Mrs Armitage and the Big Wave by Quentin Blake Mrs Armitage was on her way to the beach. She was wearing her surfing kit and she carried
her surfboard under her arm. Breakspear the dog ran alongside. When they got to the beach they walked across
the sand and into the water. “What we have to do Breakspear,” said Mrs
Armitage, “is to swim out to sea and wait for a Big
Wave.” But while they were waiting for the Big Wave
Mrs Armitage could see that Breakspear’s little legs were getting tired. “What we need here,” said Mrs Armitage, “is something to keep a faithful dog afloat.” So she swam back to the beach and bought an
inflatable desert island. When she got back, Breakspear climbed on to the desert island and they went on waiting for the Big Wave. But it was a hot, hot day and soon Mrs Armitage was sweating and Breakspear’s tongue was hanging out. “What we need here,” said Mrs Armitage, “is something to protect us from the sun’s
powerful rays.” So she swam off and came back with a cap with a yellow plastic brim for herself and an umbrella with pink spots for Breakspear; and they went on waiting for the Big Wave. Now they were nice and cool; but they soon began to feel rather hungry, as you do at the seaside. “What we need here,” said Mrs Armitage, “is a selection of light snacks to keep us
going.” So she swam off and got a plastic duck and
an empty box and tied them together with string and filled the box with tasty items. When she got back Mrs Armitage ate an avocadoburger and Breakspear had some crunchy dog biscuits and they went on waiting for the Big Wave. After a while a breeze sprang up and blew
briskly along the shore. “This is delightful,” said Mrs Armitage, “but what we need here is something to show
us Wind Force and Direction.” And she swam off and came back with a wind
stocking and a line of bunting and she fixed them so they blew in the breeze, and Mrs Armitage and Breakspear went on waiting
for the Big Wave. A windsurfer passed them at high speed. “Hi there, gorgeous!” he shouted. “What we need here,” said Mrs Armitage, “is something we can hail fellow sportsmen
with.” And she swam off and came back with a red
megaphone. She brought a motorhorn as well because it’s
always a good thing to have a motorhorn. Then she gave a few shouts and hoots and they
went on waiting for the Big Wave. By now all kinds of fish were popping their
heads out of the water to find out what the fuss was about. “I hope there aren’t any sharks,” said Mrs Armitage. And she swam off… …and came back with a sturdy boathook. “Now we can give a prod to any sharks that
want to trouble us,” said Mrs Armitage, and they went on waiting for the Big Wave. And then the Big Wave came. At the same moment they noticed a little girl
called Miranda who had swum out too far and was in difficulties. “Pah-hee-hah-hurgh,” went Mrs Armitage on the motorhorn. She hooked up Miranda with the boathook and
on they went. They did a California slither, a Bali swerve, a Waikiki flip and… …arrived on the beach just in front of Miranda’s parents. They all went to the beach cafe to celebrate. “There’s still time, Breakspear, for us to have another go,” said Mrs Armitage. “But what we really need, what we really need, is…”
