Listen to an audio clip

Nestor is fishing with a really smart looking fishing rod. Start with his long curly tail on the left as it curls round and round. Now follow the curve of his back up to his big red ear. Feel all over his head. Which way is he looking? He's looking to the right. Find his eye, eyebrow, red nose and smiling mouth. Nestor looks just like his Dad, but is a little smaller and doesn't have a beard at all never mind a white one! Follow his outline down to find his arm and the fingers of his paw. Move down again and trace the outline of his back leg, bent forward as he leans to cast his fishing line.
