Suatu pagi, Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi mendengar kegaduhan. “Ada yang terjatuh di depan rumah kita!” seru Peri Dinda. Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi keluar rumah dan menolong si Peri yang terjatuh. Ternyata itu Peri Tutu, tetangga mereka. “Aku dikejar-kejar! Ada yang jahat padaku!” serunya ketakutan. “Lihat!” seru Peri Novi menunjuk ke belakang Peri Tutu. Ada keranjang dan sisa-sisa makanan. Benda-benda itu melayang dan mengejar Peri Tutu. Peri Novi mengayunkan tongkat ajaibnya dan benda-benda itu berhenti di udara. “Terima kasih!” seru Peri Tutu lega. “Lebih baik kau pulang, kita akan menghilangkan benda-benda ini, ” kata Peri Novi dan Peri Dinda pada Peri Tutu.
(One day, Dinda and Novi the Fairies hear a noise. “There’s someone who fell in front of our house!” shouts Dinda. Dinda and Novi go out and help the fallen fairy. It is Tutu the Fairy, their neighbor. “I’m being chased! Someone bad is after me!” she screams scared. “Look!” Novi points to the back of Tutu. There’s a basket and food leftovers. They are flying and chasing Tutu. Novi swings her magic wand and they stop mid-air. “Thank you!” says Tutu relieved. “You better go home, we will get rid of these things,” say Novi and Dinda to Tutu.)

Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi mencoba menghilangkan keranjang dan sisa-sisa makanan yang mengejar Peri Tutu, tapi tidak bisa! “Apa yang terjadi? Mengapa benda-benda ini tak mau hilang? Kalau memang ini sihir jahat, sihir putih kita harusnya bisa menghilangkannya!” ujar Peri Novi bingung. Peri Dinda berpikir sejenak. “Novi, ingatkah kau, ada taman ajaib yang bisa membuat siapa saja jera jika mereka membuang sampah di sana?” tanya Peri Dinda. “Aku ingat!” jawab Peri Novi. “Benda-benda ini sampah piknik!” kata Peri Dinda.
(Dinda and Novi try to make the basket and food leftovers disappear, but they can’t! “What is happening? Why can’t these things go away? If it’s black magic, our white magic should be able to defeat them!” says Novi confused. “Novi, do you remember, there’s a magic garden that can make everyone learn a lesson if they carelessly throw trash there?” asks Dinda. “I remember!” answers Novi. “These are picnic trash!” says Dinda.)

Atas permintaan Peri Dinda, Peri Novi memanggil Peri Tutu. “Apa kau pernah piknik di sebuah taman?” tanya Peri Dinda. “Iya, kira-kira seminggu yang lalu. Oh, aku lupa membuang sampah makanan yang kubawa!” kata Peri Tutu. “Taman itu memintamu membuang sampah dan menjaga kebersihan,” kata Peri Novi sambil tersenyum. Peri Tutu tertawa lega, kemudian membuang sampah piknik yang mengejarnya. “Aku janji tak akan lalai lagi!” katanya.
(At Dinda’s request, Novi calls Tutu. “Have you ever gone on a picnic at a garden?” asks Dinda. “Yes, about a week ago. Oh, I forgot to throw away my trash!” says Tutu. “The garden is asking you to throw your trash away and keep the grounds clean,” says Novi smiling. Tutu laughs in relief, and throws away her picnic trash that was chasing her. “I promise I won’t do it again!” she says.)
