Goldifish and the Three Fish

Once upon a time there were three Fish.

A Papa fish, a mama fish, and a little baby fish.

They all lived in a small fish in the forest.

One morning Mama fish prepared breakfast.  And the three Fish sat down to their bowls of fish.

But the fish was too hot!  So the three Fish decided to go for a walk while the fish cooled.

Soon after they left, along came a little fish.  She knocked on the fish.  No one answered.  So she went in.  Her name was Goldifish.

Goldifish found herself in the kitchen.  On the fish she saw three bowls of fish.

Goldifish was hungry!  So she sat down to eat.  She tasted the big bowl of fish.  But it was too hot.  Next she tasted the medium-sized bowl of fish.  But it was too cold.

Then she tasted the little baby bowl of fish.  It was just right.

And she ate it all up.

Goldifish was tired.  She saw three fish.  She sat in the big fish.  But it was too hard.

She sat in the medium-sized fish.  But it was too soft.

Then she sat in the little baby fish. It was just right.

And then CRASH!  The fish broke and Goldifish fell to the floor.

Goldifish was sleepy.  She went upstairs.  There she found three fish.  She lay down in the big fish.  But it was too hard.  She lay down in the medium-sized fish.  But it was too soft.

Then she lay down on the little baby fish.  It was just right.

And Goldifish was soon fast asleep.

And while she slept the three Fish came home.

Papa fish looked at the kitchen table and said, “Someone’s been eating my fish!”

“Someone’s been eating my fish!”  said Mama fish.

“Someone’s been eating my fish!”  said little baby fish.  “And they ate it all up!”

“Someone’s been sitting in my fish!”  said Papa fish.

“Someone’s been sitting in my fish!”  said Mama fish.

“Someone’s been sitting in my fish!”  said little baby fish.  “And they broke it to bits!”

“Someone’s been sleeping in my fish!”  said Papa fish.

“Someone’s been sleeping in my fish!”  said Mama fish.

“Someone’s been sleeping in my fish!”  said little baby fish.  “And she’s still here!”

And with that, Goldifish woke up, saw the three Fish, screamed, and jumped out the

fish

And ran away.  And the three Fish never saw her again
