Story Summary

Hare, Fox, Leopard and Elephant each tried to enter Hare's cave but met with a monster's voice yelling that he ate rhinos for lunch and elephants for dinner. It was frog who was brave enough to drive out the monster, a caterpillar who, with a sheepish grin, commented that there was quite an echo in Hare's cave.
