The Lion and the Grateful Mouse

The Lion and the Grateful Mouse:


A lion was preparing to eat a mouse it had just caught.

'Let me go,' the mouse begged him, 'sooner or later you may need my help.'

The king of the forest found this idea so ridiculous that he laughed aloud, but he let the little mouse go anyway.

Some time later, the lion was trapped in a net which had been set down by the hunters. Then along came the mouse that chewed the netting and freed him.

'As you can see,' said the mouse, 'even the mighty sometimes need the help of the weak.'
