今天给大家讲的故事主角是猴子,据说在从前,树林里有一只猴子,每天猴子都会爬上树看下面的小河看见渔夫扔网与捕鱼。有一天渔民把网放下后吃午饭去了。然后,猴子迅速从树上爬下来跑到河边,模仿渔民的样子撒网,大家想想接下来猴子会撒到鱼吗?会被渔夫逮到吗?从下面的故事中找找答案吧。

Once upon a time, there lived a monkey in the woods. The monkey climbed up the tree and looked down at the river everyday.

One day, the monkey saw fishermen throw a net over the river. He watched how the fishermen caught fish.

Sometime after, the fishermen left the net and went to have lunch. Then, the monkey climbed down from the tree and went to the riverside. The monkey was planning to throw the net like the fishermen did.

The monkey was confident since he was good at imitating. Yet, the net wound around the monkey when he touched it. Tied up in the net, the monkey fell into the water.

The monkey regretted his behavior, but it was too late. "I should have learned how to use the net before touching it. After believing my prowess and showing off, I am in a bad fix." The monkey who did not behave carefully drowned in the water.
