on the far away island of Salamah Sand. Yertle the turtle was king of the pond and I settled pond. It was clean. It was neat. The water was warm and there was plenty to eat. The turtles had everything turtles might need, and they were all happy, quite happy. Indeed they were, until Yertle king of them all decided. The kingdom, he ruled was too small. I'm ruler, said Yertle. Of all that I see, but I don't see enough. That's the trouble with me. With this stone for a throne, I looked down on my pond, But I cannot look down on the places beyond this throne that I sit on is too too low down. It ought to be higher, he said with a frown. If I could sit high, how much greater I'd be, what a king. I'd be ruler of all that I see. So Yertle the Turtle king lifted his hand, and Yertle the turtle king gave a command. He ordered nine turtles to swim to his stone, and using these turtles, he built a new throne. He made each turtle stand on one another's back, and he piled them all up in a nine Turtle stack and then your little climbed up. He sat down on the pile. What a wonderful view he could see most a mile.
