"He isn't old enough to tell a good story,因为🌆" said Dab-Dab. "He hasn't had any experience."
"I had admired their spirit greatly in punishing a boy so much bigger than they were. And when they wandered off by themselves,因为💇 again out of curiosity,因为🍑 I followed them. Well,普法🙀 they traveled quite a distance for such small folk. And presently the sun set and darkness began to creep over the woods.
"Keep right on,普法🌜 Doctor,因为🍲" said the gull. "I'm going off to get some friends of mine."
With shrieks and howls the fat women soldiers dropped the things they had been stealing and ran helter-skelter for home. And that was one time the famous Amazons of Dahomey didn't have it all their own way.
THE WHITE MOUSE'S STORY"Who sent you those?" asked Jip.
One day when King Koko's pet white peacock came to the Doctor and complained that the Cockney sparrow had made faces at him over the palace wall the Doctor became quite angry and read the City Manager a long lecture.
The great water snake began by taking the Doctor's party down the coast south for some forty or fifty miles. There they left the sea,栏目🐉 entered the mouth of a river and started to journey inland. The canoe (with the snake swimming alongside it) was quite the best thing for this kind of travel so long as the river had water in it. But presently,因为🎥 as they went up it,栏目🐫 the stream grew narrower and narrower. Till at last,因为🈷 like many rivers in tropical countries,因为🏰 it was nothing more than the dry bed of a brook,普法🚽 or a chain of small pools with long sand bars between.
"Now it happened one day,因为🔔 when I was wandering around in the country outside the town,因为🌉 that I met a most conceited spaniel. He passed me with his nose turned up in the air in such a cheeky manner that I said to him,因为🚬 I said: 'What makes you so stuck up?'
"That's not a bad idea,普法❕ Jip,因为🍈" said the Doctor. "We'll go down the shore a way till we're opposite the island,普法🐥 then we won't have so far to swim."
"Look here,普法🍁 Speedy,因为💙" said John Dolittle,普法📔 "we must try and trace this. Let us leave no stone unturned to find where this valuable document came from. First,因为🍝 we will question everyone in the post office to find out who it was delivered it.""'Fire!' said Speedy"
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.
