The big bad wolf gobbled up the little lamb so fast that a bone got stuck in his throat. He was feeling very sorry for himself until he met a heron with a long, long beak.
"Ah, Mr. Heron," he gasped. I'll give you a big reward if you reach down my throat and pull out this bone."
"How much?" said the heron, suspiciously. "Oh, lots and lots," croaked the wolf. So the heron put his head down the wolf's throat and pulled it out.
"Pay up," said the heron. The wolf looked surprised. "You should be happy I didn't bite your head off when it was in my mouth!"
