VI. The Wolf and the Lamb

One day a little lamb was lost 1 in a dark wood.
He ran on and on, but could not find his way out.2
At last he became frightened and began to bleat.3
A hungry Wolf `4 heard him.
How glad was the wolf to find such a good dinner !
" Oh, Mr Wolf !" cried the little lamb, " please show me the way home." 5
" Show you the way home! " growled s the wolf. " I am hungry, and I'm going to eat you."
" Oh, please, please, Mr Wolf," begged the frightened lamb, " please let me go !" " No, no, I'll eat you," growled the wolf. And he sprang 7 at the lamb, now almost dead with fright.8 Just then the little lamb had a good idea.9
11 Oh, Mr Wolf," said he, "I have heard that you have a very fine voice. I love to dance. Will you not sing for me, so that I may have one more dance 10 before I die? 11 It is not much to ask." This pleased the wolf, for he was very proud of his
voice.
" Well," he growled, "a song is good before eating. I often sing before my dinner. To-day I was too hungry to think of it. But I will sing just one song. Then I will eat you. Dance for the last time, now!"
So the wolf sang a song, and the lamb danced his best."
When the wolf stopped, the lamb cried, " That was good.
But you did not sing loud enough or fast enough for me. Is that the best you can do ?"13
" No," said the wolf, "I can sing louder and faster than any
one in the woods. Listen !" So the wolf sang louder and faster. And the lamb danced even better than before. But the wolf made so much noise that the dogs heard it.
They came running into the wood to see what the matter was.14
The wolf had to run for his life.15
But the wise little lamb ran safely 16 home to his mother.
" I have to go without 17 my dinner," growled the wolf. "I alone am to blame.l8 I should kill and eat lambs, not sing for them."
