It was Tortoise's birthday. When he awoke in bright daylight he thought to himself: "It's my birthday today. I wonder if I will get any presents? What I would really like is a large, green, juicy lettuce! I hope someone thinks of it.""It was kind of my friends to visit me and bring me so many presents. But I would have so much liked a very small lettuce. Perhaps next year... " A tear rolled down his cheek. Suddenly he heard a small voice. "Tortoise! Are you still awake?" It was Mouse, with a large parcel. "Many happy returns of the day!" she squeaked. I'm afraid I am rather late, but the parcel was so heavy to push." "What can it be?" cried Tortoise.
