|Gus is then introduced to Lionel's parents, and is surprised to learn that they live in the library. He then meets Leona, who wants him to be her designated reader. Gus suddenly gets nervous and says he doesn't want to read. So, Lionel reads to her instead, and tells the story of "How The Camel Got His Hump", by Rudyard Kipling. After he is done, Leona wants to hear it again, but wants Gus to read it this time. Gus refuses again, and runs off, feeling very "humphy".|
