THE WHITE MOUSE'S STORY
"When I had brought the children right up to this house their mother and father made a tremendous fuss,娘家💽 weeping over them,黄睿靓🚻 as though they had been saved from some terrible danger. In my opinion grown-up humans are even more stupid than the young ones. You'd think,黄睿靓📓 from the way that mother and father carried on,娘家Ⓜ that those children had been wrecked on a desert island or something,娘家😯 instead of spending a couple of hours in the pleasant woods.
"It couldn't have,娘家🛅" said the thrush. "I put it into a little hollow in the bark of the bough. It just couldn't have slipped or rolled. Somebody must have taken it."
"He can't read,娘家⚾" said the Doctor gloomily.
"The English climate's all right,黄睿靓📅" put in Cheapside,黄睿靓✈ his feathers ruffling up for a fight. "Don't you get turning up your long nautical nose at England,娘家🔵 my lad. What do you call this 'ere? A climate? Well,娘家🚑 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.""The Doctor took an armchair beside the kitchen stove"
The black men were at once freed from their chains and brought on to the man-o'-war. Then the slave ship was taken in tow by the Violet. And that was the end of Mr. Bones's slave trading.
When he woke up the Doctor found himself lying at the bottom of his own canoe,娘家💏 with Dab-Dab tugging at the ropes which bound his wrists to get him free.
"It was marked 'Urgent,黄睿靓👕' in red ink,黄睿靓🔔 Doctor,娘家👓" said the swallow,娘家👛 "so Speedy thought he had better send it to you by special delivery."In fact,黄睿靓🔒 the Doctor used to discharge him for rudeness regularly about once a month. And the city mails always got tied up soon after. But,娘家⛪ to the Doctor's great relief,娘家🎾 the City Manager always came back just when the tie-up was at its worst and put things right again.
And then because so many letters were written him about good manners and proper behavior,娘家📃 he wrote a "Book of Etiquette for Animals." It is still a very famous work,黄睿靓💡 though copies of it are rare now. But when he wrote it the Doctor printed a first edition of fifty thousand copies and sent them all out by mail in one week. It was at this time,黄睿靓🙆 too,黄睿靓💛 that he wrote and circulated another very well-known book of his called "One-Act Plays for Penguins."
"Build windows in the prison at once,黄睿靓👍" the Emir said to the guards.
THE ANIMALS' MAGAZINE"Where is Wilkins?" he asked in a dazed,娘家👉 sleepy kind of way.
The sun had not yet risen on the gloomy waters of Lake Junganyika before Jip felt the Doctor stirring in his hammock,娘家😵 preparing to get up.
"But these oyster beds don't belong to me,娘家✅" said John Dolittle.
Whenever a new flight of birds were expected at No-Man's-Land the Doctor always had a big supply of food of their particular kind got ready for their arrival before-hand. He had at the big meeting with the leaders put down in his notebook the dates of all the yearly flights of the different kinds of birds,黄睿靓🍦 where they started from and where they went to. And this notebook was kept with great care.
When Speedy came to the hummock and said,娘家📡 "Doctor,娘家📇 it is finished,黄睿靓🈁" Mudface gazed thoughtfully out into the lake and murmured:
"I know!" cried Jip. "It's the dragon! This is King Kakaboochi's mother-in-law we're sitting on!"
"Lor' bless us!" muttered Cheapside. "What a wonderful piano-mover 'e would make to be sure! Great Carter Patterson! Does 'e think the Doctor's goin' to 'ang that on 'is watch-chain?"
"Those must have been some other stolen pearls,娘家⭕ Doctor,娘家📧" said Dab-Dab. "Let's take a look at the ones Jip has."
"'So am I,黄睿靓📎' said the boy. 'Ever since Aunt Emily told us that spooky story of the "Bogey in the Cup-board" I've been scared to death of the dark.'
"He led me to a lonely old farm out on the hills. And there,娘家📩 concealing myself in some bushes,娘家🔢 I watched the great Morland painting one of his famous farm scenes.
When Dab-Dab entered the postmaster's office with the milk she found John Dolittle reading the letter. Looking at the floor,娘家😚 she gave a squawk of disgust."Doctor,娘家🐪" cried the gull,娘家🚅 "we held off the ship as long as we could. But the stupid sailors,黄睿靓😃 not knowing we were trying to save them,娘家🚪 turned hoses on us and we had to give up. The ship is terribly near now."
During the course of the next day's travel the country became,黄睿靓🎺 as the snake had foretold,娘家🆗 freer and more open. Little by little the islands grew fewer and the mangroves not so tangly. In the dreary views there was less land and more water. The going was much easier now. For miles at a stretch the Doctor could paddle,黄睿靓⛎ without the help of his guide,黄睿靓🚒 in water that seemed to be quite deep. It was indeed a change to be able to look up and see a clear sky overhead once in a while,黄睿靓🚹 instead of that everlasting network of swamp trees. Across the heavens the travelers now occasionally saw flights of wild ducks and geese,黄睿靓🈳 winging their way eastward.
