The Wolf and the Seven Kids
AMOTHER goat needs to go to the shops and, before leaving, warns her seven kids not to answer the door to the local wolf or he’ll eat them. The wolf manages to convince the kids that he is, in fact, a small goat. On gaining entry, he eats them all except one, which has hidden itself in a clock case, then leaves for a postprandial nap.
Mother Goat returns and learns what has happened from her remaining kid. She finds the slumbering wolf, cuts his stomach open and releases her kids—which, happily, he swallowed whole—and replaces them with stones, sewing him back up so he won’t notice. Waking up with stomach ache, the wolf tries to take a drink from a well and falls in, thanks to his stone-filled belly. Probably drowns.
The moral of the story
Young children, goats and pigs shouldn’t answer the door to strangers (still a valid lesson). You will ultimately be punished for wicked deeds (also valid).
