5 Gentle Monster of the Deep The green sea turtle could be called the gentle monster of the deep. It has lived on earth for a long, long time. The meat of this turtle makes excellent soup. So many green turtles have been caught for food that they are now an endangered species. Endangered species are animals in danger of becoming extinct. This means that someday soon they may no longer exist on earth. Some people are working hard to save the sea turtle by studying its life cycle. The female turtle returns to the same beach every 2–3 years. She digs a nest with her flippers and lays a clutch of 100 eggs or more. Then she buries the eggs and returns to the sea. In about two months the baby turtles hatch. The turtle uses a special tooth on its nose to break out of its shell. After hatching, the turtles work together to climb out of the nest and begin a short but dangerous journey to the ocean. The turtles must hurry to the ocean because sea gulls try to catch them. In the ocean more dangers await them. The turtles must escape many large fish. The turtles then disappear for a year or more. Experts aren't sure what happens at this time. In about two years, when the turtles are large enough to protect themselves, they can be seen again in the sea. Volunteer groups now watch and protect turtle nests. They want to make sure that as many turtles as possible return to their life in the sea.

11 The Frog Prince Part 1 A long time ago, there lived a young princess more beautiful than the sun. Every day, she played in the forest that surrounded her family’s royal palace. Her favorite thing in the world was a tiny golden ball given to her by her father, the king. However, one day, as she sat on the side of a deep well, the princess dropped the ball. It floated down through the cold, dark water and disappeared. The princess began to cry. “Don’t be sad, Princess,” said a deep, little voice. The princess turned and saw an ugly green frog sitting on the well beside her. The frog had wet gray lips and a large wart on his head. “I would be happy to fetch your golden ball, Princess,” the frog croaked, “if you promise to be my friend and let me come live with you in the palace!”

12 The Frog Prince Part 2 The princess was quite surprised to see a talking frog, so she wasn’t thinking very clearly. She said, “all right,” without really considering what the frog had proposed. The frog eagerly plopped into the well like a pebble that had been tossed in to it. He swam down, down through the dark water and then came back up with the tiny golden ball in his mouth. The princess was amazed. She thanked the frog, took the golden ball, and went on her way. The frog tried to follow after her, but he couldn’t hop fast enough and so was left behind. The next day, as the princess was dining with the king, she heard a little knock on the door. When she opened it, there at her feet was the ugly green frog. “Here I am!” the frog croaked. The princess screamed and shut the door before the frog could come in. When her father asked her what was wrong, she told him about the frog and how he had returned her golden ball to her. Just then, there was another knock on the door. From the other side came a deep, little voice, saying, “You promised me that I could live with you and you would be my friend!” “Is that true?” asked the King. The princess nodded quietly. The King thought for a moment and then spoke in a very strong voice. “A promise is a promise,” he said sternly.

13 The Frog Prince Part 3 The princess slowly opened the door, and the ugly frog hopped in. “I’m hungry!” he croaked. “Let me sit on the table beside you and share your food!” The princess slowly lifted the frog on to the table, where he nibbled the food on her plate. “Now take me to your room so I can take a nap!” The princess slowly took the frog to her room. “Now place me on your favorite pillow!” croaked the frog. The princess slowly put the frog on her pillow, where he left little muddy footprints. Suddenly, the princess began to cry. The ugly frog hopped a little closer to her. “I know I’m ugly, Princess,” he croaked. “Just take me back to the well, and you’ll never have to bother with me again.” “I’m sorry,” wept the princess. “I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings, and you’re really very thoughtful – for a frog. I made a promise to you, and I want to keep it. It’s the right thing to do.” The princess stopped crying, leaned over, and gently kissed the frog on his little green head. Suddenly, the room was filled with sparkling starlight, and the ugly little frog grew into a tall, handsome young prince. “Don’t be frightened, Princess,” said the prince, “I was never really a frog. I was waiting for the day when I would be touched by true beauty. The kind of beauty that comes from inside.”
