Freddy the fox was prowling around one dark night behind an actor's house when he found a window open . In he jumped and began to explore . In the corner he found a big trunk, full of the clothes the actor wore on the stage .
On the top was a mask with a very handsome face painted on it . "What a fine face," thought Freddie . "I should like to be as handsome as that ." He sat back and looked at it for a while , swishing his tail . Then he said : "What a pity it has no brains," and jumped back out of the window .
