The Sleeping Dog

Fable (fiction) 697 words, Level M (Grade 2), Lexile 520L.
In this retelling of an Ituri fable, a curious monkey comes upon a sleeping animal. Soon all sorts of forest creatures gather to look at the odd beast. Many can say what it is not, but none can say what it is. The sleeping dog, awakened by the commotion, begins to bark and chase the animals. Since then, dogs have chased any animal they see. The moral of the story is to "let sleeping dogs lie."
