        THE ANIMALS  

   A mouse was resting at the foot of a tree.

    Suddenly a fruit fell off on his head.

    The mouse ran and found his friend the rabbit and said:

    - I was there, and a branch fell off over me, It almost killed me.

    The rabbit ran so scared, found the squirrel and said:

    -Over there, a moment ago, a tree has fallen off over the mouse!

    The squirrel ran, found the pig and said:

    -Don´t go around there, sparks are falling!

    The pig found the goat and said:

    -Run, run, an earthquake is happening around there!

    So, all the scared animals ran one after another as if they were crazy. They believed that the world was sinking.
