Two frogs lived in a very small village. They always wanted to see the big city that was far away.
They talked about their trip for a long time and at last they set off to see the city.
It was a hot day, and they got tired quickly. They had only gone a little way when one said to the other, "We must be nearly there. Can you see the city?"
"No," said the other frog, "but if I climb on your back I might be able to see it."
The frog hopped on and looked way up. With his head tilted back, his eyes could only see what was behind them, not what was in front. He saw the village they had just left.
"Can you see the city?" asked the frog who was below.
"Yes!" answered the frog. "I can see it. It looks just like our village!"
"It's too hot to bother going to the city if it looks just like home," said the bottom frog. The frogs turned back and returned to their village. They told all the other frogs that they had seen the big city and it looked exactly like their own small village.
