A lion asleep --- a mouse jumps over his body --- caught --- begs for mercy --- the lion lets him go --- the lion caught in a hunter’s net --- roars --- mouse hears the roar --- gnaws the ropes --- sets the lion free --- Moral.
There lived a lion in a certain jungle. And a mouse lived in a hole nearby. One day, the lion was fast asleep under the shade of a tree. The mouse climbed over his body and began to run about. The lion woke up full of great anger. He was going to kill it. But it begged for mercy. And he let it go.
A few days later, the lion was caught in a hunter’s trap. He roared very furiously. The mouse heard the roar and ran to the spot. Its heart was filled with pity to see him in trouble. At once it began to gnaw the ropes. Before long, the lion was free once again.
Moral: Even a little creature may be of great help sometimes.
