"Well,天地🐣 I was always adventurous by nature. And,爷爷🚞 plucking up my courage,天地🈲 I scrambled up the vat,铃声🚀 on to the edge of it. It was awful dark and I could just see the dye,铃声🐸 glimmering murky and dim,天地✏ far down inside.
"So off I went across the moonlit snow and the blinking owls on the roof of the dyeing shed never spotted me. Against the whiteness I was nearly invisible. I felt quite proud. At last my white fur was coming in handy.
"He began his great inauguration speech"
"The gulls dashed themselves into the wheelman's face"
As they went forward the jungle around them seemed to grow thicker and thicker all the time. But there was always this clear alley-way along the river bed. And though the stream's course did much winding and twisting,爷爷💐 the going was good.
"When Noah's family first came out of the Ark,爷爷🚦" said the turtle,天地👬 "they slept in little beds which they strung up between the stumps of the drowned trees."
One day the Doctor was opening the mail addressed to him,天地🐀 when he came upon a package about the size and shape of a large egg. He undid the outer wrapper,铃声🏠 which was made of seaweed. Inside he found a letter and a pair of oyster shells tied together like a box.The new notice board was marked at the top Weather Reports,天地📺 and would read something like this:
But no one had seen the letter arrive; no one could tell what day or hour it had come; no one could guess how it got into the pile of the Doctor's mails; no one knew anything about it. It was one of those little post office mysteries that are always cropping up even in the best-run mail systems.

"'You're a stupid old duffer!' I said. And I left the dye shed in great anger and never went back to it again.
"Try in your waistcoat pockets,爷爷🚣" said Too-Too. "They were always the most interesting. You haven't turned them out since you left Puddleby. There must be lots in them."
This they were glad to do. And the Doctor made the tea himself and it was very excellent. Over the tea Zuzana and her husband (whose name was Begwe) were conversing about the Kingdom of Fantippo.
"'All we eat is bananas'"
"Yes,mp3💦" the snake agreed. "They're going to Junganyika. It is the feeding ground of great flocks of wild geese."
"The gull took a fresh piece of toast"
"'Look at the tame white mouse! Tee-hee-hee! A plaything for children! Good little mousey! Come and have 'ims facey washed!' The stupid little idiots!
"Well,爷爷🚋 I'm glad we were in time,mp3🍒" said the bird.
