The Tiny Blue Tit Who Wanted To Be A Titan Blue Tit In Jack’s Beanstalk Tree

In one of the branches in Jack’s beanstalk there, there lived a tiny blue tit, who spent his days watching the world go by a bit as he sit. All he ever wanted to be, was a bird of prey, a hot air balloon or a hand – glider, flying with zero gravity from Jack’s beanstalk tree. Although the blue tit studied aviation in a flight manual, he quickly found out that his wings soon got tired and quite frankly, he’d be better off as a trout.  The tiny blue tit who wanted to be a titan looked around the beanstalk to see what else was flying around – he looked so hard, he fell onto the ground ! There was a ladybird, a grasshopper and a frog – but when the tiny blue tit imitated them, he slipped and landed on a log in the bog. As he glanced upwards into the sky, he saw some eagles flying by. He liked the look of their aeronautical flight path high and decided to give it a try. He huffed and puffed with all his might, but still the blue tit wasn’t that light and he never really took off in flight out of sight. He flapped his wings and took a deep breath – but no amount of huffing and puffing helped him take off. He only lost a feather or two and a bit of fluff. He picked up some worms – to see if that helped at all, but he ate so many, he flopped onto the garden wall. Navigating the hedgerow turned out to be harder still – when he veered left, he bumped into the windowsill ! He took a strong – pill, it only made him ill. Although he exercised daily and his muscles grew and grew – but still he wobbled as over the garden he flew. He narrowly missed three grasshoppers as the wind blew. Soon, his flapping was the talk of the birds, it was the strangest flight they had seen or ever heard. Being a blue tit wasn’t that great – when he took off, he crash landed onto the gate !
