Lion and the Mouse

posted in Lion, Mouse |

ONCE WHEN a Lion was asleep a little Mouse began running up and down upon him. This soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow the mouse.”Pardon, O King,” cried the little Mouse: “forgive me this time, I shall never forget it: who knows but what I may be able to do you a turn some of these days?”

The Lion thought this idea of the Mouse being able to help him so funny, that he lifted up his paw and let him go.

Some time after, the Lion was caught in a trap. The hunters who caught him wanted to carry him alive to the King. So they the Lion to a tree while they went in search of a waggon to carry him on.

Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight which the Lion was in, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Animals.

“Was I not right?” said the little Mouse.
