The Mouse Ghost
This is one of the amazing funny bedtime stories for 9 year olds. Once upon a time in a jungle lived a little mouse named Squeaky. He was so tiny that he was always afraid of the other larger animals. “I am so small and these animals are so big. What can I do?” the poor mouse thought to himself.

Later, that night, he found some unusual cloth lying near his house. “Oh, what is this?” Squeaky said. He thought for a while and soon he realized that it was a pillow cover humans use. “It looks like that pillow cover humans use. I wonder how it came here! Oh, I have an idea! I can have some fun with this,” laughed the mouse.
In a couple of seconds, the mouse drew two eyes and lips with that pen. It was made in such a way that it was appearing to be a ghost. “Now, I am going to have fun!” he said happily. As night was approaching, all the big animals started to go back to their houses.
First, there came a rabbit. The rabbit got so afraid after seeing the shadow of the ghost that he ran away at once. Soon, the deer came across the same path. When she saw the house covered with white cloth, she shouted, “Ghost! Ghost! There is a ghost in the jungle!” The mouse was really enjoying this. Even the king of the jungle was now afraid of him. All the big animals changed their way and stopped using that path.
But then, one day, there was a huge thunderstorm. All the animals had no choice but to cross that scary path. All the trees had fallen and because of that the rest of the paths were blocked. “I have to use this path. I hope the ghost is not here,” said the rabbit. However, the rabbit saw the ghost. The rabbit jumped out of fear. You may also like to read, The Mouse That Roared Story.
