成语故事

以前,贵州(中国西南部的一个省)没有驴。有人从别的地方带回来一头驴,拴在山下的一棵树上。一只老虎看到了,以为是比自己还厉害的动物,急忙躲到树林里偷偷地看。驴大叫一声,老虎吓了一跳,以为驴要吃了自己。时间一长,老虎觉得驴没有那么厉害,就慢慢走过去戏弄驴。驴生气了,就用蹄子踢老虎。老虎这才明白:原来驴只有这一点儿本领啊!就马上扑过去把驴咬死吃掉了。

In ancient times there were no donkeys in Guizhou Province. Somebody brought a donkey from somewhere and tied it to a tree at the foot of a mountain. A tiger saw the donkey, and thought that it must be a fearsome monster. It hid behind a tree and spied on the donkey.When the donkey brayed,the tiger was frightened, thinking that the donkey was about to devour it. After a while,seeing that the donkey had not moved, the tiger approached it and teased it. The donkey became angry, and kicked the tiger. The tiger thought to itself:"Is that all it is capable of?" It then jumped on the donkey and ate it.
