This great story was written by P. R. Ramachander,
a wonderful storyteller from Bangalore, India.

There was a big lake. In that lake a Crocodile used to live with his wife. By the side of the lake was a big mango tree. On that tree one monkey called Chathura used to live. Mango season came.

The mango tree was full of mangos. The monkey used to eat lots of sweet mangos.

One day, the crocodile swam near the tree and asked Chathura, “I see you are eating something. Can you also give me one?”

Chathura happily plucked two mangos and dropped them into the water. The crocodile ate them and liked them. From then on, daily Chathura gave a few mangos to the crocodile.

One day the crocodile took a few mangos to his wife who liked them very much. She asked the crocodile, “You say that the monkey on the tree eats lot of this sweet fruit. I am sure his brain will be very sweet. I would like to eat the monkey’s brain."

    I like brains too. Especially when they are sweet like mangos.

  2. Storyteller Madison (8) added to the children's story:

    Smart monkey. Don't share with anyone who wants to kill you.

    After the crocodile got hit by the stone, he got a big head ache and he was very sad. He was sad because he couldn't get mangos anymore. He was sad because he lost his monkey friend and he was sad because he had to go home to his wife brainless.

    When he got home, the crocodile wife was very hungry and she got very angry when she saw that the crocodile had no monkey brains with him. So she said "foolish crocodile! you can not even bring me a monkey brain. I do not want to be your wife anymore, and then she left."

  3. Storyteller Brianna (10) added to the children's story:

    The crocodile's wife went to the monkey, "I understand that my husband told you that I wanted to eat your brains. I do not eat brains. My husband is a liar. A big fat crocodile liar. I want to be your friend"

    But the monkey had learned his lesson with crocodiles and did not want to come down and play in the water with mrs. crocodile. He stayed in the mango tree where it was safe.

    Eventually mrs. crocodile got tired of waiting for the monkey to come down from the tree and swam away. And the monkey lived happily, crocodile free.
