The Turtle and the Ducks


The turtle wanted to travel around the world. But he could not, because he walked so slowly.
One day the turtle met two ducks. The turtle said to the ducks, “Please, would you help me see the world? I will hold a stick in my mouth. You each take one end of the stick and we can fly around the world.”
The ducks said, “Sure, we will do it. But do not speak, or you will fall.”
They started the trip. The ducks flew up high when they met a crow.
The crow was surprised and asked, “Who thought of this great idea?”
The turtle began to say, “I did…”
As the turtle opened his mouth to brag, he lost the stick. He fell down a long way and died.
