Panthawi yina, kunali n’gwena yanjala kwambiri.

Once there was a very hungry crocodile.

Ubushiku bumo kwali Ing’wena yali nensala saana.


Inasakila cakudya mosafulumira ndi mwacetecete. Mosacedwa…

He searched for food slowly and quietly. And then…

Yalefwaya ifyakulya mumutalalila ukwabula ukupanga ichongo. Elyo nomba…


Pow! Ng’wena inagwila!

POW!!! The crocodile strikes!

Wiyu!!! Kucheshuko, Ing’wena yaikata icakulya!


Kucoka apo, njala yinasila ndiponso, anali osangalala.

After that he is no longer hungry, and he is happy.

Panuma yakulya, Ing’wena tayaumfwilepo insala nelyo panono elo yalifye iyasekelela nganshi.


Mpaka akakhalenso ndi njala.

Until he gets hungry again.

Pakafye yaumfwa insala nakabili.
