LION AND THE MOUSE, THE
Once upon a time, a mouse ran across the face of a sleeping lion and woke the lion up.
The angry lion caught the mouse and was going to eat it.
“Please don’t eat me!” begged the mouse. “If you let me go, one day I will repay you for your kindness.”
This made the lion laugh. “Ha, ha, ha. You can never repay me,” said the lion. “I am big and strong. You are small and weak. But I will let you go just because you made me laugh.”
One day, the lion got caught in a hunter’s net.
The lion began to roar in anger.
The mouse heard the lion’s roar and ran to help.
The mouse gnawed a hole in the hunter’s net and set the lion free.
“There!” said the mouse. “You laughed at me when I said I would repay you, but now you see that even a mouse can help a lion.”
The lion was very glad.
The mouse was very proud.
