Peri Novi berwajah serius. Biasanya dia selalu ceria. Peri Dinda, kakak Peri Novi tahu kenapa adiknya seperti itu. Rupanya, ujian sihir Peri Novi sudah dekat. “Sihir apa yang jadi ujian, Novi?” tanya Peri Dinda. “Sihir penghenti hujan, Kakak,” jawab Peri Novi. “Sihir itu sulit, tidak seperti sihir pemanggil hujan yang mudah. Tapi aku yakin kau bisa!” ujar Peri Dinda memberi semangat Peri Novi. “Terima kasih, Kakak!” ucap Peri Novi memeluk kakaknya.
(Novi the Fairy has her serious face on. She usually looks cheerful. Dinda the Fairy, Novi’s elder sister knows why Novi is acting that way. Novi’s magic test is coming soon. “What kind of magic will be tested, Novi?” asks Dinda. “Magic spells to stop the rain, Sis,” answers Novi. “That magic is hard, unlike the magic to call the rain that is easier. But I’m sure you can do it!” says Dinda supporting Novi. “Thanks, Sis!” says Novi hugging her sister.)

Peri Dinda melihat Peri Novi mengubah awan hitam menjadi putih dengan tongkat ajaibnya. “Kau berhasil, Novi!” ucap Peri Dinda memeluk Peri Novi. “Aku pasti mendapat nilai bagus!” kata Peri Novi percaya diri. Tapi sayang sekali, ketika ujian sihir tiba, Peri Novi tiba-tiba sakit. Akibatnya, dia tidak bisa konsentrasi dan nilainya jelek. “Aku gagal” tangis Peri Novi. Peri Dinda menghiburnya. Tapi Peri Novi tetap sedih.
(Dinda sees Novi change a black cloud into white with her magic wand. “You did it, Novi!” praises Dinda while hugging her. “I must get good grades!” says Novi confidently. Unfortunately, when the magic test comes, Novi is suddenly sick. She can’t concentrate and fails the test. “I failed,” cries Novi. Dinda comforts her, but Novi is still sad.)

Suatu hari, Peri Dinda mengajak Peri Novi berjalan-jalan agar kesedihannya hilang. “Novi, lihat itu!” kata Peri Dinda menunjuk kawanan kelinci yang sedang piknik di padang rumput. Tiba-tiba awan hitam datang, dan kelinci-kelinci itu menangis sedih. “Pergi awan hitam!” seru Peri Novi mengayunkan tongkat ajaibnya dan seketika awan hitam menjadi putih. Kelinci-kelinci bergembira dan berterima kasih pada Peri Novi. Peri Dinda tersenyum bangga. “Novi, kau gagal dalam ujian sihirmu, tapi kau bisa menolong kelinci-kelinci ini!” kata Peri Dinda. “Aku mengerti Kakak, nilai tidak penting. Dengan sihir yang kupelajari, aku bisa menolong yang memerlukan, itulah yang terpenting!” kata Peri Novi kembali ceria.
(One day, Dinda takes Novi out to cheer her up. “Novi, look at that!” says Dinda pointing to a herd of rabbits having a picnic on the grass. Suddenly a black cloud comes, and the rabbits are crying sadly. “Go away, black cloud!” shouts Novi while swinging her magic wand, and all of a sudden the black cloud becomes white. The rabbits are now happy and thank Novi. Dinda smiles proudly. “Novi, you failed your magic test, but you can help these rabbits!” says Dinda. “I understand, Sister, grades don’t matter. With the magic lessons that I have learned, I can help those who are in need. That’s what matters!” says Novi cheerfully.)
