We should have a new sign,’ said Lizard.
‘Exactly what I was thinking!’ cried Snake.
‘A huge sign at the entrance of our burrow!
Snake and Lizard, Helper and Helper.
Big help one egg. Little help one beetle.’
Lizard said in a small squeak, ‘Lizard and Snake.’
He lifted his chin in defiance. ‘Lizard and Snake!
Lizard and Snake!’

But when Snake calls a meeting with Lizard it is decided they are Helpers and helping is a profession and that the payment they receive is a consultation fee rather than just a payment. This leads to the need for a reception room;
