Mr. Crocodile and Miss Plover
Every day after his big meal, Mr. Crocodile would open his mouth to take a nice nap. Exactly at this time, Miss Plover would fly into his mouth to look for food as well as to clean up his teeth.
Mr. Crocodile hated all kinds of animals. He thought they were annoying. One day, Mr. Crocodile could not tolerate Miss Plover anymore. He roared, “ Can ‘t you see I ‘m sleeping? Go away! Don ‘t disturb me and don ‘t come back again! ” Miss Plover was terrified. She flew away immediately. She was Mr. Crocodile ‘s dentist no more.
Since then, everyday after his meals, Mr. Crocodile could enjoy his moment of peace. He kept on eating, drinking and sleeping peacefully. A month later, his teeth began to ache. His teeth were rotten and he was suffering from a very bad toothache. He felt miserable for a whole week.
One day Miss Plover happened to fly by the river. She saw how miserable Mr. Crocodile was and felt sympathetic. She flew in front of him and asked if he would let her help to relief his pain. Mr. Crocodile was too happy to have someone to help him. So, Miss Plover spent a whole afternoon working hard – cleaning and scrubbing until Mr. Crocodile ‘s teeth did not hurt anymore.
Feeling much better, Mr. Crocodile was thankful for Miss Plover ‘s help. He was ashamed of his bad behaviour earlier. He apologized to Miss Plover immediately.
Since then, the two became good friends and would meet up with each other everyday after meals.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a children's book written by L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W.W. Denslow. It was originally published by the George M. Hill Company in Chicago in 1900,and has since been reprinted countless times, sometimes under the name The Wizard of Oz.The story chronicles the adventures of a girl named Dorothy in the Land of Oz.
The Wizard tries to persuade the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion that what they lack are not brains or a heart or courage, but faith in themselves. But he still agrees to meet each of them and to give them (without their knowledge) a placebo which brings out the qualities they had all along. In order to help Dorothy and Toto get home, the Wizard realizes that he will have to take them home with him in a new balloon which he and Dorothy fashion from green silk. Revealing himself to the people of the Emerald City one last time, the Wizard appoints the Scarecrow, by virtue of his brains, to rule in his stead. Dorothy chases Toto after he runs after a kitten in the crowd, and before she can make it back to the balloon the ropes break, leaving the Wizard to rise and float away alone.
Dorothy turns to the Winged Monkeys to carry her and Toto home, but they cannot cross the desert surrounding Oz. The citizens of the Emerald City advise that Glinda, the Good Witch of the South, may be able to send Dorothy and Toto home. They, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion journey to Glinda's palace in the Quadling Country. Together they escape the Fighting Trees, dodge the Hammerheads, and tread carefully through the China Country. The Cowardly Lion kills a giant spider which is terrorizing the animals in a forest, and he agrees to return there to rule them after Dorothy returns to Kansas. Dorothy uses her third wish to fly over the Hammerheads' mountain.Source(s): ｍｅ
