The Grassman has never gone to school. In his world wasn't that necessary - nature and his friends were most important for him. But when he met his girlfriend, he saw that she loved to look in some paper with strokes in. She told him about the wonderful world, she met in the world of books. "If you want, I will show you how to read," she said.
Of course he would like it. He thinks, it's very difficult, but he will learn it, he will share reading with his girlfriend. Now he wonders, how the strokes in "GRASS" can mean his hair. "Strange," he said.
