A Flea, a Grasshopper, and a leap-frog once wanted to see which could jump highest; and they invited the whole world to watch it.
The king heard about the competition and said, “I will give my daughter to him who jumps highest.”
The Flea was the first to step forward. He had exquisite manners, and bowed to the audience on all sides.
Then came the Grasshopper. He was heavier, but he was well-mannered, and wore a green uniform.
“I sing so well,” said he, “all the other grasshoppers were jealous of me”.
Both the Flea and the Grasshopper thought they were good enough to marry a Princess.
The leap-frog, on the other hand, said nothing.
Now the trial was to begin. The flea jumped so high that nobody could see where he went to; the grasshopper jumped only half as high; but he leaped into the King’s face.
The leap-frog stood still for a long time, lost in thought, when, pop! He made a jump into the lap of the Princess, who was sitting on a little golden stool close by.
Here upon the King said, “There is nothing above my daughter; therefore to jump close to her is the highest jump that can be made; the leap-frog understood this. He is brave and smart.”
With these words, the king gave the princess to the leap frog.
Who jumps the highest in the competition? The flea, the grasshopper, or the leap frog?/谁在比赛中跳的最高？跳蚤，蚱蜢还是跳蛙？
What did the king say when he decided to give his daughter to the leap frog?/国王决定将跳蛙许配给他女儿的时候，他说了什么话？
