In this story, Little Mouse finds himself near a river and desperately wants to cross it to see what is on the other side. A frog is nearby and grants him the mighty jumping power, renaming him Jumping Mouse. With his new skill, he jumps to different places thinking he has landed on solid ground but instead comes across two animals. Both of these animals (first a bison, then a wolf) are dying and the only way to save them is with a mouse’s eye. Jumping mouse gives up his eyes thus leaving him blind. The frog comes back to Jumping Mouse and sees the grateful acts that he has done. He tells the mouse to jump in the air one more time for his sight will be restored. When he does jump he becomes a beautiful eagle, both regaining his sight and allowing him to go wherever his curiosity leads him.
