English KS1/KS2: Aesop's Fables -15. The Frogs who wanted a King
Even though they have good reason to be happy and content, the frogs decide that they need a king. They ask Jupiter, the King of all the Gods, for a king, and to keep them quiet he sends down a log. For a while the frogs are in awe of their king, but after a while they decide he is too quiet, and doesn’t move enough, to be a king.
Hearing the frogs complaining, and thinking them ungrateful, Jupiter decides to teach them a lesson, and sends down a stork, which starts to eat them. The frogs ask again for help, but have to live with the consequences of their actions.
