Little Mr. Woffles
B essie and Tom were playing ball as they went along through the wood. They had been to take some eggs to Mrs. Brown, and now they were going home to dinner. They threw the ball from one to the other, and tried to see how many times they could catch it without dropping.
Suddenly Bessie threw rather a high ball and it hit a tree-trunk, bounced up in the air, fell against a branch and disappeared into the middle of the tree.
" Bother! " cried Tom. " Now it's fallen down a hollow tree. You are a silly, Bessie! "
" Sorry! " said Bessie. " But can't you climb up and get the ball, Tom? I expect it's quite easy to reach if you can climb up to that first branch there."
Tom climbed up, but the branch swung down and he was afraid it would break with his heavy weight.
