A terrible storm overturned the sailor’s ship. Everyone along with the sailor’s pet, a Monkey fell into the sea. Suddenly a Dolphin appeared and saved the Monkey from drowning.
The Dolphin took the Monkey to the shore of an Island and the Monkey came down from the Dolphin’s back.
The Dolphin asked the Monkey “Do you know this island?”
The Monkey replied, “Yes, I do. In fact, the King of the island is my best friend. Do you know that I am actually a Prince?”
Knowing that no one lived on the island, the Dolphin said, “Well, well, so you are a prince! Now you can be a king!”
The Monkey asked, “How can I be a king?”
As the Dolphin started swimming away, it answered, “That is easy. As you are the only creature on this island, you will naturally be the King!”
Lesson: Those who lie and boast may end up in trouble.
