An Arbour Tale

All the Teds at the Mas, wanted to perform a show; ”Un Spectacle in a Bread Box”!!

The Gruffalo’s mouse, this one is called Ratatouille, would be The Master of Ceremonies: he’s the one wearing the silver necklace.

Here he is with four players who will compete for the best performance.

Mutterings of, ”Humph, didn’t think much of that!”, and “Wow, he did absolutely nothing, that’s really lazy!” were whispered around the watching Teds and friends.

…”And now for the singing duet, Potter and October Rose!” proclaimed the Master of ceremonies!

“Too late to say that now!” said another…..
