3.41 The Lion and the Mouse

Once when a lion was asleep, a little mouse began running up and down on him; this soon wakened the lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him.

"Pardon, O King," cried the little mouse, "forgive me this time, I shall never forget your favor. Who knows, I may be able to help you one of these days."

The lion was so tickled at the idea of the mouse being able to help him, that he lifted up his paw and let him go.

A few days later, a few hunters caught the lion and tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on.

Just then the little mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight of the lion, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the king of the animals.
