Timothy Hedgehog Finds a Friend.
 One day when the sun was shining, all the animals were at play. Timothy Hedgehog went to join them, but they nasty things shooed him away. 'Clear off!' They shouted rudely, 'your prickly and play too rough: Why can't you be like the rest of us, all cuddly and covered in fluff?' Poor Timothy went away tearfully, shuffling and snuffling along. He sat on a stone and had a good cry, then from somewhere a voice said, 'What's wrong?' 'Who said that?' asked Timothy, as he could not see anyone around. 'Your sitting on my house.' said the voice, that seemed to come from the ground. Timothy jumped up quickly, from what he thought was a stone, thinking to himself, "well it looks more like a stone than a home." Slowly out of each corner, appeared a very wrinkly leg, then just at slowly at one end, there appeared a thumb shaped wrinkled head. 'Who are you?' asked Tymothy; wiping a tear from his eye. 'I'm Terry Tortoise,' came the answer, 'come now please don't cry. Timothy could not help it; he began to cry again. 'Why on earth do you sob so, are you feeling pain?' Asked Terry, who was getting worried, because Timothy seemed really upset. 'The animals will not play with me,' he told Terry, who said, 'Don't fret.' They will not plat with me either, they say I'm too slow and I'm ugly; They say that I should be like them, fast and fury and cuddly; 'So why don't we play together? That is if you don't run too fast.' 'Well I don't run very fast either, with my little legs I always come last.' Said Timothy who felt more cheerful, having found himself a new friend. His spines would not stick in Terry's shell; in fact they were more likely to bend. Terry is so well mannered and really a very good sport. Though he was not very good looking, Timothy never gave that a thought. When the others saw Terry and Timothy playing and laughing in the sun, they thought they were missing something and came to join in the fun.

 The Scarecrow at Dingle-Doo.

  In field that lies in a Dingle; near the Village of Dingle-Doo. Stands a Scarecrow who scares the crows away with words like "Scram!" and "Boo!" One day he had a problem, with a crow called Jack the Lad, Who had flown down from the City, to drive poor Scarecrow mad. At night when Jack was sleeping, he decided to seek advice, He complained to Oscar; the wise old Owl, "That Jack pinched corn from my field; Twice!" The wise old looked puzzled, and blinked, and sort of frowned, "Who, Who," he asked the scarecrow, then turned his head right round, To where Nutty the Squirrel was sitting, with a nut between his paws. "Tut, tut," said Nutty, "He's back is he, Breaking all our laws." Oscar blinked again. Then said, "Whoo, whoo!" in surprise and disbelief, "I thought he was back in the City, Who, heck, he is a thief." Scarecrow said, "I've booed him and I've shooed him; and I even told him to scram. Still I cannot get rid of him, so I wondered if you have a plan, because if he takes anymore corn our losses will be a lot higher, the farmer will stick bangers in me and put me on the bonfire." "Whoo, whoo, whooo, I know," said Oscar excitedly, "We'll scare him from the field, just you wait and see." It was very early the next morning, when Jack the Lad was out of his nest. Scarecrow saw him coming, and said, "Here he is the pest." Jack circled around the field, screeching at the top of his voice, "I'm Jack the Lad and I'm coming in your field, and you ain't got no choice!" Scarecrow waited in silence, without uttering one boo, or shoo. Jack cheekily strutted towards him. But he only took a step or two, when...BANG, BANG, BANG! went three bangers, really close to where Jack the Lad stood. He dropped a piece of corn from his beak, and flew off to Ravens Wood, All the Crows were panicking; some were hiding behind the trees. Jack said, "Cur, cur, cripes!" and felt poorly and shook at the knees. Scarecrow laughed his head off, then picked it up and put it back on. Then he shouted excitedly, "It worked, It worked, he's gone!" "What a hoot!" said Oscar, "Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hooooooo!" "Tut, tut." said Nutty unimpressed, "Course it worked, I knew it would do." So nowadays, you never hear a scarecrow shout, 'Scram!' or 'Boo!' or 'Shoo!' But you will hear them letting off bangers, like the Scarecrow at Dingle Doo.
