The Chicken In The Library
A librarian was working on afternoon when she noticed a chicken had come into the library and was patiently waiting in front of the check out desk. When the chicken saw it had the librarian’s attention, it squawked, “Book, book, book, BOOK!”
Puzzled, the librarian looked at the chicken. But the chicken kept squawking, “Book, book, book, BOOK!”
Finally, she put a couple of books down in front of the chicken. The chicken quickly grabbed them and disappeared.
The next day, the librarian was disturbed by the same chicken, who put the previous day’s pile of books down on the desk and squawked, “Book, book, book, BOOK!”
The librarian shook her head, wondering what the chicken was doing with the books, but eventually found some more books for the chicken. The chicken took the books and left.
The next day, the librarian was once again disturbed by the chicken, who squawked, “Book, book, book, BOOK!”
By now, the librarian’s curiosity has gotten the better of her, so she put a pile of books in front of the chicken. When the chicken left with the books, the librarian followed the bird. She followed it through the parking lot, down the street, and into a large park.
She followed the chicken into a small grove of trees, trying to keep as quiet as possible. Beyond the trees, there was a small marsh. The chicken stopped at the water’s edge and looked down. The librarian, now really curious, hurried over and saw small frog next to the chicken. The frog was examining each book, one at a time.
The librarian crept even closer, just in time to hear the frog say: “Read it, read it, read it!”
