The Groaning Volcano
This version is perhaps this series' most extensive (and confused?) transformation of a traditional fable. The volcano groans. Some think it is an earthquake; women think that there is a giant inside the mountain wanting to get out. Not far away, a mouse is looking for food and paying no attention to the groan. Then it sees the people and runs afraid into its hole. Then the volcano turns so quiet that people begin to laugh at the volcano. People say It just giving the groan but can make anybody fear even a mouse. I challenge readers to come up with the one meaning of that statement! The moral does not help clarify things for me: The great does not always make others fear.
