MISCHIEF AGAIN 

by 
Enid Blyton and Paul Kaye 

Here is the second book about the 
irresistible Laughing Kitten — so en- 
chanting that all animal-lovers, young 
or old, will love it. 

Tinker romps through the pages 
once more, trying to teach the puppy 
how to play the gramophone, how 
to use the camera (in the wrong way !), 
what a typewriter is or isn't for, and 
what happens when you try to answer 
the telephone! Floppy the puppy 
is only too willing to learn, and to 
share in all Tinker's mischief. 

Again the photographs are superb 
— almost incredibly good in the way 
they portray these ingenuous young 
creatures. They are by Paul Kaye, 
and the story is by that well-loved 
writer, Enid Blyton. 

This unusual book will please 
everyone, and its pages will be turned 
many times, with delighted chuckles. 
Once more Paul Kaye, Enid Blyton, 
and the Kitten have presented us 
with a truly enchanting book.

What are Floppy and Tinker up to 

this morning? Mischief again ! 
" Floppy, help me to put this record 

on," says Tinker. 
44 Then we can have some music. 

Careful now!" 




Now, I'll wind up the gramophone 
and the music will begin. 
See, I'm turning the handle — 
aren't I clever?' 



"Oh Floppy, why do you sit 
on the record like that? 
You're going round 
and round 

and round!"

'Floppy, get off and I'll wind it up 
again and put on another record." 

'No-/'// get one. Tinker- 
it's my turn to put one on."

Oh, you bad puppy! You've broken

Help me, Tinker — it's sharp, it's 
hurting me ! Oh, please do take it away !

4 There you are, poor old Floppy! 
I've taken it away. 
Is that better? Cheer up!' 





"Quick, let's go! 
Somebody's coming and 
they sound VERY cross. 
Run, Floppy, run!'

I'll go up and see, Floppy. Here I go,

CRASH! 

Whatever 's happened? 

Was that an earthquake

Where are we? 
Oh dear, what a mess! 



Floppy, I've cut my paw

Well, Tinker, lick it better!"

bump on your poor little nose! 
Please do let me kiss that better."

We'll lie down together

Now I'll do a little exploring all on

Why, it has a little open door ..."

because I'm not very big."

If Floppy doesn't come to

little kennel? Can I come in?'

It's a camera, silly! 

I'll take a picture of you, shall I? 

Oh Floppy, don't stand there 

listening to the other end 

you won't hear a thing!' 




<,(, 



And it's no use talking 

into it, either. 

It isn't a telephone. 

Really, Floppy, 

you don't know very much!' 



41. 



Well, Tinker, 

tell me what to do then. 

I'll do just what you say!

camera, Floppy — there, I've 
taken a BEAUTIFUL picture 
of you. 
You're a very good puppy."

Oooooh! The camera's falling- 
get out of the way, Floppy!'

Now look what you've done! 
Don't let's play with 
the camera any more. 
Let's go and look 
for something else!' 





What's this, Tinker? Do you know?' 
Yes, it's a typewriter. 
I can write a letter with 
it if I tap these little 
round keys. Just watch." 




Floppy, get down! 
You're spoiling 
my beautiful letter. 
You're being naughty again.

Don't look so angry. I'll come

Don't be silly ! "

Just watch what I do ! ' 




"You lift the receiver off, 

like this 

and then you talk into 
the end with the hole ..." 



Now I'll try, Tinker — 
quick, give me the receiver. 
Oh dear, 

now I'm all tangled up 
in the flex ! "

4 Ah! Here's another kitten 
to play with. 
He's sitting on that 
big round cymbal. 
I'll jump up on the drum and 
jab him with the drum-stick!' 




"Biff! Aren't I clever 
with the drum-stick? 
Come down off the cymbal 
and play with me, kitten!' 



"What! You won't come? 
Well, take that then— biff-biff ! "

Tinker, stop that, 

you bad little fellow! 

I'll soon show you 

how sharp my claws can be ! '

There now, Tinker — 

you've hit your own nose 

with the stick — 

and you've fallen off 

the drum. 

It serves you right!' 



Tinker runs away in a hurry. 

Ah, what is this — 

a saucer of milk !

" Quack, quack — and so do I!' 

says somebody nearby.

Don't you know better manners

I know how to drink

I'm tired of puppies and kittens

to that old brown horse. 
Hallo, Dobbin, what's in your bag?'

Hrrrrrrrrrumph ! Climb up and see, 
little kitten. I'm eating my dinner 
and it's very nice. I'll take my nose 
out and then you can see into the bag.

in and get lost among my oats 

there, I thought you'd go 
head-over-heels ! '

Peep-bo! Here I am, Dobbin! I don't 
like your oats and I'm going home. 
Do you know the way, please? 
I feel rather lonely." 




" I'll climb up on top of your gate, Dobbin, 
and see if I can spy my way home from 
there. I want Floppy, he's my friend. 
Oh, I believe I can see him! ' 



"Yes, it's Floppy. 
Oh dear, he doesn't seem 
very pleased to see me. 
Hallo, Floppy ! I'm back again."

THE LAUGHING KITTEN 

by 
Enid Blyton and Paul Kaye 

Tinker, the mischievous, laughing 
little kitten, romps through the pages 
with his friends the puppies — surely 
the most natural, lively, lovable 
kitten that ever faced a camera and 
didn't know it! 

The superb photographs are by 
Paul Kaye and the story is, of course, 
by that best-loved of all children's 
writers, Enid Blyton. 

This book will enchant not only 
the children, for whom it is written, 
but also all animal-lovers, no matter 
how long ago their childhood. 

This is a merry, amusing, real-life 
story, with Tinker the Kitten as the 
gay little hero. Open the book where 
you like, you will have to smile. 

Children of all ages will love this 
book — it is, in fact, that uncommon 
phenomenon, a book with absolutely 
no limit in age range — the combina- 
tion of Enid Blyton and Paul Kaye 
and the Kitten is quite irresistible.
