It was a hot day and they soon began to feel tired. 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'.
So he climbed up on the back of the other frog to see the city. Now when the frog put up his head his eye could only see what was behind, not what was in front. So he saw the village they had just left. 'Can you see the city?' asked the frog who was below. 'Yes' answered the frog who had climbed up. 'I can see it. It looks just like our village'. Then the frog thought that it was not worthwhile going any farther. They went back and told the frogs around the village that they had seen the city and it was just like theirs.
