The summer is nearing its end and it has rained a lot in August. Both things together mean that lots of mushrooms and toadstools are appearing. Niks and Naks wanted to go out and gather some and Deimos wanted to come along, too.

Deimos: Look! here is a big fly agaric!

Niks: Big enough to serve as an umbrella for two little trolls.

Naks: But too flimsy to sit on.

Niks: Never mind, we'll pick this and take it home.

Deimos: this a fairly new one as it is so small and round. I wonder if it is good to sit on...

Deimos: Aaauuuugh, it's slippery - especially as I'm wearing leather pants!

Naks: Come down then, so we can pick it and take it home!

Deimos: Here is a really big one!

Deimos: Big enough for one demon and two little trolls!

Niks: We'll definitely take this one home!

Deimos: You'll have lots of fly agarics for your patent medicines.

Niks: We'll use some to kill flies.

Naks: We love flies flambé, you know.

Deimos: Mountain ash berries are ripening, too!

Niks: Great! We'll take these home, too.

Naks: Deimos, throw some down to us!

Deimos: Are you going to use these for patent medicine, too?

Naks: No, we'll make jelly of them.

Niks: It tastes great with flies flambé, you know.
