Children love stories. So I'll tell you a story named "By a Whisker". There was a tiger named Arjun who had a huge good looking whisker but was a lazy tiger. He had a Wife named Agni who married him because of that whisker. He sees dreams every time he sleeps eating this and that. He never tried to catch it but his wife brought it for him.

One day he thought of eating deer. He told his wife to bring some. Agni counted his whisker and get to catch prey. Suddenly due to heavy breeze he lost some whisker by wasp which kept it on top of the trunk of elephant Bhīma. He looked here and there and saw one languor. He asked to bring him his whisker. Languor asked coconuts in return of that. So tiger shakes the tree. Coconuts fall on his head by which it lose memory. Arjun thought he is donkey and wanted to marry another donkey. When his wife Agni and languor shakes him again he resolve. Agni accept him without whisker. In happy mood he jumps and again lose his memory.
