<p>CHAPTER 1 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHUCK! It was early in the morning on Wednesday 12th. Gromit the dog sat at the table in the kitchen of the little house at 62 West Wallaby Street and made breakfast . Suddenly he remembered something. He got up from the table and went to look the calendar near the door. Wednesday 12th was his birthay. There it was on the calendar in blue pen 'Gromit 's Birthday'. Gromit look a pen and put a big blue X through the number 12. 'It 's my birthday today and my friend Wallance is sleeping.' he thought, and he felt sad. Wallance wasn't a dog. He was a man, and gromit lived him with him at 62 West Wallaby Street. Gromit looked at his watch. It was nine o'clock. Just then he heard a noise ot front door. There! That's the postman!' he thought. 'Perhaps Im going to get some birthday cards this morning. Let's go and see!' It was early in the morning on Wednesday 12th. Gromit the dog sat at the table in the kitchen of the little house at 62 West Wallaby Street and made breakfast . Suddenly he remembered something. He got up from the table and went to look the calendar near the door. Wednesday 12th was his birthay. There it was on the calendar in blue pen 'Gromit 's Birthday'. Gromit look a pen and put a big blue X through the number 12. There were six letters by the front door when Gromit arrived there, and he looked at all of them carefully. Most of them were letters for Wallace. Letters in brown envelopes asking for money. But there was one envelope - a green one - for Gromit. With all six letters in his mouth, Gromit ran back to the kitchen. Suddenly a toy train shot out in front of him. He stopped for a minute. The train went past and then he ran on, back to the breakfast table. There were lots of different machines in Wallace and Gromit's house in West Wallay Street. Back in the kitchen, Gromit sat down at the table and opened the green envelope. It was a birthday card with a picture of a smiling dog on the front, and when he opened it, it played Happy Birthday to you! Gromit put the card on the table and looked at it sadly. Only one birthday card on his birthday! Just then a red light over his head began to go on and off. Upstairs Wallance was in bed. There was a red button next to his bed. It said Breakfast on it. Wallace hit it again and again. Breakfast said the red light in the kitchen over Gromit's head. Down the kitchen Gromit moved a lever behind his . At once, up in Wallance's room, the head of the bed moved up. At the same time a door opened in the floor at the foot of the bed. The table in the kitchen was right under this door. Suddenly Wallace shot out of bed, Crying 'Gromit!' He shot down through the door in the floor, and was soon downstairs, sitting in his chair at the kitchen table 'Well Gromit, my Getting Up in the Morning Machine worked well,' said Wallace, and began to eat his breakfast. 'But perhaps I can make it work better. I hit the chair very fast that time. Cracking breakfast, Gromit!' he went on. Gromit read his newspaper and said nothing. 'Any letters today?' asked Wallace. Gromit gave him his letters.</p> <p>Wallace opened the first brown envelope and took out a very long letter asking him for lots of money. 'Oh dear!' said Wallace, looking at the long letter carefully. He looked at tall the brown envelopes in his hand. 'We must be more careful with money, Gromit!' Gromit put his birthday card on the table. It played Happy Birthday slowly and sadly, but Wallace wasn't interested in birthday cards just then. Wallace went to look in his money box. There was only thirty pence in it. 'Look at that!' he said. ' And those presents weren't cheap.' He put his hand over his mouth and looked at Gromit. Oh no! He didn't want Gromit to know about his presents just then. Gromit looked at Wallace, and his ears went up excitedly.'Perhaps I'm going to get something more for my birthday.' he thought. 'Well, Gromit. What's on the 9.05 train?' said Wallace. 'Oh look! ere it comes now!' Wallace's little toy train came though the kitchen door and shot past the table. Quickly Wallace took a little present off it. 'What's this?' he said and he put the present on the table in front of Gromit. 'Happy birthday, chuck!' Gromit quickly opened his birthday present. It was a red dog collar and lead. 'You wanted a collar!' said Wallace, laughing. 'Here, let's put it on you.' Wallace helped Gromit to put on his collar. 'Now people can see you come from a good home.' he said, 'But that isn't all. Come and look in here.' Gromit went into the front room. Something stood there in the dark. A new machine perhaps? It began to make a noise and it came out from behind the door. It was a big , walking, present! It walked nearer and nearer to Gromit on its two big legs. Gromit felt very afraid. Suddenly the thing stopped and Gromit saw a small card on the front of it : To Gromit , love Wallace said the card. Because Gromit was afraid, in the end Wallace opened this second present. But what was it? Green and black trausers!? Yes. But they were trousers with blue buttons and red levers. 'They 're Techno-trousers!' Wallace</p> <p>Era temprano en la maana del mircoles 12.
