A True Story:
Two mice had to do a little obstacle course to get to some food. First they had to climb a ladder. Then they had to pull it up. They tested it to see if it was strong enough and then one of them climbed on the back of the ladder to keep it there. After that the last one had to go across a bridge. The bridge is the kind that has to be pulled back to you before you can cross. The mouse finally crossed and got to the food. He went back down to help the other mouse get some food.
