THE RAT, THE DORMOUSE AND THE ROBIN
" I can't show you if the dormouse doesn't come," said the rat in a rage, and he shook the cage with his paws. " You come and lift up this rod as the dormouse did, and I'll show you how I got out."
" Yes—and you would show me how you caught the poor dormouse —and you would catch me instead! " carolled the robin. " No thank you, dear, clever rat! "
And off went the robin to visit his friend the dormouse, to tell him what had happened. How the two friends chuckled when they thought of the rat in the trap once more!
He stayed there till the next day, and then the farmer found him. That was the end of Mister Rat, and nobody was sorry. Cruelty and wickedness are no use in the world, are they!
Click ! The robin leant forward and jerked the rod. The door fell shut.
