LM opens a collection of eight stories in an undersized book. The closing story is labelled out of nowhere Story XXIV! The lion puts his paw by accident onto the mouse, who makes only a squeak and no plea. The lion is good-hearted. Francis and Sophia act it out. Mother draws and subverts the moral: Be kind to the little, including animals. These will not return the favor, but the real reward is knowing that God is pleased and we were merciful!
