Excerpt
Excerpt: In the sea, once upon a time, O my Best Beloved, there was a Whale, and he ate fishes. He ate the starfish and the garfish, and the crab and the dab, and the plaice and the dace, and the skate and his mate, and the mackereel and the pickereel, and the really truly twirlywhirly eel. All the fishes he could find in all the sea he ate with his mouth--so! Till at last there was only one small fish left in all the sea, and he was a small ?Stute Fish, and he swam a little behind the Whale?s right ear, so as to be out of harm?s way. Then the Whale stood up on his tail and said, ?I?m hungry.? And the small ?Stute Fish said in a small ?stute voice, ?Noble and generous Cetacean, have you ever tasted Man??
