'Come down to the kitchen, ' said Polly, 'and I will show you.' She led the wolf down to the kitchen. There on the table was a delicious looking pie. 'Have a slice?' said Polly. 'Now, ' said Polly, after the third helping, 'what about me?' 'Sorry, ' said the wolf, 'I'm too full of pie. I'll come back another day to deal with you.'
