"Let us rest here under this bush," said Angelina, hopping up to … . "We can have a sleep, and when the moon is up we will go on."
"I think you are wonderful," said Mrs Koala, and all three lay at the foot of the bush, the two little Koalas were glad to rest … and tired little legs.
In the cool shade they slept until the sun went down, then waking up, and feeling very hungry, Mrs Koala and Blinky … . Blinky rushed ahead as they neared the top and stuffed his mouth as full as possible.
"Don't gobble," said Mrs Bear, cuffing his ear.
"They're so juicy," said young Blinky, as he peered over the branch and threw a few leaves down to Angelina.
"They are nice," said Angelina, as she …them ever so gently, "I have never tasted these leaves before; but we must not stop here any longer. This is strange country, and we have a long way to go."
"I don't want to go," wailed Blinky, "I'm tired."
"Both of you hop on my back and we'll be there in no time. I can leap along … like a kangaroo."
After some arguing over the matter, Mrs Bear and Blinky climbed on her back, and away they went. It was great fun. Flop, flop, flop, through the grass, ducking their heads to miss the branches and twigs of low-growing trees, and then racing along through open country.
Many a rabbit looked up in surprise from his supper-table to see …, and possums screeched in the branches as they looked down at some new kind of wallaby, as they thought. At last, breathless and tired Angelina stopped at the foot of a tall, straight gum-tree. Silver white it stood in the moonlight with branches spread far up in the sky.
"Here is your new home," said Angelina.
"How beautiful," murmured Mrs Bear, as she and Blinky crawled down from their friend's back.
"It is safe, and you will be very happy here, and Blinky will have a playmate." Angelina flopped on the grass, her long legs sprawled out, and she panted loudly.
"Where are you going to live?" Mrs Bear inquired. "We want you near us, please."
"I'm going to live just round the corner," said Angelina. "I have a friend who is waiting for me."
"Is she … ?" asked Mrs Bear kindly. "No!" replied Angelina. "She is a he!" And, blushing, she looked very slowly down at her paws; then suddenly turned and hopped away.
"Dear, dear," grunted Mrs Bear, "the world is full of surprises."
"Now, you young scamp, come here and climb this tree with me," and Blinky scrambled on to his mother's back.
"I think it's quite time you used your own legs," said Mrs Bear. But she made no attempt to shake him off.
