The Wolf and the Seven Little Goats

In a cozy house near a whispering forest, there lived a kind mother goat with her seven playful kids. One sunny day, the mother needed to fetch food and cautioned her kids, “Beware of the sly wolf with his hoarse voice and dark paws!” They nodded bravely.

No sooner had she left, a knock echoed. “Open up, little ones, it’s Mommy!” But the kids, smart and alert, recognized the wolf’s rough voice. “Nice try, Mr. Wolf, but our mom sings sweetly!”

Frustrated, the wolf gobbled chalk to soften his voice and returned. This time, he fooled the kids with his soft voice, but his black paws gave him away again! “No way, your paws are too dark!” they shouted.

The wolf, cunning and relentless, tricked a baker and a miller to disguise his paws. On his third try, with soft voice and white paws, he tricked the kids into opening the door. Oh no!

The kids scattered, hiding everywhere – under the table, in the bed, even in the clock case! But the wolf was quick and found all except the tiniest, who was cleverly hidden.

When Mother Goat returned, she was shocked by the chaos. Only the smallest kid emerged, recounting the tale of the wolf’s trickery. With tears and determination, they set out to find the wolf.

In the meadow, they found him, snoring under a tree. Mother Goat noticed something stirring in his belly. “Could my little ones still be there?” With a swift snip, she cut open the wolf’s belly, and out hopped her six kids, unharmed!

Together, they filled the sleeping wolf with stones and sewed him up. When the wolf awoke, thirsty and heavy, he stumbled to a brook. But the stones dragged him down into the water, and he was never seen again.

The seven little goats danced around their mother, cheering, “The wolf is gone! We’re safe and sound!” They hugged each other, their hearts filled with joy and courage.

Moral of the Story: Always be cautious and clever, especially when dealing with strangers.
