And Sam went on and by and by he met another Tiger, and it said to him, “Little Sam, I’m going to eat you up!”

And Sam said, “Oh! Please, Mr. Tiger, don’t eat me up, and I’ll give you my beautiful little Purple Shoes with Crimson Soles and Crimson Linings.”

But the Tiger said, “What use would your shoes be to me? I’ve got four feet and you’ve got only two.”

“You haven’t got enough shoes for me.” But Sam said, “You could wear them on your ears.”

“So I could,” said the Tiger, “that’s a very good idea. Give them to me, and I won’t eat you this time.”

So the Tiger got poor Sam’s beautiful little Purple Shoes with Crimson Soles and Crimson Linings, and went away saying, “Now I’m the grandest Tiger in the Jungle.”
