The Teremok

One day, a mouse was running about the field when it saw a little teremok. As no one was inside, the mouse decided to settle there. The next day, a frog came hopping along and asked if it too could live in the teremok. The mice agreed and the two animals lived in peace. They were then joined by a hare, followed by a fox, followed by a grey wolf. They all lived together in the teremok and there was enough room for everyone. One day, however, a bear came to eat the animals. It jumped on the teremok and the teremok collapsed. The animals took to their heels and ran, and the bear was unable to catch them.
