A greedy mouse saw a basket full of corn. He wanted to eat it. So he made a small hole in the basket.

一只贪心的老鼠看到了满满一篮子玉米。他很想吃,所以在篮子上挖了一个小洞。

He squeezed in through the hole. He ate a lot of corn. He felt full and was very happy.

他从洞里挤了进去,吃了很多玉米,感觉很饱,也非常高兴。

Now he wanted to come out. He tried to come out through the small hole. He could not.

现在他想出来。他试图从那个小洞里钻出来。但他出不来。

His belly was full. He tried again. But it was of no use. The mouse started crying.

他的肚子鼓鼓的。他又试了一次。但是没有用。老鼠开始哭了起来。

A rabbit was passing by. It heard the mouse’s cry and asked, “Why are you crying, my friend?”

这时有一只兔子经过。它听到了老鼠的哭声,就问:“你为什么哭啊,我的朋友?”

The mouse explained, “I made a small hole and came into the basket to eat the corn. Now I am not able to get out through that hole.”

老鼠解释说:“我挖了一个小洞,到篮子里吃玉米。现在我没办法从那个洞出去了。”

The rabbit said, “It is because you ate too much. Wait till your belly shrinks.” The rabbit laughed and went away.

兔子说:“那是因为你吃得太多了。等到你肚子变小了再出来吧。”兔子笑着走开了。

The mouse fell asleep in the basket.

老鼠在篮子里睡着了。

The next morning his belly had shrunk. But he wanted to eat some more corn. He forgot all about getting out of the basket. So he ate the corn and his belly was really big again.

第二天早上,他的肚子缩小了。但是他想再吃点玉米,完全忘了从篮里出来这回事。所以他又吃了玉米,这下他的肚子又大了。

After eating, the mouse remembered that he had to escape. But obviously, he could not. So he thought, “Oh! Now I will go out tomorrow.”

吃完后,老鼠想起他必须出去。但显然,他出不去。所以他想,“哦!现在我只能等明天再出去了。”
The cat was the next passerby. He smelt the mouse in the basket. He lifted its lid and ate the mouse.
而这次路过的是一只。他闻到了篮子里老鼠的气味。猫打开盖子,把老鼠吃了。
