a friend, an apple tree that looks like you, named Popa,” explain Lila and Kuku to the apple tree. “Popa? He is my long lost twin brother. I hope he wants to live with me. My name is Popo,” says the apple tree. )

Setelah itu, Popa tinggal bersama saudara kembarnya Popo di daerah pegunungan yang sejuk dan indah. “Aku kehilangan taman tempat tinggalku yang dulu, tapi sekarang aku mendapat tempat tinggal yang lebih baik bersama dengan saudara kembarku,” kata Popa. ( Afterwards, Popa lives with his twin brother Popo in the cool and scenic mountainous region. “I lost the park where I lived, but now I have a better place to live next to my twin brother,” says Popa.)
