ECART Narrative

The Greedy Hippo Story

There was a greedy hippo. He ate everything in sight. From cheese to peas, chips and
cake, he always had a bite. Now hippo he was selfish. He ate everybody’s food. He ate the cat’s,
the dog’s and the cow’s. He was very, very rude.
One morning after breakfast, he jumped into to the lake. One big splash and he was
stuck. That was a big mistake. The Hippo he sank deeper. Then he began to shout. “Help!
Please help! I’m sinking. Won’t someone pull me out?” The animals all pulled and pulled, as
hard as they were able. The animals all pulled and pulled, as hard as they were able. Out he
popped, ran past them all and ate everything on their table.
The animals were angry and thought they’d play a trick. They made a pie form fish and
soap to make old hippo sick. “Here you are, we’ve made a pie, especially for you!” “Thanks” he
said “I’ll eat it now. I’ve nothing else to do. ” First a nibble, then a bite. Then a great big
swallow. He then went back into the lake, the place he loved to wallow.
But something wasn’t right, thought hippo. “I fell quite odd inside.” Now he had a
tummy ache, as the cooks looked on with pride. Hippo learnt his lesson. It was the end of all
their troubles. He was last seen leaving town blowing fishy bubbles.
