Animal Fantasy: November 12, 2015

[A]s Nurse Lugton snored, the animals heard the wind roaring through the forest.  Down they went to drink, and as they trod, the blue curtain (for Nurse Lugton was making a curtain for Mrs John Jasper Gingham’s drawing-room window) became made of grass, and roses and daisies; strewn with white and black stones; with puddles on it, and cart tracks, and little frogs hopping quickly lest elephants should tread on them.
