Frogs live as happy as could be in a marshy swamp that just suited them, they went splashing around the car-ing for no and no concern with them. But some of them thought that this was not true that they should have a king and a good constitution, they decided to send a petition to Jupiter to give them what they wanted.
“Mighty Jove,” they cried, “send us a king to reign over us and keep us working.” Jove laughed at their croaking, and threw in the marsh a great newspaper, which came downrplashto Marsh . Frogs were frightened out of their lives by the commotion in their midst, and all rushed to the bank to watch the horrible monster, but AF-ter a while, see that it does not move, one or two of the boldest of them ventured to the newspaper, and even dared to touch it, it still does not move. Then the greatest hero of the frog jumped onto the log and started dancing on him and then all the frogs came and did the same, and frogs for a while going about their business every day without paying any attention to their new King Log lying in their midst. But it does not suit them, so they sent a petition to Jupiter, and said: “We want a real king, who will really rule over us.
“But Zeus is angry, so he sent among them a big Stork that soon set to work to swallow everything. Then the Frogs repented too late. Better no rule than cruel rule.
