Sample Text
Lion: Because sometimes you need to listen to someone else, take their advice
Mouse: However small they are! And that’s exactly what he did!
Lion: Yes, I listened
Teacher: And then was ‘big’ enough to act on that advice! See, sometimes you can become big by the smallest actions!
Pupil 2: (To Lion) So you let the mouse go?
Lion: That’s right! Was I the champ? Or was I the champ?
Mouse: (Coughing) Eh hem! Small matter of what I said to you?
Lion: Ah yes! You mean, helping me out at some future event
Mouse: When you, my large friend, might actually need me!
Pupil 1: (To Lion) And did you? I mean, need your wee friend?
Lion: Oh, I most certainly did! I wouldn’t be standing here talking to you today if I hadn’t let my rodent friend here go!
Narrator: So, what happened?
Lion: I got caught by hunters, is what happened! Soon after bidding farewell to Mouse here, I managed to fall into a trap and get all tied up in knots!
Mouse: (Laughing) How very careless of you!
Lion: No laughing matter, I can assure you! If you, Mouse, hadn’t come along and rescued me
Pupil 2: (Gasping) What? You, a mighty lion, rescued by a mini mouse?
Lion: Indeed. And I’m not ashamed to admit it.
Teacher: Which makes you an even bigger, grander lion in my opinion!
Pupil 1: And mine!
Pupil 2: (Spluttering) But, but, wasn’t it just the tiniest bit humiliating – being rescued by a mere mouse?
Mouse: (Sighing) Oh dear! I can see we might just have to spell this one out!
