RUPERT AND BILLY GOAT
“What are those ropes?” Rupert asks anxiously. “Where’s the ladder?” “The men pulled it up after them, of course,” says Billy. “This is our own climbing rope. I fastened it by the middle, round that stake, and slid down the two ends. Now we must go back again.” “Oh dear, I don’t think my arms are strong enough to climb such a height,” murmurs the little bear. “Then I’ll go first and tell you how to do it,” replies his pal. And up he goes, while Rupert waits.
