‘...Before long, Posie had reached the blackberry bushes by the woodland's edge. She put her baskets down on a nearby moss-covered log and undid the buttons on her rose-hip hooded coat, while she decided where to start picking.

Out of the corner of her eye, she saw the baskets rise up a little and then move slowly along the log all by themselves...

"That's strange," muttered Posie to herself. I've heard of flying broomsticks, but floating baskets is just silly! So brushing down her purple tunic and drawing herself up as tall as possible, she marched over to the naughty baskets with her hands on her hips.

"Now look here!" she said firmly, whilst waggling a finger at them. "I've carried you to this lovely spot by the blackberry bushes, so the least you could do is sit still!" And with that, she lifted the baskets up swiftly by their handles.

Well, you'll never guess what she saw underneath? A team of teeny tiny ants!


"Conkers and crab apples!" Posie said in amazement, as she stared at the dinky insects." I thought my baskets were floating by themselves, but you little ones were carrying them away!"...'
