FOOLS LOSE EVER
                Once upon a time there lived two foolish cats. Once they found a cake, which is round and hot. They started quarrelling for the cake. They failed to share it equally. So they went to a monkey to get the matter settled.
                The monkey was very clever and it wished to have the cake by making the two cats fool. It wanted to eat the whole cake. It intentionally divided the cake into two unequal parts. It bit the larger piece. It became very small. Then it bit the other piece saying that it was large. It happened many times.
The monkey ate all the cake piece by piece. Nothing of the cake was left for the cats. They became sad and went away disappointed.

THE WISE MOUSE
                Long ago in a large grey house there lived a small grey mouse. It was old but wise. In the same house along with the mouse lived a black cat. The cat tried many a time to catch the mouse but failed to do that.
                One day the mouse went into the kitchen. Unfortunately it met with the cat. The cat felt happy. It thought of a good plan to catch the mouse to make its dream come true. It invited the mouse for dinner outside the house. The mouse accepted the invitation of the cat.

                The mouse had some thought before it went to the dinner. It predicted some danger from the cat. It asked the cat to wait until he put on Red Sunday coat. It crept into a hole. The foolish cat waited outside the hole. The mouse didn’t turn up.
