Two prawns, Harry and Christian were walking along the ocean floor when suddenly "POOF!" Out jumped a Cod.  Harry and Christian were startled but the Cod said, "don't be frightened, I am a magic Cod, I can grant you a wish.  I can turn you into any other sea creature that you want to be."

Harry was really excited and said, "I would like to be a Shark, because everybody respects a shark and I will be the boss of the ocean."

Suddenly Harry turns into a Shark and swims off.  Turning to Christian, the Magic Cod says, "What about you Christian, what would you like to be?"

Christian shrugged his shoulders and said, "I'm happy being a prawn thanks all the same."  So the Magic Cod left and Christian scuttled off home.

As the months went by Harry was getting tired of being a Shark as nobody liked him and all the other sea creatures were scared of him so he spent months searching for the Magic Cod so he could be released from his spell.

Suddenly, POOF! the Magic Cod appeared before him.  "Please Magic Cod Harry pleaded, please turn me back into a prawn.  Harry explained why he hated being a Shark so, the Magic Cod turns him back into a Prawn.

Prawns, sharks and christian

Harry was excited and the first thing he wanted to do was go and see his old friend Christian. Harry knocked on Christian's door.  "Who's there," cried Christian.

"It's me, Harry your old friend"

"Go away," replied Christian. "You're a Shark, if I open the door you will eat me."

"No, no," said Harry.

"I'm a Prawn again Christian.""
