Sounds Scary

A rabbit hops up to you and says, "I think something bad is in my cave. Please help me."

"Who is in here?" you yell into the cave.

You hear, "It's me! I am strong and can crush rabbits and bears into dust!"

"Scary!" says the rabbit.

A lion comes by and shouts into the cave, "Who is in here?"

"It's me! I can crush lions and tigers into dust!"

"I am out of here," says the lion. "That thing can crush me!"

Then a little spider shouts into the cave, "I am VERY, VERY, VERY strong! I can crush ALL things into dust!"

A little mouse runs out of the cave.

"You are only a tiny mouse!" yells the rabbit. "You tricked us and the spider tricked you."

"You don't need to be big to be scary or smart!" you say.
