This morning when Lola woke up, 
she felt something special on the tip of her tongue.
 
 
 
蘿拉今天早上起床就感覺到有句話一直在她嘴邊打轉!
 
 
 
I know the words are there, she said to herself.
I can feel them puffing out my cheeks.
 
 
 
我知道那句話就在那兒,她喃喃自語,那句話使我的雙頰鼓脹起來!
 
 
 
Lola wanted to say her special words to Daddy.
But it was too late. He was already leaving for work.
 
 
 
蘿拉想對爹地說那一句特別的話,可是太遲了,因為他已經出門上班去了!
 
 
 
Lola wanted to say her special words to Mommy.
But Mommy was very busy.
 
 
 
 
 
蘿拉想對媽咪說那一句特別的話,可是她太忙了!
 
 
 
"Mommy, I want to tell you......," Lola whispered.
"Can it wait, angel?" said Mommy. "You'll be late for school."
 
 
 
 
 
媽咪,我想跟你說......,”蘿拉輕聲細語,
”小天使,回來再說好嗎,你上學就要遲到了!”
 
 
 
On the school bus, 
it was much too noisy for Lola to say her special words.
 
 
 
蘿拉在校車上根本沒辦法說出那一句特別的話,因為實在太吵了!
 
 
 
At the playground, Lola walked up to her teacher.
But her teacher was already holding another child.
 
 
 
在運動場上,蘿拉走向老師,但是老師手上早已抱著另一名小朋友了!
 
 
 
In class, Lola looked over at the annoying boy next to her.
I won't tell him m special words, she thought.
 
 
 
上課時,蘿拉看了看坐在隔壁那一名讓人心煩的男生, 
我才不要對他說那一句特別的話,她心裡嘀咕! 
 
 
 
At lunchtime, in the cafeteria, 
everybody was chewing and chomping.Loa kept quiet. 
Special words should not be chomped, she decided.
 
 
 
午餐時間,每個人都坐在餐廳裡使勁磨碎嘴裡的食物,
蘿拉仍舊一聲不響,她可不想那一句話就這麼磨碎掉了! 
 
 
 
 
 
During recess, all the children played running games.
Lola didn't say a single word, especially not a special word.
 
 
 
下課休息時間,所有的小朋友都在玩跑步的遊戲,
蘿拉還是不發一語,就連一個特別的字都說不出來!
 
 
 
After school, Lola saw Frankie, the Skateboard King. Lola smiled.
She decided to say her special words to him. 
 
 
 
 
 
下課放學回家,蘿拉看見滑板王法藍奇,她暗自竊笑,
因為她決定對他說出那一句特別的話!
 
 
 
 
 
But Zoom! The rat sped past Lola without stopping,
without waiting to hear her special words.
 
 
 
但是,倏的一聲,法藍奇就這麼和蘿拉擦身而過,
他完全沒停下來聽她說出那一句特別的話!
 
 
 
Back on the bus, it was too noisy again. Lola felt sulky now. 
 
 
 
 
 
回到校車上,還是吵的不可開交,蘿拉開始悶悶不樂了!
 
 
 
At home, in the living room, Lola sulked some more. 
 
 
 
 
 
回到家,坐在客廳裡,蘿拉更顯得悶悶不樂了!
 
 
 
Even when her parents got home, Lola kept sulking. 
 
 
 
就算爸爸媽媽都回到家了,蘿拉還是開心不起來! 
 
 
 
 
 
She didn't feel like saying her special words anymore.
 
 
 
她壓根兒不想說那一句特別的話了!
 
 
 
 
 
During supper, the meat felt hard, the salad felt mushy,
and the lemonade was sour.
 
 
 
 
 
晚餐時間,肉嚐起來硬生生的,沙拉吃起來糊糊爛爛的,
連檸檬汁喝起來都酸溜溜的!
 
 
 
"What's wrong, Lola?" Mommy asked. 
"Won't you tell us?" Daddy asked.
 
 
 
 
 
蘿拉,怎麼啦?”媽咪問,”要不要說來聽聽看啊?”爹地問!
 
 
 
Lola thought long and hard. I won't say anything, she thought.
Nobody cares. I won't say my special words. 
 
 
 
 
 
蘿拉冥思苦想,我一句話都不說,反正又沒人在乎,她嘀咕著,
要我說出那一句特別的話,想都別想!
 
 
 
But her cheeks started puffing up, 
bigger and bigger and bigger still. Suddenly Lola shouted:
 
 
 
 
 
但是她的雙頰開始鼓脹起來了,愈來愈大,愈來愈大, 愈來愈大,
忽然,蘿拉大叫一聲..................
