spat out the stone 씨를 뱉다

The truth was at last beginning to dawn on the Duke. He put a cherry into his mouth and chewed it slowly. Then he spat out the stone. ‘I like the way you picked these cherries for me,‘ he said. ‘Could you also pick my apples in the autumn?‘
‘We could! We could! Of course we could!‘ we shouted. - P30

cross 짜증난, 약간 화가 난
barley 보리

Then, one Saturday morning, I saw Philip and William coming out of the woods with their father, and they were carrying a lovely young deer.
This made me so cross that I started shouting at them. - P3

‘No! No! No!‘ called out Mr and Mrs Gregg, both together. ‘Don‘t shoot! Please don‘t shoot!‘
‘Why not?‘ said one of the ducks. It was the one who wasn‘t holding a gun. ‘You are always shooting at us.‘
‘Oh, but that‘s not the same!‘ said Mr Gregg.
‘We are allowed to shoot ducks!‘
‘Who allows you?" asked the duck.
‘We allow each other,‘ said Mr Gregg.
‘Very nice,‘ said the duck. ‘And now we are going to allow each other to shoot you.‘
(I would have loved to have seen Mr Gregg‘s face just then.)
‘Oh, please!‘ cried Mrs Gregg. ‘My two little children are up here with us! You wouldn‘t shoot my children!‘ - P40

And in the middle of the yard stood Philip and William, with a sack of their father‘s best barley beside them. They were surrounded by ducks, doves, pigeons, sparrows, robins, larks, and many other kinds that I did not know, and the birds were eating the barley that the boys were scattering by the handful. - P52

이쯤되면 소심한 할아버지의 결혼 사기극?! 남의 거북을 생이별 시키고.. 요즘이라면 나올 수 없는 이야기 아닐지.. 로알드 달도 찝찝했는지 P.S.로 알피가 잘 살고 있다고 알려주고 말이다. 뻔뻔한 동화를 너무 다큐로 받는 것인가??

call a halt 정지를 명하다

But now perhaps it was time to call a halt, and that evening Mr Hoppy was just about to go out and suggest to Mrs Silver that she ought to weigh. Alfie when a startled cry from the balcony below brought him outside fast. - P42
