O nce there was a sugar pig who was hung up on a Christmas-tree, with a great many other toys and ornaments. He was quite happy there until the little black doll next to him began to talk.
" Hallo, there, sugar pig! You'd better be careful when the candles are lighted on this tree. That one just below you will melt you, as sure as anything! "
The sugar pig looked down below him in alarm. Sure enough, there was a green candle just beneath him. Goodness, he would certainly melt when that was lighted!
It was a horrid thought for the little sugar pig. He spoke anxiously to the black doll. " Can you reach up and untie the bit of string that binds me to this branch? I must get away from this candle."
The black doll could just reach, and very soon the sugar pig was free. He slipped down from branch to branch until he came to the floor. His legs were stiff, but he soon managed to make them run.
" I shall run right away from this horrid place," said the sugar pig to himself. So he ran out of the room. But almost at once he met the big tabby-cat who lived in the house, and she shot after him.
" Come here, pink mouse! " she mewed. " I'd like to have you for dinner! "
