24. The Vegetarian Solution

"I think I catch your drift, Constable!" Albert Clam quickly spoke up. "Of course! Starry Starfish--what do YOU eat?"

"Me?" Starry said with surprise, "I am a VEGETARIAN, of course--so what?"

"You mean," Clam asked, "you don't eat coral Polyps?"

"Coral polyps? YUCK! Not on your life!" Starry said looking a little sick.

"Then, don't you see?" Clam smiled happily. "THAT is the solution to our problem!"

"No, I DON'T see! What ARE you getting at, Albert Clam?" Starry replied defensively.

"Only THIS, you thick starfish you!" Clam said, "We only have to convince the Crown of Thorns Starfish--and all his relatives--to become VEGETARIANS like you and our little coral reef will be SAVED--and their own reef--if there is anything left of it--will come back to life and even FLOURISH!"



  1. Good finale but just for your information: starfish is not a vegetarian, they eat mollusks, clams, oysters, snails, plankton though some supplement their diet with algae. They are actually quite voracious predators.

    You can check Wikipedia for more information.

    Keep writing.

  2. Starry the starfish has "seen the light" and is NOW a vegetarian! TW
