This fable is adapted from an anecdote in the second chaper of the book, Standing for Something by Gordon B. Hinckley, fifteenth president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

According to the book, this is a story that Hinckley's father told to him when he was a boy. I illustrated it as part of a family home evening lesson.
