4 ust o tories y udyard ipling or all worksheets ow the hale got his hroat n the sea, once upon a time, my est eloved, there was a hale, and he ate fishes. e ate the starfish and the garfish, and the crab and the dab, and the plaice and the dace, and the skate and his mate, and the mackereel and the pickereel, and the really truly twirly-whirly eel. ll the fishes he could find in all the sea he ate with his mouth so! ill at last there was only one small fish left in all the sea, and he was a small tute ish, and he swam a little behind the hale s right ear, so as to be out of harm s way. hen the hale stood up on his tail and said, m hungry. nd the small tute ish said in a small stute voice, oble and generous etacean, have you ever tasted an? o, said the hale. hat is it like? ice, said the small tute ish. ice but nubbly. hen fetch me some, said the hale, and he made the sea froth up with his tail. ne at a time is enough, said the tute ish. f you swim to latitude ifty orth, longitude orty est (that is magic), you will find, sitting on a raft, in the middle of the sea, with nothing on but a pair of blue canvas breeches, a pair of suspenders (you must not forget the suspenders, est eloved), and a jack-knife, one ship-wrecked ariner, who, it is only fair to tell you, is a man of infinite-resource-and-sagacity. o the hale swam and swam to latitude ifty orth, longitude orty est, as fast as he could swim, and on a raft, in the middle of the sea, with nothing to wear except a pair of blue canvas breeches, a pair of suspenders (you must particularly remember the suspenders, est eloved), and a jack-knife, he found one single, solitary shipwrecked ariner, trailing his toes in the water. (e had his ummy s leave to paddle, or else he would never have done it, because he was a man of infinite-resource-and-sagacity.) hen the hale opened his mouth back and back and back till it nearly touched his tail, and he swallowed the shipwrecked ariner, and the raft he was sitting on, and his blue canvas breeches, and the suspenders (which you must not forget), and the jack-knife. e swallowed them all down into his warm, dark, inside cup-boards, and then he smacked his lips so, and turned round three times on his tail. ut as soon as the ariner, who was a man of infinite-resource-and-sagacity, found himself truly inside the hale s warm, dark, inside cupboards, he stumped and he jumped and he thumped and he bumped, and he pranced and he danced, and he banged and he clanged, and he hit and he bit, and he leaped and he creeped, and he prowled and he howled, and he hopped and he dropped, and he cried and he sighed, and he crawled and he bawled, and he stepped and he lepped, and he danced hornpipes where he shouldn t, and the hale felt most unhappy indeed. (ave you forgotten the suspenders?) o he said to the tute ish, his man is very nubbly, and besides he is making me hiccup. hat shall do? ell him to come out, said the tute ish. o the hale called down his own throat to the shipwrecked ariner, ome out and behave yourself. ve got the hiccups. ay, nay! said the ariner. ot so, but far otherwise. ake me to my natal-shore and the white-cliffs-of-lbion, and ll think about it. nd he began to dance more than ever. ou had better take him home, said the tute ish to the hale. ought to have warned you that he is a man of infinite-resource-andsagacity. uffin ooks age 4 of 14

5 ust o tories y udyard ipling o the hale swam and swam and swam, with both flippers and his tail, as hard as he could for the hiccups; and at last he saw the ariner s natal-shore and the white-cliffs-of-lbion, and he rushed half-way up the beach, and opened his mouth wide and wide and wide, and said, hange here for inchester, shuelot, ashua, eene, and stations on the itchburg oad; and just as he said itch the ariner walked out of his mouth. ut while the hale had been swimming, the ariner, who was indeed a person of infiniteresource-and-sagacity, had taken his jack-knife and cut up the raft into a little square grating all running criss-cross, and he had tied it firm with his suspenders (now, you know why you were not to forget the suspenders!), and he dragged that grating good and tight into the hale s throat, and there it stuck! hen he recited the following loka, which, as you have not heard it, will now proceed to relate y means of a grating have stopped your ating. or the ariner he was also an i-ber-ni-an. nd he stepped out on the shingle, and went home to his mother, who had given him leave to trail his toes in the water; and he married and lived happily ever afterward. o did the hale. ut from that day on, the grating in his throat, which he could neither cough up nor swallow down, prevented him eating anything except very, very small fish; and that is the reason why whales nowadays never eat men or boys or little girls. he small tute ish went and hid himself in the mud under the oor-sills of the quator. e was afraid that the hale might be angry with him. he ailor took the jack-knife home. e was wearing the blue canvas breeches when he walked out on the shingle. he suspenders were left behind, you see, to tie the grating with; and that is the end of that tale. hen the cabin port-holes are dark and green ecause of the seas outside; hen the ship goes wop (with a wiggle between) nd the steward falls into the soup-tureen, nd the trunks begin to slide; hen ursey lies on the floor in a heap, nd ummy tells you to let her sleep, nd you aren t waked or washed or dressed, hy, then you will know (if you haven t guessed) ou re ifty orth and orty est! uffin ooks age 5 of 14
