9 Officer Buckle and GLORIA

10 Officer Buckle knew more safety tips than anyone else in Napville.
Every time he thought of a new one, he thumbtacked it to his bulletin board. # # #

11 Never stand on a SWIVEL CHAIR.
Safety Tip #77 Never stand on a SWIVEL CHAIR.

12 Officer Buckle shared his safety tips
with the students at Napville School. Nobody ever listened. Sometimes, there was snoring. Afterward, it was business as usual.


14 Mrs. Topple, the principal, took down the welcome banner.
“NEVER stand on a SWIVEL CHAIR,” said Officer Buckle, but Mrs. Topple didn’t hear him.

15 Then one day, Napville’s police department bought a police dog
named Gloria. When it was time for Officer Buckle to give a safety speech at the school, Gloria went along.


17 “Children, this is Gloria,” announced
Officer Buckle “Gloria obeys my commands.” “Gloria, SIT!” And Gloria sat.

18 “Keep your Shoelaces tied!” The children sat up and stared.
Officer Buckle gave Safety Tip Number One: “Keep your Shoelaces tied!” The children sat up and stared.

19 Officer Buckle checked to see if Gloria was sitting at attention.
She was.

20 “Safety Tip Number Two,” said Officer Buckle.
“ALWAYS wipe up spills BEFORE someone SLIPS AND FALLS!”

21 The children’s eyes popped. Officer Buckle checked on Gloria again.
“Good dog,” he said.

22 Officer Buckle thought of a safety tip he had discovered that morning.
“NEVER leave a THUMBTACK where you might SIT on it!” The audience roared.

23 Officer Buckle grinned. He said the rest of the tips with plenty of
expression. The children clapped their hands and cheered. Some of them laughed until they cried. Officer Buckle was surprised. He never noticed how funny safety tips could be.

24 After this safety speech, there wasn’t
u After this safety speech, there wasn’t a single accident.

25 The next day, an enormous envelope
arrived at the police station. It was stuffed with Thank-you letters from students at Napville School. Every letter had a drawing of Gloria on it. Officer Buckle thought the drawings showed a lot of imagination.

26 Thank you Officer Buckle
and Gloria.

27 His favorite letter was written on a star-shaped piece of paper.
It said: You and Gloria make a good team. Your friend, Claire P.S. I always wear a crash helmet ( Safety Tip #7 )

28 Officer Buckle was thumbtacking Clair’s letter to his bulletin board
when the phones started ringing. Grade schools, high schools, and day-care centers were calling about the safety speech.

29 “Officer Buckle,” they said, “our students want to hear your
safety tips! And please, bring along that police dog.”

30 Officer Buckle told his tips to 313 schools.
Everywhere he and Gloria went, children sat up and listened. After every speech, Officer Buckle took Gloria out for ice cream. Officer Buckle loved having a buddy.

31 Then one day, a television news team videotaped Officer Buckle in the
state college auditorium. When he finished Safety Tip Number Ninety-nine, DO NOT GO SWIMMING DURING ELECTRICAL STORMS!, The students jumped to their feet and applauded.

32 “Bravo! Bravo!” they cheered.
Officer Buckle bowed again and again. BRAVO! BRAVO!

33 That night, Officer Buckle watched himself on the 10 o’clock news.

34 The next day, the principal of Napville
School telephoned the police station. “Good morning, Officer Buckle! It’s time for our safety speech!” “I’m not giving any more speeches! Nobody looks at me, anyway!” “Oh,” said Mrs. Toppel. “Well! How about Gloria? Could she come?”

35 Someone else from the police station gave Gloria a ride to the school.
Gloria sat onstage looking lonely. Then she fell asleep. So did the audience. After Gloria left, Napville School had its biggest accident ever…

36 It started with a puddle of banana pudding… SPLAT! SPLATTER! SPLOOSH!
Everyone slid smack into Mrs. Toppel, who screamed and let go of her hammer.

37 Mrs. Toppel let go of her hammer!

38 The next morning, a pile of letters arrived at the police station.
Every letter had a drawing of the accident. Officer buckle was shocked. At the bottom of the pile was a note written on a paper star. Officer Buckle smiled.

39 The note said: Gloria missed you yesterday. Your friend, Claire
P.S. Don’t worry, I was wearing my helmet. Safety Tip #7

gave Gloria a nice pat on the back. Then, Officer Buckle thought of his best safety tip yet…
