Children's Story: by

The little boy was happily playing in the garden with his dog when his mother called him in for his tea, as he walked back to the house he kicked a small ball quite hard towards the barn.
It travelled at some speed and by accident it wedged itself firmly into a small hole in the barn wall, this was no ordinary small hole but the doorway to a mouse's home.
The ball had trapped a family of baby mice inside the wall leaving their mother and father outside panic stricken and very worried indeed.
What were they to do?

Children's Story: by

They tried to pull the ball free but could not as they had nothing to hold onto, they needed some help.
Other mice had gathered around by now to see what was going on.
They needed a plan, how could the mice free the ball?
One of the older mice had an idea, the ball needed to be pulled out of the hole like the cork from a bottle and he knew just how to do it.
On the garden table, as luck would have it, lay a corkscrew left from the night before.
Some of the mice went off to fetch it, they pushed it from the table and dragged it across the grass to the wedged ball.
The mice lifted the corkscrew up and pressed it into the ball, they pushed and turned, turned and pushed till the point entered the ball.
In it went twisting its way down the thread, once the corkscrew was firmly in it was just a question of how to pull it out?
Ropes would have to be tied on, so like a Tug of war, the mice could pull the ball out.
Some string was found in the garden shed, so two lengths were tied tightly to the handle of the corkscrew allowing two teams of mice to pull.
The mice began to pull, heave ho, heave ho, they pulled and pulled.
Suddenly the ball came out sending all the mice head over heels on top of each other.

Children's Story: by

The ball was free and the baby mice were saved, Hooray they cheered!
Things went back to normal after the drama, except for the little boy who could never understand why a corkscrew with two pieces of string tied to it had been twisted into his ball!
Leaving him very puzzled, it still remains a mystery today.
