"Today is a wonderful day!" said Piggy Zee. "I'm so happy I could ?y up, up, up to the sky, wheeeee!" She was soaring high on a quaint little swing. Piggy was having great fun playing and giggling. She jumped o? the tree branch into the soft, soft grass; it gave her such a thrill, but there was something little Piggy did not see–Tubal the eagle.

Tubal was very hungry and looking for his evening meal. As he flew over the forest, his sharp eyes caught sight of a tasty little morsel, which was Piggy Zee.

Now Wuddy the doe saw that Piggy Zee was about to be Tubal's dinner and screamed, "RUN, PIGGY!"

Everyone knew that Tubal was strong and swift, especially when he was hungry.

Poor little Piggy Zee, she was so afraid; her heart pounded very fast when she saw Tubal getting closer and closer. Now on the shore, by the lake, Wuddy the doe and others were watching and yelling at Tubal, saying, "NO, NO, go away, Tubal! Leave little Piggy alone!"

But Tubal paid them no mind; he was focused on his catch. Dommi the duck quacked to the others nearby, "Let's help little Piggy Zee. She's our friend, and she's in big trouble."

Everyone began to throw stones and sticks at Tubal, trying to run him away, except, that is, Prissy Lena, who said, "Huh! It's not my problem. I'll tear one of my beautiful feathers, then what? I'll look a mess!"

"WHAT?" exclaimed Ms. Pootie. "Little Piggy Zee may be eaten, and you're worried about your dumb old feathers? How sel?sh of you, Prissy Lena."

"Say what you like, I'm not going to risk my good looks for that little piglet." Ms. Pootie was very angry and disappointed with Prissy, and so were the others, but everyone kept throwing stones and sticks at Tubal.

Tubal said to them, "Hey! Stop hitting me and mind your own business. This is my dinner!"

Prissy Lena began to laugh and laugh. It amused her that little Piggy Zee was being chased and Tubal was so hungry and couldn't catch her. "This is a circus act," she said as tears of laughter rolled down her cheeks.

When Tubal saw Prissy laughing so hard, he got angry and said, "Since I can't catch that piglet, I'll just have to eat PEACOCK for dinnaaaaaaaaaaa, ha ha hahahaha," and then he turned to chase after Prissy Lena!
