The Puddleduck Who Couldn’t Find A Puddle

Jemima Puddleduck loved to swim – but in the summer there were very few puddles to jump in ! So off she went in search of some rain – that would help get her feet back wet again. Although she remembered that there had once been a storm, in the Summer, the weather had been really quite warm. She left muddy footprints along in the mud – and didn’t find a puddle to swim in as puddleducks should. Jemima Puddleduck heard about a swimming pool – that was in the garden and was really quite cool. She trod along the garden path looking for it but there wasn’t even a raindrop left in the aftermath. Next, Jemima Puddleduck looked underneath a tree – searching for splashes in which she could swim and wash her feathers before tea. Although overhead, grey rainclouds floated high – she didn’t even find one puddle that she perhaps could try. Jemima Puddleduck next tried a tank – but there was no water in it – when she jumped in, she sank ! There was absolutely nothing that she could have drank ! She stopped off at the shops – where there were a hundred bottles of fizzy pop – she fluttered her wings so much, that one or two dropped off the shelf with a PLOP ! She even bought a new umbrella … but the weather had all cleared up, before someone could tell ‘er ! Still no puddle – not one “SPLASH !” – Jemima Puddleduck went looking for puddles in such a dash, that she fell in the trash with a terrible CRASH ! Coming to the conclusion that puddling wasn’t what it used to be … she took a holiday by the Sea. She took her bucket and spade – and even bought a new pair of flippers – but without a puddle, there was little to either drip her or dip her !
