It was a hot day in the forest. Sheru the lion ate a big meal. He was very tired. He went to sleep under a shady tree.
Neetu the mouse was playing happily in the forest. He jumped about here and there. He saw Sheru's tail and ran up the tail. Sheru did not wake up. Neetu became a little bold. He wanted to have some fun. He ran up Sheru's back. Sheru still didn't get up. Oh, this was great fun!
Neetu became even more bold and danced on Sheru's head. Sheru got up with a loud roar. He was very angry. He caught Neetu with his paws.
Neetu was very scared. He said in a small voice, "King Sheru, I am sorry. Please don't eat me. I was only playing. Please let me go. I shall always be your friend. Maybe one day I can help you."
