He likes England and decides to stay, learn the local nursery rhymes, and explore the place. Number 9 meets some cats when he goes to Buckingham Palace and one of the cats teaches him a nursery rhyme. The cat tells him to go to the city center if he wants to hear more. Number 9 takes a double-decker bus and he meets 9 kids in the bus. One of the kids recites 'London Bridge is falling down' and tells him to go to Kew Gardens if he wants to hear more nursery rhymes. Number 9 has a lot of fun traveling around England, and by the time he finishes touring the place he is eager to go back home and be with his friends.
