Hoot was a sort of owl. A Timbuctoo owl.
Everybody used to come and see Hoot when they wanted to know something.
Croak came along. Croak was a sort of frog.
'Because,' replied Hoot. 'Trees can't talk because if trees could talk these wood would be a very noisy place to live!'
Hoot jumped. And so too did Meow, Woof and Croak.'Who said that?' gasped Hoot. 'I did!' said the voice. 'Who?' asked Hoot. 'Me,' said the voice. 'The tree!'
Hoot couldn't believe his ears. 'But trees can't talk,' he spluttered. 'So you said,' said the voice. 'But you were wrong, weren't you?' 'Me? Wrong?' hooted Hoot. 'I'm a wise old owl!' 'Old perhaps,' said the voice. 'But not particularly wise!'
Poor Hoot went inside his house, feeling not quite the wise old owl he thought he was.
Squeak popped his head out of the hole and winked at Meow, Woof and Croak. 'In future,' he said, 'if you want to know something, you'd better ask me!'
Woof looked at him. 'Why is the sky blue?'
'I've no idea,' he said.
