News from Drake’s Island

Me: Have you seen the kitchen?

Nell: Why? Is it in a mess?

Me: No. It’s full of birds.

Nell: Of course it is. I hope you didn’t disturb them.

Me: I just made myself a quick cup of tea and Malcolm buttered me some toast. Nobody seemed to mind.

Nell: Good.

Me: You’re going to laugh but I thought I saw an albatross in the large bird corner.

Nell: You can’t exactly miss him.

Me: Oh, so it really was one?

Nell: Yes, now did they seem busy?

Me: Very. It was awfully noisy.

Nell: Excellent. We need them to get everything sorted before the other animals arrive.

Me: What’s going on, Nell? Are they planning a picnic?

Nell: A picnic? Are you not aware that Benjamin and Horst are stranded on Drake’s Island at the mercy of an evil band of Beefies?

Me: Yes, I know but Poppy says you should always take a picnic because You Never Know.

Nell: True.

Me: So what’s going on?

Nell: Henry managed to contact Horst and help is needed.

Me: How did Henry do that?

Nell: On the Insectnet. They have quite a good signal apparently.

Me: That’s a relief.

Nell: Unfortunately Benjamin’s wire got a little bit crumpled but Henry has managed to fix it with some sticky tape.

Me: Where on earth did he get that from?

Nell: His rucksack I expect. That’s not the point.

Me: No.

Nell: Owl Pacino and Tawny Tim are coordinating the Air Rescue team.

Me: Right.

Nell: And Knitwear Wolf is leading the Sea side of the operation.

Me: I thought he was more of a land animal.

Nell: He is a wolf and he has a paddle board.

Me: Fair enough.

Nell: Wolves are excellent swimmers. Everyone knows that.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
