The Mouse and the Lion
LION: Thank you, thank you little mouse, I did not believe you when you said you could repay my kindness. Roar! MOUSE: Squeak, squeak! (LION and MOUSE face front with arms around each other)
The Hare and the Tortoise
BOTH: (Say together) And the moral of the story is: A kindness is never wasted, everyone has need of each other! HARE: Here I come, I’ve made it, I’ve won! (Hare looks around to Mr Fox and TORTOISE and is astonished) I can’t believe it, you’re here, you beat me, how on earth did you do it Tortoise? (TORTOISE shrugs – Pause. HARE and TORTOISE move to the front arms around each other.) BOTH: (Say moral together) And the moral of this tale is: You can be more successful by doing things slowly and steadily, than by acting quickly and carelessly.
The Fox and the Goat
GOAT: (Shouting) You can’t just leave me, help, help, someone help me. Well at least I have got water to drink it could be worse (forlorn with his head down) BOTH: (Both come forward arms around each other and say together) And the moral of the story is: “Always look before you leap”
