“Come play with me Lion,” said Crocodile, “it’s a swimming competition!”

Splash! Splash! went Crocodile.

“I don’t want to play,” said Lion, “I’ll lose.”

Crocodile was quicker than Elephant, but each time Crocodile got ahead, Elephant tickled him!

TEE-HEE-HEE went Elephant and Crocodile.

Lion sat sadly by himself, watching Elephant and Crocodile swim.
