The boy who cries wolfOnce there is a boy. He has many sheep. He looks after them every day. Nobody plays with him. He feels very lonely. He thinks his work is not interesting at all. He wants to have some fun. So he decides to play a trick with the people in the village.
“Help! Help! Wolf! Wolf! I see a wolf, a big wolf.” The boy shouts loudly.
The villagers hear the shouting. They go quickly with sticks and knives.
When they arrive, they asks the boy. “Where is the wolf?”
“Wolf? I don’t know where the wolf is. I am just kidding. Ha ha ha…” Says the boy.
The villagers reply angrily, “You are so naughty. We are all busy. That is not funny at all.” All of the villagers go back to the village.
The boy laughs. He thinks it is so fun that so many adults are cheated. He wants to have a rest and do that again.
A few minutes later, the boy is crying for wolf again. Some villagers think the boy is fooling them again. But others think maybe this time the wolf is really coming.
So all the villagers trust the boy once more.
They asks the boy where the wolf is. The boy laughs once again. He laughs at the villagers, “Don’t be silly. There is no wolf here. There are some foolish men. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!”
The villagers are very angry. They promise not to help him next time if he doesn’t correct.
The next day, a wolf comes. “Hello, my friend. How are you? I am glad to meet you. ”
“Oh, my God…” The boy says scared.
Then the boy shouts loudly and scared. “Wolf! Wolf! Help! Help! The wolf is eating my sheep.”
But now no one will trust him any more. No one will come to help him.
The wolf takes away all the boy’s sheep
