“Who are you going to invite?” Mummy lion asked.
“Tell me about it, she wants to go to the shops every weekend now.”
When Droo opened his eyes he saw that some people from the zoo were standing near him. Droo smiled. He was going to get a ride back home. It was time for dinner.
Droo immediately went out. The air smelled fresher outside the cage. He decided to take a quick stroll. But he quickly wolfed down his lunch before starting his adventure.

The fable in literature
In the oldest versions, a lion threatens a mouse that wakes him from sleep. The mouse begs forgiveness and makes the point that such unworthy prey would bring the lion no honour. The lion then agrees and sets the mouse free. Later, the lion is netted by hunters. Hearing it roaring, the mouse remembers its clemency and frees it by gnawing through the ropes. The moral of the story is that mercy brings its reward and that there is no being so small that it cannot help a greater. Later English versions reinforce this by having the mouse promise to return the lion’s favor, to its sceptical amusement.
The lion was livid with rage.He said, “Bring him here and I will teach him a lesson.” But the hare craftily persuaded him to go to the place where the other lion lived. He guided the lion to the well and asked him to look inside. The foolish lion looked at his own reflection and thinking it was his competitor, jumped inside, and that was his end. All the animals rejoiced at the intelligence of the hare.
MORAL: INTELLIGENCE IS SUPERIOR THEN PHYSICAL STRENGTH.
