The sky was blue above. But she did not look up. Little Goat went to find the sweetest grass. The river gurgled below. But Little Goat did not listen to its song. But Little Goat didn’t answer.

A bird called to her, saying, “How do you do?”. She just walked along looking for the sweetest grass. As she walked along, Little Goat moved further and further away from Mother Goat. Little Goat found the sweetest grass. She ate and ate. She had walked far from Mother Goat.

Mother Goat wondered where Little Goat had gone. She looked in the mealie patch, but Little Goat was not there

Mother Goat ran to the river. But Little Goat was not there. “Where are you, Little Goat,” bleated Mother Goat. A bird called to Mother Goat. “Little Goat is asleep in the sweet grass across the bridge.” Mother Goat crossed the bridge, to the sweet grass. There she found Little Goat fast asleep.

“Wake up, Little Goat,” said Mother Goat gently. “You were lost!”. “I wasn’t lost I have been here all the time!” said Little Goat.

THE WILD BOAR

THE WILD BOAR

A Wild Boar was sharpening his tusks busily against the stump of a tree, when a Fox happened by. Now the Fox was always looking for a chance to make fun of his
neighbours. So he made a great show of looking anxiously about, as if in fear of some hidden enemy. But the Boar kept right on with his work.


«Why are you doing that?» asked the Fox at last with a grin. «There isn’t any danger that I can see.» «True enough,» replied the Boar, «but when danger does come there will not be time for such work as this. My weapons will have to be ready for use then, or I shall suffer for it.»

Moral: Preparedness for war is the best guarantee of peace.

THE ASS

An Ass and a Fox had become close comrades, and were constantly in each other’s company. While the Ass cropped a fresh bit of greens, the Fox would devour a chicken from the neighbouring farmyard or a bit of cheese flched from the dairy. One day the pair unexpectedly met a Lion. The Ass was very much frightened, but the Fox calmed his fears.


«I will talk to him,» he said. So the Fox walked boldly up to the Lion.
«Your highness,» he said in an undertone, so the Ass could not hear him, «I’ve got a fne scheme in my head. If you promise not to hurt me, I will lead that foolish creature yonder into a pit where he can’t get out, and you can feast at your pleasure.»


The Lion agreed and the Fox returned to the Ass. «I made him promise not to hurt us,» said the Fox. «But come, I know a good place to hide till he is gone.» So the Fox led the Ass into a deep pit. But when the Lion saw that the Ass was his for the taking, he frst of all struck down the traitor Fox.
