Hari ini, Peri Novi pergi ke Desa Zaitun untuk membeli buah zaitun yang lezat. “Selamat pagi, Peri Novi, kau mau membeli buah zaitunku?” tanya Papo si pemilik kebun zaitun. “Iya,” jawab Peri Novi. “Ayo ikut aku,” ajak Papo. (Today, Novi the Fairy, goes to Olive Village to buy delicious olives. “Good morning, Novi, would you like to buy my olives?” asks Papo the olive garden owner. “Yes,” answers Novi. “Let’s go,” tells Papo.)

Papo dan Peri Novi berjalan melewati deretan pohon zaitun yang mengucapkan selamat pagi. Peri Novi dan Papo menyapa mereka semua. Menyenangkan sekali melihat pohon-pohon zaitun yang gembira itu. (Papo and Novi walk along the olive trees that greet them good morning. Novi and Papo say hi to them all. It’s so fun seeing those happy olive trees.)

Peri Novi sampai di rumah Papo. Dia memilih dan membayar buah-buah zaitun lezat untuk dimakan bersama kakaknya, Peri Dinda. “Ayo, berkenalan dengan Zaza, pohon zaitun yang buahnya kau beli!” kata Papo. “Senang sekali!” seru Peri Novi antusias. ( Arrives at Papo’s house. She picks and pays the delicious olives for her to eat with her sister, Dinda the Fairy. “Let’s say hi to Zaza, the olive tree whose fruits you bought!” says Papo. “Wow, so happy!” says Novi enthusiastically.)

Tapi, ketika mereka sampai di tempat Zaza, Peri Novi dan Papo terkejut. Pohon zaitun itu menghitam! “Mengapa Zaza jadi begini!?” seru Papo sedih. Peri Novi mengayunkan tongkat ajaibnya, mencoba menolong Zaza. Sayang sekali, dia gagal. “Aku harus minta bantuan kakakku, Peri Dinda,” kata Peri Novi. (But, when they arrive at Zaza’s, Novi and Papo are so surprised. The olive tree is black! “Why did Zaza become like this?” says Papo sadly. Novi swings her magic wand, trying to help Zaza. Too bad she fails. “I have to ask for my sister Dinda’s help,” says Novi.)

Tak lama kemudian, Peri Dinda datang untuk menolong Zaza. Dia mengubah tongkat ajaibnya menjadi seruling. “Ayo, kita coba menolong Zaza bersama-sama Novi, aku akan memainkan seruling dan kau mengayunkan tongkat ajaib,” kata Peri Dinda. (Not long after, Dinda comes to help Zaza. She transforms her magic wand into a flute. “Let’s help Zaza together, Novi. I will play the flute and you will swing the magic wand,” says Dinda.)

Tapi, sebelum Peri Dinda dan Novi melakukan sesuatu,  perlahan tubuh Zaza yang menghitam mulai berubah warna menjadi seperti pohon zaitun lain. “Waah, enak sekali tidurku!” kata Zaza. “Jadi, kau hanya tidur? Kukira hal buruk terjadi padamu!” kata Papo bingung. (But, before Dinda and Novi do it, slowly Zaza’s blackened body turns into a regular olive tree. “Wow, that was a good sleep!” says Zaza. “So you were only sleeping? I thought something bad happened to you!” says Papo confused.)

“Maaf Papo, aku adalah pohon zaitun yang sudah berusia 1.000 tahun dan perlu tidur. Aku takut kau mengira aku malas,” kata Zaza. “Tentu saja tidak, Zaza. Kau sudah membantuku hidup nyaman dengan panen buah zaitun darimu,” kata Papo tersenyum penuh pengertian. Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi tertawa lega. “Syukurlah!” kata mereka. (“Sorry Papo, I am a 1000-year-old olive tree who needs sleep. I was worried you’d think of me as lazy,” says Zaza. “Of course not, Zaza. You have helped me live comfortably with your olives,” says Papo smiling. Dinda and Novi laugh in relief. “Thank goodness!” they say.)
