"Alright, we can go for half and hour," said Mum. When they got to the park, Katie and Jaia ran towards the swings and slides. "Come on!" shouted Katie, "Let's see how high we can go on the swings!" "You can't come in here, Jess!" shouted Katie and Jaia. Mum took Jessie over to the bench and tiedhim to it. She sat down and started to read the paper. "Did you have a nice time?" Mum asked. "Yes, it was brilliant! I went the highest!" said Katie. "No, I went the highest," said Jaia. "Come on, we need to take you home," said Mum. That night, Jessie couldn't sleep. He was thinking about the park. Quietly, he got of his basket and walked downstairs. He squeezed through the cat flap -- he was outside! He ran towards the park. Soon Jessie was at the park. He walked towards the swings. The gate was open. He went through and looked around...the playground was full of dogs! Jessie climbed up the ladder, went down the slide, whizzed round on the roundabout, went up and down on the see-saw, bounced on the springy, and went up and down on the swing. "Wooooof!" barked Jessie. He went as high as he could on the swing. Soon it was time to go. Jessie got off the swing, went through the gate and walked back home. He squeezed through the cat-flap, walked upstairs and got into his basket. He looked at Katie. "I went the highest," thought Jessie. And went to sleep. We hope you enjoyed watching No dogs! and we will see you soon on LearnEnglish Kids!

To download the "Johnny Grammar's Word Challenge" app for free, visit our LearnEnglish website: http://bit.ly/1tVk59X Comparison of adjectives and adverbs 1. Comparatives and superlatives We form comparatives and superlatives by adding -er and -est to one-syllable adjectives. When the adjective is vowel consonant (b i g), add an extra consonant (big+ger): When Trevor bought a big car Brian went out and bought a bigger one. Brian's car was the biggest. We use 'more' and 'most' for adjectives with 2 or more syllables: Trevor decided to buy an expensive computer. So Brian had to go out and buy a more expensive computer. A few adjectives have irregular comparatives and superlatives: Mike had the best house in Charm Street. 1-syllable adverbs use -er and -est to form comparatives and superlatives: Brian and Trevor worked in the same office and Brian worked much harder than Trevor. 'Well' and 'badly' have irregular comparatives and superlatives: They both got on well with the boss, although Brian got on better... All other adverbs use 'more' and 'most': The boss also preferred Brian because he worked more efficiently. 2. 'As... as ...' You can also make comparisons using 'as + adjective / adverb + as...: Unfortunately, although Brian was as clever as Trevor, he was not as lucky as Trevor and as a result, he was not so happy as Trevor. On the other hand, Brian earned twice as much as Trevor.
