JACK SINGS TO HIMSELF
Salty? Come on.
What's going on, girl? What?
You're a funny old thing and no mistake.
I wonder, has it got anything to do with the ball in my pocket? Yeah?
Let me see, where did I put it now?
Ha-ha! Captain Periwinkle!
At ease! Hello, Jack! Where's Salty?
She's off chasing a ball somewhere.
She'll be back soon. She always comes back.
-You haven't seen her ball, have you?
-No, I've been filling my pepper pots.
-Got to keep them shipshape!
-I'm sure it'll turn up.
Oh-ho! Talking of things turning up!
-Where have you been, girl?
No, there's no ball!
Don't worry, I'm sure we'll find it.
What's up with you today, Salty?
No, steady! Steady, girl! Oh!
Oh, mind the pepper!
Achoo! I'm sorry, Captain.
Salty, what's the matter with you?
That'll be my p-p-pepper! Achoo!
Not to worry, I'll get it cleaned up in a jiff.
We're causing chaos here. Oh... I'll see you later, Captain.
-See you later, Jack.
Got to keep things shipshape!
There she is, the Rainbow!
Well, what have you got for us today, my dear?
Heh-heh! Come on, Salty.
Here we are.
There you go, Salty. Let's get comfy.
That pepper went everywhere, didn't it?
I hope Captain Periwinkle sorted things out.
Here, do you remember that time we went in search of some pepper?
Let me get comfortable and I'll tell you all about it.
This is going to whiffle your whiskers.
Once upon a twinkly time,
the Rainbow set off from Staithes,
waved goodbye to Whitby and disappeared over the horizon.
It was a bitterly cold day, so Salty and I cuddled up together
and sang a song to keep warm.
# Just Saltly Dog and me
# Upon the briny sea
# We're sailing off to who knows where?
# It's ever so cold, but we don't care
# We're cuddled up snug like two bugs in a rug
# Just Salty Dog and me. #
"I'm as hungry as a gobbly gannet, Salty, my girl," I said,
"let's have lunch early."
So, I unwrapped my cheese and tomato sandwich. Oh, it did look tasty!
I took a bite...
I'd forgotten to add the black pepper.
"It just doesn't taste the way I like it," I told Salty, sadly.
"I always like a bit of black pepper."
Well, Salty dashed off and returned with her favourite ball.
"That's not going to taste very nice on my sandwich," I said,
but Salty had other ideas.
She thought a game of Catch would cheer me up.
"All right," I said, picking up the ball.
I threw it and we heard a 'boink' and a 'clunk' and a 'achoo'
and it was gone.
Salty covered her head with her paws.
All in all, we were not having a good day. No pepper and now no ball!
"Tell you what," I announced,
"if we sail all the way to the Land of Spices,
"we can pick up some black pepper for my sandwich
"and we might be able to buy a new ball, too."
The Rainbow let out a cough.
"Now, listen, Rainbow," I said,
"I know the Land of Spices is a long way from Staithes,
"but the wind is with us," I said.
So, we headed south at a fair old speed
and, apart from the odd cough and splutter from the Rainbow,
everything seemed to be going well.
But suddenly, I spotted a huge dark cloud heading towards us.
"Uh-oh," I said.
We were approaching the Cape of Storms.
"Hold on to your whiskers, Salty!"
"Many a ship has been dashed on these rocks," I told her.
And then, before we could say 'somersaulting seagulls',
a terrible storm was upon us.
The Rainbow heaved and creaked
and it coughed and it spluttered
and it tipped this way and that.
And then, out of the whirling waters
came a huge, hulking blue shadowy thing.
It was Bluey the whale!
"Help, Bluey!" I cried. "Help!"
And then Bluey did an incredible thing.
He opened up his mighty mouth and...
..he swallowed up the whole storm,
wind and rain and all.
And before we knew it, the sky was blue
and the sea was gentle again.
"Boggling barnacles, that was magnificent!" I gasped.
Bluey had saved us.
"No problem, said Bluey, "I like swallowing storms."
We told Bluey that we were heading for the Land of Spices
because I wanted some pepper for my cheese and tomato sandwich.
"Rig up a sail and I'll help you," said Bluey.
So, we did.
Ever so gently, Bluey blew out
the wind he had sucked up.
"It's all right, I'll not blow out the rain," he said, with a chuckle.
"Good idea!" Salty woofed.
She'd had enough bad weather for one day.
Soon, we reached the Land of Spices.
It was a hot, dusty place and all the trees looked droopy.
Well, we came to a market full of stalls
selling all sorts of unusual foods
and wonderful whiffs wafting on the breeze.
Salty's nose twitched.
She could smell black pepper.
"Where is it, my girl?" I said.
Eagerly, Salty lead the way.
She is ever so good at sniffing.
She stopped at a stall
that sold exotic spices.
"Welcome to the Land of Spices," said the lady on the stall.
"How can I help you?"
"Do you have any black pepper?" I asked.
"Oh, yes, the best black pepper," said the lady,
"but this is my last bag.
"Things haven't been growing well here.
"It hasn't rained for months."
Well, I felt a bit bad about taking the last of the lady's pepper.
I wondered if there was something we could do for her.
And then Salty's whiskers whiffled.
She was having one of her bright ideas.
She raced to the water's edge and had a word with Bluey,
and Bluey grinned and then heaved.
A swirling grey cloud rose up from Bluey's blowhole.
It was the rain that Bluey had sucked in earlier.
Up and up it went,
higher and higher,
and then settled over the Land of Spices.
And then... Pitter-patter.
..it started to rain cool, cool raindrops.
It rained and it rained
and the trees lifted up their leaves
and little flowers flowered
and people whooped with joy.
"Rain! You've brought us rain!
"Thank you," said the lady at the spice stall.
"It's all thanks to Bluey," I said, as we waved goodbye
and headed off with the little bag of black pepper.
It was only as we got to the quayside that we realised
we hadn't bought Salty a new ball.
Salty was a little sad, she does love a ball,
but she knew that it was time to go home.
The Rainbow let out a worrying cough as we climbed on board.
"If the Rainbow's not feeling well,
"I can blow you home," said Bluey,
"I still have wind in my belly." And...
And off we sailed.
And, at last, I took out my sandwich
and sprinkled on some black pepper.
And as Bluey blew... "Whoo!"
..some of the pepper wafted upwards
and into the Rainbow's funnel.
Uh-oh! Pepper makes the Rainbow sneeze.
The Rainbow let out a huge sneeze from her funnel
and out popped Salty's ball.
Ha-ha! Salty was just about as happy as a dog can be.
Even the Rainbow seemed to smile.
"Well, Bluey, you have made everyone happy today," I said.
"You are a lovely, lovely friend."
And with that, he blew us all the way back to Staithes and home.
Oh, what a trip! And all because of a bit of pepper!
Achoo! Excuse me!
Did you like that story, Salty?
All true, of course.
Mind you, my stories always are.
Come on, girl.
Hello, there, Ernie!
Eh up, Jack! Hello, Salty!
-She's a bit frisky today.
Yeah, she's wearing me out chasing balls.
Oh! It's a ball you want, is it, Salty?
Well, look at what I've got here!
-Oh, Ernie, no, no, no!
-I can't leave you two alone for two minutes, can I?!
Sorry, Captain Periwinkle.
Don't worry. There's no more pepper, or balls, for you three!
A nice quiet cup of tea, instead.
Jack and Salty go in search of some pepper for a cheese and tomato sandwich, and the Rainbow catches a cold.
