The Broken Bridge
It was made of wood and rope and ancient creaking boards, and it stretched all the way above the thorny thicket to the top of a another very tall tree. It was a long way to the other side...
The Slippery Slopes
"She shot off along the branch at tremendous speed, shouting with pleasure. moss was next, waving his arms and whopping. Then came Swampy. He got a bit mixed up when he pushed off, so he did it backwards..."
