NARRATOR:  Once upon in a small village there lived a shepherd boy named Peter.  He lived with his uncle Jim and his aunt Angie.  Every night they sat together by the fireplace to tell stories about wolves.

 

 

UNCLE JIM:  And that was the end of the story.

 

 

PETER: And what happened to the wolf?.

 

 

UNCLE JIM:  He was never seen again.

 

 

PETER: Oh!. Uncle, are you afraid of wolves?.

 

 

UNCLE JIM:  No, but they can´t be around people.

 

 

PETER:  What would happened if they came near our town?.

 

 

UNCLE JIM:  Well, they could harm us, especially our sheep.

 

 

PETER: What about you, aunt Angie, are you afraid of wolves?.

 

 

AUNT ANGIE:  Yes, I am Peter!.  Everybody in town is afraid of wolves!.

 

 

PETER: Oh, I see!.

 

 

AUNT ANGIE:  It´s late Peter.  Tomorrow morning you must take care of the sheep.

 

 

PETER:  See you tomorrow.

 

 

UNCLE JIM AND AUNT ANGIE:  Good night, dear.

 

 

NARRATOR:  Peter went to bed, and next day while he was sitting in the hillside he thought.

 

 

PETER:  I am bored.  I don´t like to be here just taking care of the sheep.  I should be in the lake swimming!.

 

 

NARRATOR:  Then he thought of a way to have fun.

 

 

PETER:  That´s it!.

 

 

NARRATOR:  And he started shouting.

 

 

PETER:  The wolf!.  The wolf!.  The wolf is coming!.

 

 

NARRATOR:  Some people came to see what was happening.  They brought picks and shovels, and everything else they could find to get rid of the wolf.

 

 

VILLAGER 1:  What´s wrong?.

 

 

PETER:  I saw the wolf over there.  He´s looking at us right now!.

 

 

VILLAGER 2:  Where?.

 

 

PETER:  He´s behind those trees!.

 

 

VILLAGER 3:  I can´t see anything!.

 

 

VILLAGER 4:  Are you sure Peter that you saw the wolf?.

 

 

PETER:  Yes I am.  He´s moving.  Look!.

 

 

VILLAGER 1, 2, 3, 4:  Let´s get him!.

 

 

NARRATOR: As the villagers approached the trees where the wolf was supposed to be, Peter started laughing.

 

 

PETER:  It wasn´t true!. Ha, ha, ha, ha! . It was a lie!. Ha, ha, ha, ha!.

 

 

NARRATOR:  Then the villagers came back to where Peter was.

 

 

VILLAGER 4:  I knew it!.

 

 

VILLAGER 1:  Why did you lie to us, Peter?.

 

 

VILLAGER 2:  You know this isn´t funny!.

 

 

PETER:  Yes it is!. Ha, ha, ha, ha! .

 

 

VILLAGER 3:  Let´s go, we have work to do, and I will talk to your uncle about this.

 

 

PETER:  You are scared of the wolf!.  You are scared of the wolf!.  Ha, ha, ha, ha!.

 

 

NARRATOR:  When the villagers left, Peter kept laughing.

 

 

PETER:  At least I had a good time today!.

 

 

NARRATOR:  But what Peter didn´t know, is that the wolf as indeed hidden behind the trees, just watching him.  When he went back home that afternoon, his uncle and aunt said.

 

 

UNCLE JIM:  They told me what you did today.

 

 

AUNT ANGIE:  I feel ashamed of you, Peter.

 

 

PETER:  But aunt, I was bored.  You know I don´t like to take care of sheep.

 

 

UNCLE JIM:  That is not a good reason to lie.

 

 

PETER: I am sorry.  I will not do it again.

 

 

UNCLE JIM AND AUNT ANGIE:  We hope so.

 

 

AUNT ANGIE:  Go to bed now, and we will see you in the morning.

 

 

PETER:  Good night.

 

 

UNCLE JIM AND AUNT ANGIE:  Good night, dear.

 

 

NARRATOR:  Next day after having his usual breakfast, Peter went to the hillside once again.  While he was taking care of the sheep, he saw the real wolf approaching, and he started shouting.

 

 

PETER:  The wolf!.  The wolf!.  The wolf is coming!.

 

 

NARRATOR:  The same people that a day before tried to help him, heard him, and they said.

 

 

VILLAGER 1:  Sure!.  Sure!.  You are trying to fool us again!.

 

 

VILLAGER 2:  Give him a piece of bread!.  Ha, ha, ha, ha.

 

 

PETER:  No!.  I am telling you the truth!.  Help!.  Help!.  The wolf is chasing the sheep!.

 

 

VILLAGER 3:  He must be tired!.  Give him some water!.  Ha, ha, ha, ha!.

 

 

PETER:  Please, come!.  The wolf is here!.

 

 

VILLAGER 4:  Leave us alone, Peter!.  We have work to do!.

 

 

PETER:  Oh No!.  The wolf ate all the sheep!.

 

 

VILLAGER 1:  Sure!.  Sure!.  Ha, ha, ha, ha.

 

 

PETER:  It´s the truth!. The wolf is gone, and the sheep too!.

 

 

NARRATOR: Then one of the villagers went to where Peter was.

 

 

VILLAGER 1: Stop it, Peter!.   But, why are you crying?.

 

 

PETER:  I told you, it was the wolf.  He was here.

 

 

VILLAGER 1:  Oh!.  So you were telling the truth.

 

 

NARRATOR:  The rest of the villagers came and said.

 

 

VILLAGER 2:  We thought it was a joke, just like yesterday.  Do you remember?.

 

 

PETER:  Yes, I remember, and I am sorry.

 

 

VILLAGER 3:  We hope you learned your lesson, Peter.

 

 

VILLAGER 4:  You should not lie.  People will not trust liers, even if they say the truth.

 

 

PETER:  I will never lie again, I promise!.

THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF

 

There was once a young Shepherd Boy who tended his sheep at the foot of a mountain near a dark forest. It was rather lonely for him all day, so he thought upon a plan by which he could get a little company and some excitement. He rushed down towards the village calling out “Wolf, Wolf,” and the villagers came out to meet him, and some of them stopped with him for a considerable time. This pleased the boy so much that a few days afterwards he tried the same trick, and again the villagers came to his help. But shortly after this a Wolf actually did come out from the forest, and began to worry the sheep, and the boy of course cried out “Wolf, Wolf,” still louder than before. But this time the villagers, who had been fooled twice before, thought the boy was again deceiving them, and nobody stirred to come to his help. So the Wolf made a good meal off the boy’s flock, and when the boy complained, the wise man of the village said:

 

“A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth.”
