THE TALE OF CHUCKLE AND PIP
He tipped up his watering-can. First he watered Mr. Spink and his yellow hat.
Mr. Spink. We must certainly buy umbrellas, or we shall be soaked through before we arrive, and we don't want the dear King to think we are a family of drowned rats! "
They hurried to Chuckle's shop. They bought one big umbrella to share between Mr. and Mrs. Spink, and four tiny umbrellas, one for each child. Then they set off happily to the palace, holding them over their heads.
Pip laughed loudly, and Chuckle poked his head out of the shop-door and laughed too. Then he caught sight of two or three more people coming along. " Sh! " he said. " Here are Fairy Trip, Pixie Tiptoe, and Brownie Longbeard."
Well, as soon as they passed under Pip's tree, Trip, Tiptoe, and Longbeard got a good watering. How disgusted they were!
" Raining! " said Longbeard, shaking the drops out of his beautiful silvery beard. "What bad luck! "
" And I left my umbrella at home! " said Fairy Trip.
