How to extend the magic
Why not create a special storytelling den in the corner of the room and create your own animal tale. Your story doesn't have to feature a cat and mouse like this one, it could be about any animals you like. They can best friends or arch enemies! If you like, you could begin your story with 'Once upon a time...'.
