Uncle Odd arrives Suddenly there was a shout from behind the odd old tree. "I left this one out!" cried a voice. It was Uncle Odd. Blue-bug was delighted. It was a cup with no spots. "10 plus 0 makes 10," she said. "Now that I'm here let's have tea," said Uncle Odd. "But we haven't enough cups!" said Big-bug, dismayed. Uncle Odd smiled. "Don't worry," he said, "I've brought my own mug. It'll be the odd-bug-mug-out." They all laughed. "I've brought some biscuits too," said Uncle Odd. |
Uncle Odd put the biscuits out on a large cloth.
"Everyone is to have the same number of biscuits each," said Uncle Odd. "How many are there of us?" said Blue-bug, "and how many biscuits are there to share?" The odd-bugs worked it out and then they had tea. How many biscuits were there and how many did each odd-bug get? |
