Once upon a time, there was a young meerkat called Milly who, boasting how she could run faster than anyone else, was constantly teasing Grandpa Meerkat for his slowness.
Then one day, Grandpa Meerkat answered back. ‘Who do you think you are? You might be quick, but you can still be beaten in a race!’
Milly Meerkat squealed with laughter. ‘Beaten in a race? There isn’t a meerkat in the world who’s as fast as me!’
Annoyed by her boasting, Grandpa Meerkat challenged Milly to a race.
