Meriel levered herself onto her feet and took a wobbly step, then tried for a second, but toppled onto her nappy-padded bottom. Frustrated rather than hurt, she let out a loud wail. This walking lark was a lot harder than her daddies made it look.

Humming sympathetically but encouragingly, Nosy consoled its charge with a Fluff-style ‘hug’, coiling around her. The tears stopped immediately and with a determined expression on her face, Meriel prepared to try again.
