  The Flea, the Grasshopper, and the Skipjack once wanted to see which of them could jump highest; and they invited the whole world, and whoever else would come, to see the grand sight. And there the three famous jumpers were met together in the room。

  有一次,跳蚤、蚱蜢和跳鹅(注:这是丹麦一种旧式的玩具,它是用一根鹅的胸骨做成的;加上一根木栓和一根线,再擦上一点蜡油,就可以使它跳跃。)想要知道它们之中谁跳得最高。它们把所有的人和任何愿意来的人都请来参观这个伟大的场面。它们这三位著名的跳高者就在一个房间里集合起来。

  "Yes, I'll give my daughter to him who jumps highest," said the King, "for it would be mean to let these people jump for nothing."

  "对啦,谁跳得最高,我就把我的女儿嫁给谁!"国王说,"因为,假如让这些朋友白白地跳一阵子,那就未免太不像话了!"

  The Flea stepped out first. He had very pretty manners, and bowed in all directions, for he had young ladies' blood in his veins, and was accustomed to consort only with human beings; and that was of great consequence。

  跳蚤第一个出场。它的态度非常可爱:它向四周的人敬礼,因为它身体中流着年轻小姐的血液,习惯于跟人类混在一起,而这一点是非常重要的。

  Then came the Grasshopper: he was certainly much heavier, but he had a good figure, and wore the green uniform that was born with him. This person, moreover, maintained that he belonged to a very old family in the land of Egypt, and that he was highly esteemed

  there. He had just come from the field, he said, and had been put into a card house three stories high, and all made of picture cards with the figures turned inwards. There were doors and windows in the house, cut in the body of the Queen of Hearts。

  接着蚱蜢就出场了,它的确很粗笨,但它的身体很好看。它穿着它那套天生的绿制服。此外,它的整个外表说明它是出身于埃及的一个古老的家庭,因此它在这儿非常受到人们的尊敬。人们把它从田野里弄过来,放在一个用纸牌做的三层楼的房子里——这些纸牌有画的一面都朝里。这房子有门也有窗,而且它们是从"美人"身中剪出来的。

  "I sing so," he said, "that sixteen native crickets who have chirped

  from their youth up, and have never yet had a card house of their own, would become thinner than they are with envy if they were to hear me."

  "我唱得非常好,"它说,"甚至16个本地产的蟋蟀从小时候开始唱起,到现在还没有获得一间纸屋哩。它们听到我的情形就嫉妒得要命,把身体弄得比以前还要瘦了。"

  Both of them, the Flea and the Grasshopper, took care to announce who they were, and that they considered themselves entitled to marry a Princess。

  跳蚤和蚱蜢这两位毫不含糊地说明了它们是怎样的人物。它们认为它们有资格和一位公主结婚。

  The Skipjack said nothing, but it was said of him that he thought all the more; and directly the Yard Dog had smelt at him he was ready to assert that the Skipjack was of good family, and formed from the breastbone of an undoubted goose. The old councillor, who had received three medals for holding his tongue, declared that the Skipjack possessed the gift of prophecy; one could tell by his bones whether there would be a severe winter or a mild one; and that's more than one can always tell from the breastbone of the man who writes the almanac。

  跳鹅一句话也不说。不过据说它自己更觉得了不起。宫里的狗儿把它嗅了一下,很有把握地说,跳鹅是来自一个上等的家庭。那位因为从来不讲话而获得了三个勋章的老顾问官说,他知道跳鹅有预见的天才:人们只须看看它的背脊骨就能预知冬天是温和还是寒冷。这一点人们是没有办法从写历书的人的背脊骨上看出来的。
