“Oh, yeah?” Puss challenged. “I bet you don’t even know how to change your shape.”
“Of course I do!” the ogre cried. “Just watch!”
He turned into a roaring lion, then a marauding elephant. Puss barely escaped trampling.
“Ah,” the cat said quickly, “but small is harder. I bet you couldn’t be a mouse, say.”
“Of course I can!” the ogre roared, and shrank.
The cat waited, salivating.
Then a skunk sprayed him straight in the face.
“Ha!” the ogre howled, doubling over. “Did you think I was stupid or something?”
