The Lion and the Mouse

Once upon a time when a Lion was asleep a little Mouse began
running up and down upon him. This soon woke up the Lion, who
placed his huge paw upon the Mouse. The Lion opened his big
jaws to swallow her.
“Pardon, O King,” cried the little Mouse: “If you forgive me this
time, I shall never forget it. Who knows, maybe I will be able to
help you one of these days?”
The Lion thought this idea of the little Mouse being able to help
him was very funny. So he lifted up his paw and let her go.
Some time after the Lion was caught in a trap. The hunters tied
him to a tree and went in search of a wagon to carry him on.
Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by. When the Mouse
saw the Lion tied up with ropes, she went up to him and soon
chewed through the ropes that held the King of the Beasts.
“Was I not right?” said the little Mouse. “Little friends can
sometimes be very big friends indeed.”
