Answers

I've seen a lot of strange things in my life, but this was definitely the strangest. A few years ago I was working as a travelling librarian for the summer. Once a week we went to visit a small village in the middle of the country. One day a hen came into the library and asked for three books. I don’t know about you, but I have never seen a talking hen before. I was so surprised I gave her the books. The next week, when we came back, the hen was waiting for us when we arrived. She gave me her books back and asked for some more. This went on for a few weeks. I got curious. Did the hen really read all those books? I decided to follow her. The hen walked out of the village and into a field. In the middle of the field, there was a pond where a frog was waiting for the hen. The hen walked up to the frog and put the books down at his feet, one by one. As she put each book down at his feet, the frog looked up and said I've read it.
