The Fast Snail

There was once a boy named Jyotish. He lived in Singapore. He always wanted a pet. He had to keep on asking his parents for one. But it was no good. His parents told him "if you are good, you will get a pet". Days and days passed and Jyotish behaved his best. One day his parents had a surprise for Jyotish. They were holding a Chimpanzee, Antelope, and a Snail! Jyotish screamed with joy "Yippee!" He grabbed the chimp and hugged it. Then he stared at the snail and antelope. He hugged them carefully. He tried to hold the antelope but it kept on slipping from his hand. Then finally he got it.

Soon, days passed by and the chimp grew bigger and bigger until he was as big as Hanuman! Jyotish was surprised. He took his animals and went to the forest to play. A lot of people gathered around them. They said, "let the antelope and the snail have a race". The antelope started teasing the snail.

Before the race, the chimp (Hanuman) told the snail a trick. He took the snail up and put it on a skate. Then the race began. The antelope started running fast. The people cheered for it. Then the chimp gave the snail a little push with his hand. The skate went Zoooom and hit the finishing line. Wow, a surprise finish! The snail won!! The antelope learned his lesson not to show-off!


Problem: 1. Jyothish wanted a pet.
2. The antelope teased the snail
1. Chimp, antelope, and snail became his pets.
2. Chimp put the snail on a skate.
1. If you are good, you'll get what you want.
2. Don't show-off!
