Not So True Stories

& Unreasonable Ryhmes

written and illustrated by Carin Berger

Spring 2004




Wiley Croc and

Goldie Fish were

very best of friends

until the sad and bitter day

with which this story ends.


While swimming slowly in the swamp

Old Wiley gave a yawn

He sucked poor Goldie

in his mouth

and GULP!

His friend was gone.
