Grandma Tildy -- No Elephants!

Grandma Tildy lived all alone. She worked hard every day. She had no time to play. One day a man came to her house. He was selling pets. “Would you like to buy a canary bird?” asked the man. “Very well,” said Grandma Tildy. “But no elephants!” Grandma Tildy was cooking stew. The bird wanted to help. So he sang a song for her. It made Grandma Tildy happy. That night they sat down to eat the stew together. And it tasted better than ever before.
