The Lion and the Mouse
One day a lion was waken from his afternoon nap by a group of mice scurrying
all about him. Swat! went his huge paw upon one the little creatures. The
mouse pleaded for mercy from the stately beast. The lion took compassion
upon the tiny mouse and released him.
A few days later, the lion became trapped in a hunter's net. His roars made
the whole forest tremble. The little mouse, whose life was spared,
approached the lion in the snare and used his sharp little teeth to gnaw the
strong ropes until the lion was free.
