Fetch Me Some Fish

Peter, Pat and Penny puffin lived on the cliffs of northwestern Scotland. All day long they flew back and forth from the cliffs to the sea.

Penny yawned and stroked her feathers. “I'm tired of all this flying back and forth. From now on I want each of you to bring me back some fish. I'm the big sister and don't forget that.”

Peter and Pat didn't like this idea. Why should they do all the work? So they ignored Penny. In the morning at dawn's first light, they flew down to the sea.

Penny shouted, “Bring me back some fish.”

Peter and Pat dove into the sea and each caught a few fish. Gobbling them down, Pat said, “I'm not going to catch any fish for Penny. She's lazy. She can come and catch her own.” Pat finished gobbling her fish and flew off to catch more.

Peter and Pat stood on the beach with fish dangling from their mouths. Penny flew down and landed next to them. “Well? Where's my fish? You made me fly all the way down here from the cliff.”

Peter flew into the sky and headed for the sea. Pat swallowed her fish. “There are plenty of fish in the sea, Penny. You can go and catch your own.” Pat flew away to join her brother.

Penny stood and stood, not knowing what to do. She saw the waves rolling around her feet. Her tummy rumbled. “I suppose I'll have to catch my own then.” And she did.
