An Owl’s Party

One day, Hoo-Hoo owl thought, “I will throw a party at midnight and invite, Taylor the mouse, Soft-Ears the rabbit, Singer the nightingale and Frisky the squirrel. And that will be a delicious meal indeed!”

“A grand party!” squeaked the mouse in delight. “And so much to eat!” said Singer when they heard about the party.

“But why should the party begin at midnight?” thought Frisky, after reading the owl’s invitation card very carefully.

So at night, instead of going inside Hoo-Hoo’s house, they all watched from a distance.

Inside, a group of owls joked, “Today a grand feast!” When they heard this, Frisky and the others realized they were going to be the food themselves, and ran away!
