Plays Tug of War
S. E. Schlosser
Now Rabbit had a favorite
place on the river where he always
went to drink water. It was on a bend in the river,
and two Snakes
lived there, one on the upper side of the bend and
one on the lower.
Rabbit soon learned that neither of the Snakes knew
that the other
Snake lived there.
Ho, ho, ho, thought Rabbit. I am going to have a
bit of fun!
Rabbit went to the Snake that lived on the upper
bend of the river.
am a very strong Rabbit," he told the Snake. "I bet
I can pull you
right out of the water."
