I don't understand it.And also this is my first time commenting on learnenglish kids.

Hi LordOnlineRobot,

Thanks for your comment.

A mouse makes a small hole but a monster would make a very big hole. The joke is silly and funny because people don't really have a monster in their house.


We hope you enjoy practising your English on LearnEnglish Kids!
