Timmy Willie, who had lived all
his life in a garden, was almost
frightened to death. Presently the
cook opened the hamper and
began to unpack the vegetables.
Out sprang the terrified Timmy
Up jumped the cook on a chair,
exclaiming "A mouse! a mouse!
Call the cat! Fetch me the poker,
Sarah!" Timmy Willie did not wait
for Sarah with the poker; he
rushed along the skirting board
till he came to a little hole, and in
he popped.
