●本編

A Cow came to the pond to drink some water.
He splashed heavily into the water. 
He crushed a young Frog into the mud.

The old Frog suddenly noticed the little one was gone.
She asked the little Frog's brothers and sisters what happened to him.

"A great big monster," said one of them, "stepped on little brother with one of his huge feet!"

"How big was he?" said the old Frog.
She started to puff herself up with air.
" Was he as big as this?" 
“Oh, much bigger!" they cried.

The old Frog puffed up more.

“He could not have been bigger than this," she said. 

But the little Frogs all declared that the monster was much, much bigger.
So the old Frog kept puffing herself up, until she suddenly....... burst into pieces

Lesson: Do not attempt the impossible.
