“Would

you

like

to

buy

the

mouse

today?”

the

man

asked

Jack.

“Yes,

I

should,”

said

Jack.

“The

mouse

would

make

my

mother

laugh.

But

I

have

no

money.”

“If

you

give

me

your

cow,”

said

the

man,

“I

will

give

you

the

mouse.”

When

Jack

came

home,

his

mother

said,

“How

much

money

did

you

get

for

the

cow?”

“None

at

all,”

replied

Jack.

“I

got

something

much

better.

Watch

this!”

He

gave

the

harp

to

the

bee

and

then

he

whistled.

The

bee

began

to

play

the

harp,

and

the

mouse

danced.

Jack

and

his

mother

could

not

help

dancing,

too.
