3 little Tuna and the Great White Shark

Once upon a time, there lived three little Tuna. Their Mum told them to go and make their own houses as they were too big to live with her, so off they went.

The first little Tuna met a Flathead who was selling sand. Happily, he bought some and went off to make his new home.

The second little Tuna met Angelfish selling seaweed. Happily, he bought some and went off to make his new home.

Now the third little Tuna met an Eel who was selling coral.

“Can I have some coral?” asked the Tuna.

“ Yessss, but firsssst you must answer my question” said the Eel.

“Why wasss the sssand wet?”

“Because the sea weed!” answered the clever little Tuna.

Happily, he took his coral and went off to build his new home, complete with 3 spas and a giant plasma TV.

Meanwhile, lurking nearby, watching this all happen was an angry, enormous and very hungry Great White Shark named Tinkerbelle.

Cruising up to the door of the first little Tuna he said,

“Oh Little Tuna, little Tuna let me come in.”

“Not by the scales on my skinny, skin, skin” answered little Tuna.

“Then I’ll bite and I’ll chomp and I’ll crash your house down!”

Bang, bang, chomp, chomp. No more little Tuna. “Burp!”

But the shark was still hungry so he went to the door of the second little Tuna.

“Oh Little Tuna, little Tuna, let me come in.”

“Not by the scales on my skinny, skin, skin.”

“Then I’ll bite and I’ll chomp, and I’ll crash your house down!”

Bang, bang, chomp, chomp. No more little Tuna. “Burp!”

But the shark was still hungry so he went to the door of the third little Tuna.

“Oh little Tuna, little Tuna, let me come in.”

“Not by the scales on my skinny, skin, skin!”

“Then I’ll bite and I’ll chomp, and I’ll crash your house down!”

So the Great White Shark began to chomp and bite, chomp and bite. But the house stood firm.

Clever little Tuna had a plan. While the shark was chomping at his house he swam out the back door down to the sunken pirate ship and brought back a canon.

“Come in “he said to the shark, as he opened the door and blasted the shark’s head off!

Bang, bang, Kaboom! No more Great White Shark!

That afternoon, clever Little Tuna invited his friends over for a shark B.B.Q.

THE END.
