The Little Girl and The Wolf
by James Thurber
One afternoon a big wolf waited in a dark forest
for a little girl to come along
carrying a basket of food to her grandmother.
Finally a little girl did come along
and she was carrying a basket of food.
"Are you carrying that basket to your grandmother?" asked the wolf.
The little girl said yes, she was.
So the wolf asked her where her grandmother lived
and the little girl told him
and he disappeared into the wood.
When the little girl opened the door of her grandmother's house
she saw that there was somebody in bed
with a nightcap and nightgown on.
She had approached no nearer than twenty-five feet from the bed
when she saw that it was not her grandmother
but the wolf, for even in a nightcap a wolf does not look
any more like your grandmother
than the Metro-Goldwyn lion looks like Calvin Coolidge.
So the little girl took an automatic out of her basket
and shot the wolf dead.

Moral ~ It is not so easy to fool little girls nowadays as it used to be.
