“Kakak, bagaimana kalau kita pergi ke Desa Strawberry?” usul Peri Novi pada suatu hari. “Usul yang bagus!” kata Peri Dinda senang. Desa Strawberry adalah desa unik. Di desa itu, pohon strawberry tumbuh di setiap rumah peri. Semua peri yang tinggal di sana sangat bangga pada pohon strawberry mereka. “Ada peri tetangga kita yang pindah ke Desa Strawberry,” ujar Peri Dinda. “Oh iya, Peri Kiki! Ayo, kita sekalian berkunjung ke rumahnya!” tambah Peri Novi.
(“Sister, what if we go to the Strawberry Village?” asks Novi the Fairy one day. “What a great idea!” says Dinda the Fairy happily. Strawberry Village is a unique village. At that village, strawberry trees grow in every house. Every fairy that lives there is very proud of their strawberry tree. “There’s a neighbor of ours that has moved to Strawberry Village,” says Dinda. “Oh right, Kiki! Let’s visit her!” adds Novi.)

Ketika Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi sampai di Desa Strawberry, desa itu kosong. Rupanya, penduduk Desa Strawberry pergi ke festival makanan Negeri Peri. Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi mendapat penjelasan ini dari Peri Kiki. “Kenapa kau tidak ikut?” tanya Peri Dinda. “Karena pohon strawberry milikku buahnya kecil-kecil. Aku tidak tahu sebabnya,” jawab Peri Kiki sedih. Seekor burung terbang mendekati pohon strawberry Peri Kiki. “Pergi kau! Jangan mengambil buah strawberry-ku!” seru Peri Kiki marah. Si burung yang ketakutan, pergi menjauh.
(When Dinda and Novi arrive at Strawberry Village, the village is empty. The people are all going to the food festival at Fairy Land. Dinda and Novi get this information from Kiki. “Why aren’t you going?” asks Dinda. “Because my strawberries are so small. I don’t know why,” she answers sadly. A bird flies to Kiki’s strawberry trees. “Go away! Don’t take my strawberries!” shouts Kiki angrily. The bird becomes scared and flies away.)

Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi yang iba pada Peri Kiki membantunya mencari jawaban. Di perpustakaan istana Ratu Peri, mereka menemukan jawabannya. Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi kembali ke Desa Strawberry untuk menemui Peri Kiki. “Kiki, kenapa kau tidak mau membagi buah strawberry milikmu?” tanya Peri Novi. “Tentu saja, karena aku takut kekurangan,” jawab Peri Kiki. “Itulah yang menyebabkan buah strawberry di pohonmu tidak bisa berbuah lezat seperti penduduk lain. Aku membaca catatan kuno di perpustakaan Ratu Peri,” kata Peri Dinda. Peri Kiki terkejut mendengar hal ini. “Aku janji tidak akan pelit lagi,” katanya. Setelah itu, strawberry Peri Kiki menjadi lezat, dan dia selalu memberikannya cuma-cuma.
(Dinda and Novi who feel bad for Kiki help her find some answers. At Queen Fairy’s library at the palace they find the answers. Dinda and Novi go back to Strawberry Village to meet Kiki. “Kiki, why don’t you share your strawberries?” asks Novi. “Of course, because I don’t want to run out of strawberries,” Kiki answers. “That’s what makes your strawberries don’t grow as big or as delicious as others. I read this from and old book at Queen Fairy’s library,” says Dinda. Kiki is surprised to hear this. “I promise I won’t be stingy anymore,” she says. After that, Kiki’s strawberries become delicious, and she always gives them away for free.)
