A little monkey was sitting in the top of a tree by the river. Down below, fishermen were throwing their nets out into the water. "That looks fun," thought the monkey.
I 'd like to try it." when the fishermen went off their lunch, he scampered down the tree and grabbed the nearest net. But he was much too small, and instead of throwing the net into the water, it wrapped itself round him. The more he wriggled to get free, the tighter it became until he rolled into the water. Luckily for him, the fishermen came back just in time to rescue him. "You stick to jumping around in trees," they said, "and leave us to do the fishing."
