George is a little monkey. He lives in a deep forest. He likes jumping and
climbing trees. He is happy every day. But he has a shortcoming. He is
One day an old man goes by the forest. He carries a lot of straw hats.
George sees the man, and the man sees George, too. The man says to himself,
"What a lovely monkey! I will catch him. I will take him home."
The man sits down and thinks over. George sees and also sits down. The man
has an idea. He puts a hat on his head, and puts other hats on the ground. Then
he pretends to sleep.
George is curious and looks at the hats. "I will be nice if I put a hat on
my head." George thinks. Then he climbs down from the tree, picks up a hat and
puts it on. The hat is too big, and covers George's eyes. George can't see. And
the man gets up at once, rushes out and catches him quickly.
