  • But now Terence was SO FAT that the branch began to

    C R AC K !

    Terence flapped his wings to try to save

    himself, but he was just too heavy,

    and

  • P-l-o-p!!!!

    Poor Terence landed in the soft, wet

    mud below.

    The scuttling beetle, the tickly spiders,

    the slithering snails, the wriggling

    caterpillars and the fluttering butterflies

    all laughed and laughed.

    From now on I shall only eat delicious

    fruit, seeds and berries for my tea!

    giggled Terence.
