The Sandy Rabbits

2006-07-14 00:15

  Mr. and Mrs. Sandy Rabbit and their family lived in a hole near some sand dunes.

  They had lived there a long time, and the hole was old and draughty and they wanted to exchange it with somebody for a hole farther away from the sea.

  Then, one morning, Mrs Sandy Rabbit met her friend Mrs. Eider Duck on the sands. Mrs Eider Duck said that she would buy the hole.

  “I can block up the draughts with some of my down,” she said.

  So she gave Mrs Sandy Rabbit two bags of her best down in exchange for the hole.

  But when Mrs Sandy Rabbit arrived home with the down, her husband was very cross.

  “You have sold our hole for two bags of down!” he cried. “Now we have to turn out in the cold and we have no home at all.”

  “We can sleep in the bags of eider down. It will be quite warm inside them,” said Mrs Sandy Rabbit.

  And that's exactly what the Sandy Rabbit family did. And they were very comfortable, too. Very soon, this gave Mrs Sandy Rabbit an idea.

  Every morning she combed her family with a large wooden comb. Then she knitted up all the bits of fluff into long strips, which she then joined together and filled with the eider down.

  Soon she had made a whole pile of eiderdowns and all her friends wanted one in exchange for a hole or a nest.

  But, strangely enough, the only hole she longed for was their old draughty hole by the sea. So back they went to ask Mrs Eider Duck if she would exchange it for an eiderdown.

  Mrs Eider Duck was pleased to do so. She had found a nice big rock which she liked better than the hole.

  So back went the Sandy Rabbits into their old hole. It was no longer draughty because Mrs Eider Duck had filled in the cracks with her down.

  Besides, they each had a nice cosy eiderdown now to keep them warm on chilly nights-thanks to clever Mrs Sandy Rabbit.
