The Three little Minnows and The Big Bad Shark

Once upon a time there was a mama minnow that was about to die. She wanted her little Minnows to find somewhere else to live.
When she died the three little minnows swam different direction. The first little minnow met a clown fish carrying seaweed and the minnow asked , ˘Hey clown fish, can I have some of that straw?÷
So the clown fish gave him some. So the little minnow made himself a house out of straw and moved in. On the very first day that the minnow was living in the seaweed house he saw a shark and he swam inside.
When the shark came to his house he said ˘Little fish little fish may I come in?÷ Then the minnow said ˘Not by the gills on my chinney chin chin!÷
Then the shark said, ˘Then IĂll huff and IĂll puff and blow the house down!÷
Then the house blew down and the shark ate him. So we move to the second minnow and he came by a fish carrying coral and he asked, ˘Hey fish, can I have some of that coral?÷
Then he said, ˘Sure you can have some of my coral.÷
So he took some and made a house of coral. Just as he finished moving in the furniture he saw a shark. So he swam inside his coral house and hid. When the shark came to his house the shark said ˘Little fish little fish may I come in?÷
Then the minnow said, ˘Not by the gills on my chinney chin chin!÷
Then the shark got angry and said, ˘Then IĂll huff and puff and blow the house down!÷ Then he ate the little minnow.
Now came the third pig he was the smart one and he came across a giant whale carrying small chunks of rocks. So the minnow asked, ˘May I have some giant whale?÷
So the whale gave some to him. Out of the rocks that the whale gave him the little minnow made a house with it. Just as he finished his house the minnow saw a giant shark.
So he ran inside the house and hid. When the shark came he said, ˘Little pig little pig may I come in?÷
Then the minnow said, ˘Not by the gills on my chinny chin chin.÷
Then the shark said, ˘ IĂll huff and ill puff and blow your house down.÷
After that the house did not fall down it stood. Then he tried to blow it down again and again, but it didnĂt work. After all those tries he saw a chimney.
So he went up there and tried to go threw and got half way but got stuck because he was so big. So the third little minnow lived happily ever after.
