The Jumping Competition

Once upon a time, a cricket, a frog and a kangaroo decided to have a jumping competition.

The king and his daughter, the lovely princess, came to know about the competition and promised a reward for the one who would jump the highest. The cricket jumped high. He was the one who jumped the highest. He jumped so high that no one ever saw him land. So, the judges disqualified him. The frog was bigger than the cricket. And when he jumped, the people saw him. But sadly, the frog landed right on top of the king’s head! The frog was also out of the competition. The clever kangaroo jumped straight into the princess’s lap! She was very happy with him and the kangaroo won the competition. The king, as promised, rewarded the kangaroo with many gifts.
