There Was an Old Sailor

We rated this book:


A krill is a type of spider that has long ears and short legs and lives in water. An old sailor swallowed it. Then he swallowed a jellyfish. If I ate some sea animals I would throw up. And I wouldn’t eat them; I would eat healthy things. The sailor doesn’t look scary and he doesn’t look nice, he looks handsome but he just swallows unhealthy things. I ate fish sticks, and they are good. But they aren’t even alive. They are dead, so we can eat them. But not the sea animals, because they are alive! I ate a squid once that was cut up and little and it was dead. That is a tadpole, but it is called a ray. But why is he eating it? It’s too big for him! Will it go down his beard? I would eat a seal without a head or teeth or eyes or tail. It is pitch dark with the shark so it is dark. Did you ever eat a whale? Neither did I! The whale swallowed this tadpole and the fish swallowed the squid and the jellyfish swallowed the krill and the seal – the shark swallowed the seal and the whale went – ‘blmmp’ – to get it out. It burped. This book has fun sea animals but I wouldn’t eat them if they were alive.
