"What is that noise ?" wondered the mouse as he walked in the jungle. He had heard it a few times already for the past few minutes. It sounded like thunder to him, but the sky was too clear for it to start raining. Out of curiosity, he headed in the direction of the noise. What he saw almost made him run for his life ! A lion was sprawled right in the middle of the clearing. Strangely though, the lion was just lying there, doing absolutely nothing. Then it gave a terrifying roar that made the mouse jump out of his skin. "So that's where the noise is coming from," said the mouse to himself. He crept forward cautiously.

When he saw that he wasn't in any danger, he boldly went forward and started working on the net bolding the lion in. The lion sat quietly as the mouse worked. A big hole was there after a few minutes. The lion crept out of it in embarrassment and thanked the mouse. It loped away quickly and the mouse went on its way.
