Fable Title

The Lion and the Mouse




In this fable, a lion was sleeping and a mouse decided to go on it and explore it. When the lion woke up, he caught the mouse in its claws. The mouse said he will help the lion out someday if he let the mouse go. The mouse ended up escaping. The next day, the mouse noticed the lion was caught by some hunters so the mouse decided to help the lion get away by nibbling on the rope. The lion apologized to the mouse.


Always help out others in need, no matter what. Also, never judge a book by its cover (even the smallest could be the mightiest).

Analyze Author Craft

This fable was very simple for children to read and enjoy. It involved animals, a problem, resolution, and moral. It included quotes as well to make the animals act like humans. It was very clear to read and the events were laid out perfectly.

Favorite Part

My favorite part of this fable is when the mouse helped out the lion. The lion was mean to the mouse and judged the mouse by its side, yet the mouse kept his promise on helping the lion. He pushed everything the lion said and did to him away to help out the lion. It shows the mouse has a big heart, even though she has a small body. I also appreciated how the lion apologized.
