Aesop's Fables
 You're here » Kids Index » Aesop's Fables » Part 1 » Jupiter And The Tortoise Print Version

Jupiter And The Tortoise

Jupiter was about to marry a wife, and determined to celebrate the event by inviting all the animals to a banquet.
      They all came except the Tortoise, who did not put in an appearance, much to Jupiter's surprise.
      So when he next saw the Tortoise he asked him why he had not been at the banquet.
      "I don't care for going out," said the Tortoise; "there's no place like home."
      Jupiter was so much annoyed by this reply that he decreed that from that time forth the Tortoise should carry his house upon his back, and never be able to get away from home even if he wished to.
