Araminta, Montmorency Mouse, Fairy, with Mr Bear at the helm, kept as cool as cucumbers as their treasure was swept overboard by a giant wave.
It’s a lovely day for a boat trip, you are very kind to invite us, Mr Bear. This is the first time Araminta and Montmorency have been on a boat. I’ve brought a little snack along, I have to think about my tummy.
The Fairy Ferry’, below, at the recent boat naming ceremony and all round extravaganza.
Hum . . . . that sky looks a bit dark, I hope we’re not in for a storm . . .
Grab Minty, Montmorency, it’s getting a bit rough. Can you hold her, Mr Bear?
Oh weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, I don’t like it much.
Oh no! There goes my cucumber . . . . oh dear . . .
Crikey, it’s gone under . . . we’ll never save it now!
‘Don’t worry, Fairy, I have it!!’, squeaks Monty!
You are such brave mouse, Montmorency, thank you nom, nom, so much.
Montmorency, I am sure Minty will agree with me – you are a hero!
But if you’ll excuse me – I’m off! It was very nice Mr Bear but I think I prefer land . . . and the grass under my paws !
