THE RAT, THE DORMOUSE AND THE ROBIN
" You don't see at all! " cried the rat. " You weren't in the trap at all, and you know you weren't. And how could I let you out if I was in the trap? "
" Well, if you were not in the trap, who was then? " asked the robin slyly.
The rat grew angrier and angrier. " As you are so foolish, robin, I will show you what happened! " he said. " Now, hold the dormouse for me a moment. That's right. Now see—I was in the trap like this . . . and . . ."
Click! The robin leant forward and jerked the rod. The door fell shut. The rat flashed round at once. The robin nodded his head at him. :' Go on, go on," he said. " You were in the trap—and the door shut. . . what happened next? "
" The dormouse came along and opened the trap," said the rat. " I'll show you—now where's that dormouse? You said you would hold him for me."
" No, I didn't," said the robin, nicking his tail cheekily.
