Suatu hari, Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi terkejut karena pagar rumah mereka berubah. “Mengapa pagar rumah kita bermotif polkadot?” tanya Peri Novi. (One day, Dinda and Novi the Fairies are surprised because their house gate has changed. “Why is our house gate has polka dot pattern?” asks Novi.)

Rupanya, tidak hanya Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi yang pagar rumahnya berubah menjadi motif polkadot, tapi peri-peri tetangga mereka juga. “Siapa yang melakukan ini?” tanya mereka bingung.(Not only Dinda and Novi, their neighbors also have polka dot patterns on their gates. “Who did this?” they ask.)

 “Ayo, kita cari tahu,” kata Peri Dinda sambil mengayunkan tongkat ajaibnya di salah satu pagar bermotif polkadot. Lalu, muncullah bayangan seorang peri berambut merah. “Lolo!” seru Peri Novi terkejut. Peri Lolo adalah teman sekolah Peri Novi. (“Let’s find out,” says Dinda while swinging her magic wand at one of the polka dot gates. Then, a red-haired fairy appears. “Lolo!” shouts Novi in surprise. Lolo the Fairy is Novi’s school mate.)

Peri Novi dan Peri Dinda menemui Peri Lolo, dan bertanya mengapa dia mengubah pagar-pagar rumah peri menjadi polkadot. (Novi and Dinda see Lolo, and ask her why she changed the fairies’ gates into polka dot.)

“Itu karena aku ingin menjadi pelukis, tapi kakakku tidak suka!” tangis Peri Lolo. “Tapi melukis pagar milik peri lain itu salah,” nasihat Peri Dinda. “Bagaimana caranya supaya aku dibolehkan jadi pelukis?” tanya Peri Lolo. (“That’s because I want to be a painter, but my sister doesn’t like it!” cries Lolo. “But painting other fairies’ gates are wrong,” advises Dinda. “What can I do to be allowed to become a painter?” asks Lolo.)

“Kami akan membantumu,” kata Peri Novi. Peri Novi dan Peri Dinda menemui Ratu Peri dan menceritakan masalah Peri Lolo. “Aku akan mengadakan piknik, dan memerlukan tenda piknik. Akan kuadakan lomba melukis tenda piknik dan Lolo bisa ikut lomba itu,” kata Ratu Peri. (“We’ll help you,” says Novi. Novi and Dinda meet Queen Fairy and tell her about Lolo. “I will have a picnic and need a picnic tent. I will arrange a picnic tent painting competition, and Lolo can join,” she says.)

 Maka Peri Lolo mengikuti lomba melukis tenda. Kakak Lolo berjanji jika Lolo menjadi pemenang di lomba itu, maka Lolo dizinkan menjadi pelukis. “Aku pasti jadi pemenang!” kata Lolo bersemangat. (Lolo then joins the tent painting competition. Lolo’s sister promises that when Lolo wins, she will let Lolo become a painter. “I will be the winner!” says Lolo excitedly.)

Semangat Lolo tidak sia-sia karena dia meraih juara pertama di lomba melukis tenda. Tenda piknik lukisan Lolo yang bermotif polkadot warna-warni dipilih oleh Ratu Peri menjadi tenda pikniknya. Kakak Lolo menepati janjinya. Lolo sangat gembira dan dia berterima kasih pada Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi yang ikut senang. (Lolo’s fighting spirit works well because she gets first place in the competition. Lolo’s painting on the picnic tent with colorful polka dot pattern is chosen by the Queen Fairy to be her picnic tent. Her sister allows Lolo to be a painter. Lolo is very happy and thanks Dinda and Novi.)

“Kita tidak perlu menghapus pagar polkadot kita karena sekarang Lolo adalah pelukis terkenal!” kata Peri Novi. “Benar,” ujar Peri Dinda mengangguk sambil tertawa. Dan tetangga mereka pun setuju! (“We don’t have to erase our polka dot gate because now Lolo is a famous painter!” says Novi. “Right,” says Dinda laughing. Their neighbors also agree!)
