It was too deep and too wide for Iguana to swim across. Iguana dipped a toe in the water. It was very cold.“Oh, dear,” he said, “I want to visit my mother. She will miss me if I can’t see her. We are going to have lunch together. How will I ever cross the river?”He looked up and down the river bank for an answer to his problem. A boatman rowed his boat toward Iguana.  4 The boatman said, “I will take you across the river. I will give you a safe ride. I can handle a boat well. My boat is swift and sure. It can ride the rough waves.”“How much is a ride with you?” Iguana asked.“It will cost you only five dollars,” the boatman replied.“That is a lot of money for one boat ride,” Iguana said. “I do not want to pay so much.”“No one handles a boat on the water as well as I do,” said the boatman. “You should take the ride with me.” 5 Just then Crocodile swam up to the edge of the river. “What’s happening?” he asked, and smiled, showing his sharp teeth.“I want to cross the river to see my dear mother,” Iguana said. “She is waiting to have lunch with me. The boatman wants five dollars for the ride. He says his boat is swift and sure and can handle the rough waves. Five dollars is a lot of money. I don’t know if I should spend that much money.”
