Danny is twelve years old. He lives in a village near Montargis in France. He has got a small family but many pets. He has got a big house
and a big garden so that there is enough place for all the animals. On top of that, everyone in the family likes to collect things. His father,
David, has got a collection of toy cars. He loves his toy cars. Some of them are ancient. His mother, Jennifer, has got a collection of kitchen
utensils. She has got old microwaves, old kettles and many other small things that people usually throw away. His brother, Jonah, has got a
collection of SpongeBob figures. He loves Bob Sponge and he collects every SpongeBob figure that he can find. Danny, himself collects
things too. He has got a collection of pens. He has got fountain pens, rollerball pens, ballpoint pens and many others. He has also got
