There once was a mouse king and his kingdom was rich with cheese. One day his ministers informed him that a rat was stealing the cheese. No one was able to catch the thief, not even the king's army. The king's mother said, 'I will put an end to this!' She ordered her best workmen to build a trap disguised as the most beautiful cheesecake. They then placed it on the tallest tower where no average mouse would reach it. And so it happened, the rat was caught. The thief was fooled by the old queen's wit!
