me how to breathe underwater.”
From ‘Whippersnapper Whale Worries When She Misses Meals’ – MERMAIDS ARE COOL

From ‘Lucy Mouse At The Opera House’ - MICETRALIA
They were soon all ensconced in a big black car and whisked off down the road. The driver kept
up a constant chatter but Lucy couldn't understand a word of it. "What language is he speaking?" she
asked Mr Sassafras when the driver was busy negotiating a turn and couldn't hear her. "It's English, same as us," said Mr Sassafras. "Then why does it sound so different?" asked Lucy, her poor ears straining to catch a word. "It's all this hot sunshine," said Ginger Tom matter-of-factly. "It buckles the words as they speak, so it sounds different." He sounded so knowledgeable Lucy was impressed. "Oh, " she said, quite satisfied. "You'll find," Ginger Tom went on. "You'll find, in time, that you'll be able to understand perfectly what they say."
From ‘The Invisible Angel’ – ANGELS WITH ATTITUDE
