The Full Gull

penguin3.jpg

The full gull had eaten so many clams, that he was completely full up. You’d never seen such a fed up gull – as the gull who got belly ache when he was full ! He grimaced rather a lot – and pulled a face like a lobster pot. The full gull used to think life was wonderful, but now he thought it was a load of bull ! His eyes were really bigger than his belly – his feet were covered in wet sand and he thought he should buy a pair of wellies ! The full gull was fuller than ever, when there were more clams, because of the weather. The full gull cracked their shell, on the pebbles by the wishing well. He could hear the full gull craw, as he dropped another clam on the floor !
