Algernon and Marmaduke are strong and brave and good-looking...or so they say. Their sister Fred is just a silly girl...or so they think. But when the family is in trouble, the brothers soon discover that Fred has qualities that they don't expect...
The Weasel in the Sack is a funny play written in extremely simple English.

|Fred:||Hello everyone! I'm home! That's funny, there's no-one here. They must be all asleep. Hello! I can sit here and wait until my mother and my brothers wake up.
[Algernon and Marmaduke creep up on Fred, throw a sack over her, and tie her up]
|Algernon:||What do you think we have in this sack, Marmaduke?|
|Marmaduke:||I think we have a weasel in our sack, Algernon.|
|Algernon:||Yes, a nasty weasel.|
|Marmaduke:||And what do we do with nasty weasels, Algernon?|
|Algernon:||We take them to the lake, and throw them in, and drown them.|
|Marmaduke:||That's right, Algernon.|
|Algernon:||Let's take this nasty weasel now and throw it in the lake.|
