In which Annie does serious


'You really shouldn't have,' said Norma.

Annie looked at her.

'Books are important things,' said Norma.

Annie looked at her.

'And you wouldn't want to set a bad example to your little students would you?' said Norma.

Annie poked her tongue out at Norma.

'You're impossible sometimes!' said Norma.

Annie thought about this for a while and then nodded her head.

'Life would be boring if we were all the same,' she said, 'and the trifle was very tasty.'

'But it was only a picture!' mooed Norma.

'You have to use your imagination sometimes,' replied Annie, '...or possibly all the time.'

'That's fine,' said Norma, 'but there is a thing called reality.'

Annie looked at her.

'So did you want to go for a paddle then?' asked Norma.

'Yippee!' shouted Annie and she stampeded off towards the beach.
