Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The Three Little Mice Once upon a time there were three little mice who lived on a farm with their mother and father. They decided that, although they were just little mice, they were quite grown up enough to make their way in the big wide world, so one day they set off together to make their fortunes. After they had walked for quite some time, one of the little mice started to feel rather tired.
