Synopsis

Mrs Chicken and the hungry crocodile by Won-Ldy Paye, Margaret H. Lippert

One morning Mrs. Chicken took her bath in a puddle. Cluck, cluck, she said proudly. What a pretty chicken I am! Mrs. Chicken can't see her wings in the puddle, so she walks down to the river where she can admire all of herself. She doesn't know that Crocodile is there, waiting for dinner - and a tasty chicken would do nicely! To save herself, Mrs. Chicken tells Crocodile that they are sisters. But how can a speckled chicken and a green-skinned crocodile be related? Mrs. Chicken had better prove that they are, and fast, because Crocodile is getting hungrier...
