THE STORY OF MISS MOPPET
This is the Mouse peeping out behind the cupboard, and making fun of Miss Moppet.
He is not afraid of a kitten.
This is Miss Moppet jumping just too late; she misses the Mouse and hits her own head.
She thinks it is a very hard cupboard!
The Mouse watches Miss Moppet from the top of the cupboard.
Miss Moppet ties up her head in a duster, and sits before the fire.
The Mouse thinks she is looking very ill.
He comes sliding down the bell pull.
Miss Moppet looks worse and worse.
The Mouse comes a little nearer.
Miss Moppet holds her poor head in her paws, and looks at him through a hole in the duster.
The Mouse comes very close.
And then all of a sudden Miss Moppet jumps upon the Mouse!
And because the Mouse has teased Miss Moppet, Miss Moppet thinks she will tease the Mouse; which is not at all nice of Miss Moppet.
She ties him up in the duster, and tosses it about like a ball.
But she forgot about that hole in the duster; and when she untied it there was no Mouse!
He has wriggled out and run away; and he is dancing a jig on top of the cupboard!
