A Fairy Tale
Mrs. Chicken and the Hungry Crocodile.
One morning, Mrs.Chicken took her bath in a puddle. “Cluck cluck,” she said proudly. “What a pretty chicken I am! Big bright eyes. Short, smooth beak. But I can’t see my wings. This puddle is too small.” She walked down to the river to get a better look. She didn’t know that Crocodile lay in the river all day long, waiting for her dinner. Mrs. Chicken leaned over the water. “Hmm” she said. “ I still can’t see my wings. I see scaly green legs. And a long mouth with sharp teeth. But where is my beak?” Crocodile lay still and waited. “Yum, yum,” she thought. “That’s my dinner”. He waited and said. So Mrs. Chicken took another step into the and then crocodile snapped her leg and ate her up and she was never seen again.
