0*,l*. DM. II, M H*4 GEORGE PULLED THE MANWITCH Synopsis: All th» er»«turt* in Fairyland are enjoying th* Christmas Festival. All except George who knows in his turtle heart that something has happened to the Prince. Chapfer Twtlv* GEORGE TRICKS WOMP The chipmunk, chatterboxes played on and on. The audience cheered and stamped their feet. Even the Snowman was carried away. He waved his new broom wildly in the air and shouted, "Rickety, Rackety, Cha Cha, Chat!" Then he remembered himself and turning to George said loyally, "They arc good but, of course, you will be much bel> ter. There's no doubt about that!" But the turtle had disappeared. He was making Ms way through the crowd, stepping carefully through the tangled legs. Twice he narrowly escaped being smashed by stomping feet and once he was knocked head over tail and landed in a baby pixie's lap. The pixie plopped him down on the ground and went right on clapping her hands to the music. Poor Ceorgti H* longed fo join in the stomping and the clapping, because it surely was the finest music he had ever heard. But he had to find the Prince and that was all that mattered now. He thought sadly of the hundred years he had waited for the Festival and the years he had spent practicing and training his voice. It wasn't so much the prize he \ wanted — it was the honor and pleasure of singing for Santa Claus. But he had to find the Prince. "If only the magic shoes would take me back to Santa Land]" he thought. Without them, how 1 else was he to get back and find the Prince? He pushed through the crowd until he came to the very back 1 of the audience. There was only one pair of legs in front of Mm., He started to circle the kgs and then he stopped and stared open-mouthed v at the feet in front of him. On the feet were two pairs of and the top pair was the pair that Patrick Tweedleknees had given to the Prince to carry him to Fairyland! caught hi* br*«rti. Slowly be raised his head and he saw that Womp, the man- witch, was standing in the shoes. "Where is the Prince?" cried George. Womp looked down distastefully at the disturbance at his feet. "Ah," he drawled, "It's George, the Singing Turtle!" "Who are you?" demanded George. "What have you done with the Prince?" Womp cupped one hand over his ear. "Eh?" he shouted. "I can't hear you!" The chipmunks had struck up another round and the whole audience of fairies and pixies had joined in the singing. George caught the edge of Womp's cloak in his mouth and nudged the manwitch into the woods where it was quieter. "Now," he said heatedly, Answer my questions or I— j » 'You'll do nothing," said Womp, brushing off his cloak, "I am a manwitch and I can turn you into turtle stew anytime I wish." "Wait until Santa hears about this," said George angrily. "Ha!" laughed Womp. "I will deal with Santa as I have with your Prince whom J have Igft imprisoned in a magic circle in the forest east of Santa Land. As for Santa — just look!" He pulled his flute from his pocket and waved it in the air. "When I play my special tune on this flute Santa Claus and the whole of Fairyland will fall asleep and never wake up!" George's heart thumped. "I don't believe it," be quavered weakly. Womp put the flute to his lips, "I cpujd do it npw," Jje said. "But I was hoping to enjoy the Music Festival first." Pooh," retorted George desperately. "You do not have the proper nose to play a flute." "What's the matter with my nose?" "Let me see it closer," said George slyly. Womp bent low to the ground. "Closer," said George. Womp brought his face closer and closer until snap! — the turtle lunged forward and clamped his jaws around the nose of the manwitch, NEXT: GEORGE CAN'T SPEAK.
