Excerpt from the tale:
Naughty Monkey loved to swing on doors. He liked the kitchen door best.
A Mono Travieso le encantaba columpiarse en las puertas. La que más le gustaba era la puerta de la cocina.
“Monkey! Stop swinging on that door,” said Mum. “You will break it!”
The door stopped swinging.
—¡Mono!, deja de columpiarte en esa puerta, —dijo Mamá— ¡La vas a romper!
La puerta dejó de girar.
“Ah!” Monkey said. “What happened?”
—¡Oh! —dijo Mono—. ¿Qué ha pasado?
