    STORYTELL ING UNIT : Fables

    AESOPS FABLES The Wolf in Sheeps Clothing

    MORAL MESSAGE: _________________________________________________________________________________________

    The Fox and the Lion

    MORAL MESSAGE: _________________________________________________________________________________________

    A Wolf found great difficulty in getting at the sheep owing to the vigilance of the

    shepherd and his dogs. But one day it found the skin of a sheep that had been flayed and

    thrown aside, so it put the skin on over its own pelt and strolled down among the sheep.

    The Lamb that belonged to the sheep whose skin the Wolf was wearing, began to follow the

    Wolf in the Sheeps clothing; so, leading the Lamb a little apart, he soon made a meal of her,

    and for some time he succeeded in deceiving the sheep, and enjoying hearty meals.

    A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four Oxen used to dwell. Many a time he

    tried to attack them; but whenever he came near they turned their tails to one another, so

    that whichever way he approached them he was met by the horns of one of them. At last,

    however, they fell to quarrelling amongst themselves, and each went off to a separate

    pasture, alone, each in a separate corner of the field. Then the Lion attacked them one by

    one and soon made an end of all four.

    The Farmer and the Snake

    MORAL MESSAGE: _________________________________________________________________________________________

    The Farmer and the Cranes

    MORAL MESSAGE: _________________________________________________________________________________________

    One winter a Farmer found a Snake stiff and frozen with cold. He had compassion

    on it, and taking it up, placed it in his bosom. The Snake quickly revived by the warmth, and

    resuming its natural instincts, but its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound. Oh,

    cried the Farmer with his last breath, I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel.

    Some Cranes made their feeding grounds on some plow-lands newly sown with

    wheat. For a long time the Farmer, brandishing an empty sling, chased them away by the

    terror he inspired; but when the birds found that the sling was only swung in the air, they

    ceased to take any notice and would not move. The Farmer, on seeing this, charged his

    sling with stones, and killed a great number. The remaining birds at once forsook his fields,

    crying to each other, It is time for us to be off to Liliput: for this man is no longer content to

    scare us, but begins to show us in earnest what he can do.
