Hannah’s school has been sorting through their readers, so my mother in law (who works at the school) bought home some of the unwanted readers for me. They were printed in the early 1980’s so there is a good chance I read the same stories myself as a child, but to be honest I think I would have remembered these.
Look at those titles “Shooting foxes”, “Wagging school”, and “When I broke the office window”. They are hilarious, so today I thought I would share my favourite – “The Sick Chook”. (A chook is a chicken for my international readers)
(Murgatroyd the chicken?)
When the other chickens were fighting over the feed, the sick chook just sat.
Grandma crushed an asprin and put it on a teaspoon with some water. (look at that poor chook! – please consult your vet before doing this)
I held the chicken while grandma poured the asprin down the chook’s throat.
(poor grandma looks like she is about to have a break down).
