Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes.he had friends who told stories and friends who told jokes. But one day a friend told Franklin about the.. things that would happen tomorrow.
that looks good…
Do you know what the best part of having a best friend is, Franklin?
Having someone you can share things with.
Like chocolate covered raisins?
Gee , thanks, Franklin.
you’re welcome, Bear.
Hey I want a turn!
Give me more room guys.
Where’d you get it?
That’s neat, can I try?
Hey, move over, I want a turn.
Hey, what’s going on over there?
Let’s go see!
Go ahead rabbit, spin the top of Destiny!
Destiny? What’s that?
It means your future.
When it stops spinning, the great Madame B, will tell the secrets of rabbit’s future.
That look like a good one, Babbit.
Wow, good spin.
What does it mean, Beaver?
The lucky sign of the trophy,this is a very lucky symbol.
It means you are going to win something.
Way to go rabbit!
Are you ever lucky!
I don’t get it.
It’s just a silly toy.
How can it tell the future?
I’m going to find a lost treasure!
I’m going to be famous!
What do you think you’re going to win, rabbit?
Who wants to race?
I’m not racing.
I’ll race you, rabbit!
First one to the slide wins.
On your mark…
You can do it!
Way to go!
You did it!
Did you see that?
The top knows all!
I said he would win something and he did.
Yeah, but rabbit always runs fastest!
Let me try!
If you don’t believe in the powers of the top, then you can’t have a turn.
I want to try it.
Let me try!
Can I do it again?
Everyone wanting to spin Madame’s B’s Top of Destiny, line up right here!
I like it when it’s Friday.
Yeah me too.
Let’s go on a bike ride tomorrow.
That’s a good idea!
Sit over here snail.
Move my backpack please.
Hey Snail,did you see the school newsletter?
Look! You’re the classroom helper of the month!
Hey, that’s me!
I said you were going to be famous.
Snail! That’s right!
The top of Destiny really works!
Gee, I guess it does!
But …the school newsletter always has a picture of somebody from the class.
Hey, I found my pen!
Where was it?
It was stuck down here beside the seat.
This is the pen Mr. Owl gave me.
I thought it was lost forever.
Didn’t I say you’d find a lost treasure?
The top of Destiny was right again!
What do you think now?
I think she found a lost treasure.
Don’t you , Franklin?
I think I’m famous…even if it’s just at our school.
Maybe it’s not just a silly toy.
So , do you want to give it a try then?
You should , Franklin.
Yeah, it’s fun.
Go for it, Franklin.
Maybe you’ll get something really neat.
Come on Franklin.
Cross your fingers.
I hope it’s something good.
A sad cloud?
What does that mean?
This is not a lucky sign, Franklin.
It means you’re going to have a bad day tomorrow.
Why do I have to have a bad day?!
Why can’t I be famous, or win something….or find a lost treasure?!
Sorry Franklin, I’m just telling you what the top says.
That’s no fun.
Don’t worry, Franklin.
Maybe the top isn’t right this time.
It can’t be right every time.
How do you know?
Well… it said I would get a call from a friend far away.
And that never happened.
Hey Bear, don’t forget to come and play after supper!
I’ll see you tomorrow.
If I’m not in bed with shell rash.
It’s me, Bear.
Aren’t you going to let me in?
Okay, but hurry.
Who did you think was knocking?
I don’t know, but I’m not taking any chances!
I’m supposed to have a bad day, remember?
it doesn’t smell like you’re having a bad day.
Dad made pancakes for breakfast.
Then you’re having a great day.
It’s only morning, Bear.
There are still hours and hours left for bad things to happen.
You worry too much.
Let’s go to the tree fort and have fun.
The tree fort? I can’t go there. What if I fall off the ladder?
Just be careful.
What if you fall off the ladder on top of me?
I’ll be careful.
What if the tree fort gets hit by lightning?!
If I see a thunder cloud, I’ll warn you.
No way . I’m not going anywhere.
The safest place to be on a bad day is right here.
We’d better stay away from the garden today Sam.
I might get stung by a bee or step on a thistle.
There’s something that could turn this into a bad day.
I could have stubbed my toe on this rock.
I’d better move it somewhere else.
This thing is ….really.. heavy.
What are you doing?
Need a hand Franklin?
Did you go to the tree fort?
Yeah, we did.
And guess what happened?
It tipped over?
Someone fell out?
No, nothing bad happened.
The robin eggs hatched!
All of them?
Yep, four babies!
We watched them come out of their shells!
It was really neat.
You should have seen it.
I know I should have seen it.
I’m the one who found the nest.
Uh…want to go with us on a bike ride, Franklin?
A bike ride?
What if my wheels fall off?
The safest place to be on a bad day is right here.
The most boring place to be on a bad day is right here..thirty-eight to thirty-nine thirty-nine to forty.
I knew that twenty-five dots ago.
Rocky road Chunky chocolate Cookie crumble and Berry-berry banana.
Isn’t this the best day of all time?
Did you go on a bike ride?
Yeah, but we didn’t get very far.
Did someone fall off their bike? Did one of you get your fur caught in the chain?
You’re not even close.
Nothing bad happened.
Mr. Skunk was putting in a new freezer at the ice cream shop.
He was giving away ice cream from the old freezer before it melted!
I’ve never seen his shop so busy.
You should have been there, Franklin.
I know I should have been there.
I’m his best customer!
You know what would make you feel better, Franklin?
A swim at the pond.
Yeah, come with us for a swim.
It’ll be fun.
I don’t know you guys. What if a crayfish pinches my toe?
But what if it doesn’t?
What if you have a really good time?
But I’m supposed to have a bad day today. The Top of Destiny said so.
Well if you ask me, you’ve already had your bad day.
You didn’t see the baby robins hatching.
And you didn’t have any fun on our bike ride.
And you didn’t have any ice cream.
Yeah you are right.
I’m the King of the Castle!
Hey, look who’s here!
Well Franklin, how was your day?
Then why are you so happy?
Because I can start having fun again. I wasted too much time today worrying about things that will probably never happen.
If the top of Destiny says it will happen, then it will happen. I’m looking forward to a big surprise today.
The Top of Destiny said so!
Hey, the Top of Destiny is right again!
Well, maybe it’s not right every time.
