“Novi, bagaimana kalau kita pergi piknik?” tanya Peri Dinda suatu hari. “Ide yang bagus, Kakak! Aku akan memasak hidangan utama,” jawab Peri Novi. “Dan aku akan membuat kue serta minuman!”  kata Peri Dinda.  (“Novi, what if we go on a picnic?” asks Dinda one day. “Great idea, Sister! I will cook the main dish,” answers Novi. “And I will make cookies and drinks!” says Dinda.)

Setelah menentukan menu makanan dan minuman, Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi lalu menentukan tempat piknik. “Bagaimana kalau kita piknik di taman bunga melati saja? Taman itu tidak jauh dari rumah,” usul Peri Novi. “Aku setuju!” ujar Peri Dinda tersenyum senang. (After settling on food and drinks, Dinda and Novi look for a place to have their picnic. “What if we go to the jasmine garden? It’s not far from home,” suggests Novi. “I agree!” says Dinda smiling.)

Hari piknik tiba, Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi membawa keranjang makanan mereka dan peralatan piknik sambil bersenandung bahagia. Di tengah perjalanan, Peri Novi menengok ke belakang. “Aku merasa ada yang mengikuti kita,” kata Peri Novi. “Kau benar,” angguk Peri Dinda setuju. “Jangan malu-malu, ayo keluarlah!” kata Peri Novi. Lalu keluarlah keluarga tupai yang terdiri dari kakak dan 3 adiknya. (On picnic day, Dinda and Novi bring their food basket and picnic equipment while humming happily. On the way, Novi looks back. “I feel like someone is following us,” she says. “You’re right,” agrees Dinda. “Don’t be shy, just come out!” says Novi. Out appears a family of squirrels, a brother and his three little siblings. )

“Maaf, kami mencium aroma lezat makanan yang kalian bawa,” kata si kakak tupai. “Ada cukup banyak makanan, ayo ikut piknik bersama kami!” ajak Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi. Maka kakak tupai dan 3 adiknya ikut piknik bersama Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi. Tapi 3 adik tupai makan dengan rakusnya dan makanan Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi habis tak tersisa! (“Sorry, we smell the delicious aroma of your food,” says Brother Squirrel. “There are many, let’s go on a picnic with us!” ask Dinda and Novi. Brother Squirrel and his siblings come along with Dinda and Novi.But the three siblings eat so much that Dinda and Novi’s food is completely gone!)

Kakak tupai sangat malu dan menyesal.  Sebagai gantinya, kakak tupai membawakan kacang buatannya sendiri untuk Peri Dinda dan Novi. “Maafkan aku, aku hanya bisa memberikan ini pada kalian,” kata kakak tupai. Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi makan kacang itu. “Enak sekali!” seru kedua peri itu. “Jangan khawatir kakak tupai, kami tidak marah karena 3 adikmu memakan habis makanan piknik kami, justru senang karena itu berarti masakan kami enak!” kata Peri Novi. Peri Dinda mengangguk setuju. Sejak itu keluarga tupai selalu diundang Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi jika mereka pergi piknik! (Brother Squirrel is very embarrassed and regretful. As a token of regret, he brought his own peanuts for Dinda and Novi. Dinda and Novi eat the peanuts. “So delicious!” they say. “Don’t worry Brother Squirrel, we’re not mad because your siblings eat our food, we’re happy because it means our food is delicious!” says Novi. Dinda nods along. Ever since then, the squirrel family is always invited whenever Dinda and Novi go on a picnic!)
