The Ogre and King Arthur

Here is another improvised bed time story for my kids. King Arthur was called to save a village from an evil Ogre.  (...not like Shrek)... Arthur could not overpower the huge beast and was forced to retreat.  He found a narrow bridge which he realized could not hold the weight of the Ogre. Using his wits he taunted the monster by dancing like a chicken until the Ogre lost his evil temper and ran across the bridge.  Half way across the bridge collapsed and Ogre fell into the river and was carried out to sea and away for the village forever.  Not the greatest story but trying to teach the kids what happens when you lose your temper.  Also, that fighting my not always be the best option.  The chicken dancing seemed to be the favorite part for them...anyway...
