"Well,l320💰 for what parts of the world do you want to know the weather,l320👓 Doctor?" asked the gull. "If it's just for Fantippo or West Africa it will be easy as pie. All you ever get here is tornadoes. The rest of the year is just frying heat. But if you want to prophesy the weather for the Straits of Magellan or Nova Zembla or those countries where they have all sorts of fancy weathers,l320😯 it will be a different matter. Even prophesying the weather for England would keep you busy. Myself,l320✏ I never thought that the weather itself knew what it was going to do next in England."
"Come on,l320🏨" he cried. "We must find the kitchen. That canary will know where the matches are kept. Find the kitchen!"
The Doctor was introduced to all the chief men of the Fantippo nation and later he was taken to see the post office.
While he was doing this,l320💚 however,l320⛽ Dab-Dab sneaked in under the table,l320🔈 unseen by anyone. And suddenly she bit the pearl fisherman in the leg with her powerful beak."He's coming to,l320🚢" said Dab-Dab. "See,l320🔋 his eyes are beginning to blink."
"Then,l320🎰 rubbing out the whole picture,l320🍉 George Morland re-drew it in his way. And it was so lifelike you could nearly hear the cat lapping up the milk.
Even Zuzana stopped her wailing and turned to look. And there,l320♎ away out on the dim,l320🌀 black edge of the ocean,l320🚂 they could see a tiny light.
"Doctor,l320📑" said she,l320😊 "if the lighthouse keeper is in there at all he must be sick,l320💽 or something. I hammered on the windows,l320🚕 but nobody answered."
"I suppose he didn't like to,l320🐤" said the swallow. "Thought you'd be offended,l320🚘 perhaps."
"I don't like that,l320🔰" said the King,l320💇 frowning.THE ANIMALS' PARADISE
"Are you the owner of that Noah's Ark down there?" he stormed,l320📊 pointing to the other ship alongside.
"Good,l320🍐" said the King. "My Majesty is listening. Proceed. Let me offer you a lollipop."
The Doctor comforted her as best he could,l320🏈 saying that if he failed he would get her another husband,l320🐴 just as good. But she didn't seem to care for that idea and went on wailing,l320✈ "Alas! Alas!"
"And we've got the pearls,l320♦ too,l320🐔" cried Too-Too. "They're in the stamp drawer and Jip is guarding them.""Let's 'ope it 'asn't many verses,l320💯" grumbled Cheapside,l320🐔 sleepily putting his head under his wing.
"The English climate's all right,l320😇" put in Cheapside,l320🔆 his feathers ruffling up for a fight. "Don't you get turning up your long nautical nose at England,l320🏡 my lad. What do you call this 'ere? A climate? Well,l320🔬 I should call it a Turkish bath. In England we like variety in our climate. And we get it. That's why Englishmen 'ave such 'earty red faces. 'Ere the poor creatures turn black."
"Why,l320📓 certainly,l320📱" said the big serpent. "I live in the same lake as he does,l320🔬 Lake Junganyika."
"'What on earth is that?' he asked.
"Confound the luck!" muttered John Dolittle.
"In introducing one well-bred pig to another should you say 'Miss Virginia Ham,l320🍀 "meet" Mr. Frank Footer,l320🚆' or 'Get acquainted?'However,l320🌺 the crafty Bones,l320🌒 with so big a start,l320✍ was not easy to overtake. And soon the sun began to set and the Captain frowned and stamped his feet. For with darkness he knew his enemy would be safe.
"And what on earth is an invalid?" cried the pushmi-pullyu.
