Aesop's Fables are a collection of stories written by Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BCE. The Lion and the Mouse is one of his most famous fables.
A Lion lay asleep in the forest, his great head resting on his paws. A timid little Mouse came upon him unexpectedly, and in her fright and haste to get away, ran across the Lion's nose. Roused from his nap, the Lion laid his huge paw angrily on the tiny creature to kill her.
"Spare me!" begged the poor Mouse. "Please let me go and some day I will surely repay you."
The Lion was much amused to think that a Mouse could ever help him. But he was generous and finally let the Mouse go.
Some days later, while stalking his prey in the forest, the Lion was caught in the toils of a hunter's net. Unable to free himself, he filled the forest with his angry roaring. The Mouse knew the voice and quickly found the Lion struggling in the net. Running to one of the great ropes that bound him, she gnawed it until it parted, and soon the Lion was free. "
You laughed when I said I would repay you," said the Mouse. "Now you see that even a Mouse can help a Lion."
A kindness is never wasted.

You are now ready to write your goblin story. First, have a look at your plan from Wednesday and see if you are still happy with it and make any edits that you need to. Then open your home learning journal and write your story. It may take a few attempts to get a story that you are really happy with. Don’t worry about this as it is called drafting and editing and is a very important part of the writing process. Can you illustrate your story? Good luck, I can’t wait to read it!
