"Eew", said Tiddlywink, for he was covered head to toe in gooey sticky melting chocolate. He jumped into the river and shook shook shook, and scraped scraped scraped, and shook shook shook, and then he got out and rolled in the grass until he was all clean again, and then he hopped into his matchbox and sailed home.

Tiddlywink dreamt all night about the spider and the ball, so the next morning he returned to the spot, and didn't see the basketball anywhere! He looked all around and high up in a tree he saw a big fat hairy spider.

"Hey", he yelled, "are you the same spider I was talking to yesterday?"

The spider thought for a moment, and then replied,

"Um, I don't really know, Yesterday was a long time ago."

"Well", said Tiddlywink, "did you eat a big blue and white basketball?" The spider thought and thought, and finally said,

"Um, I don't really know. I'm not very hungry today, so I must have eaten a lot yesterday, but that was a long time ago, and I just don't know anything about it".

Tiddlywink shook his head and looked around some more for the ball, but as he didn't find it, he decided to head for home. He was just about the reach the riverbank when BAM! He ran smack into a gigantic chocolate cloud!

"Yuk!" he shouted, and the cloud just laughed and said

"What's the matter? Don't you like milk chocolate?"

"Eew", said Tiddlywink, for he was covered head to toe in gooey sticky melting chocolate. He jumped into the river and shook shook shook, and scraped scraped scraped, and shook shook shook, then he got out and rolled in the grass until he was all clean again, and then he hopped into his matchbox and sailed home.

The very next day Tiddlywink decided to put an end to the mystery once and for all, so he rushed back to the very spot and there, in the grass, was the blue and white basketball, right where he'd remembered it, looking as good as new. He searched and found a spider, but this was a tiny little guy.

"Hey", asked Tiddlywink, "Are you the same spider I was talking to yesterday?"

The spider was slow to respond.
