|One night two frogs found
themselves in a diary. Hopping and jumping around as frogs do they both jumped into a milk
pail half full of milk.
After swimming around for some time they tried to get
out. But the inside of the pail was too slippery and there was nothing on which they could
rest so that they could jump out. One frog thought it was useless trying to swim on and
just gave up hope and sunk and was drowned.
|The other carried on swimming hoping
against hope that something would turn up. He swam and he swam until he began to feel
tired. But by this time the milk which was full of cream had become thick. When the frog
had swum some more the cream had been stirred so much that it became a solid lump of
On this the frog could scramble and rest.
And from it he could easily jump out of the pail into safety.
