Fable Aesop
The Kid And The Wolf
printer friendly version
A Kid, returning without protection from the pasture, was pursued
by a Wolf. Seeing he could not escape, he turned round, and said:
"I know, friend Wolf, that I must be your prey, but before I die I
would ask of you one favor, you will play me a tune to which I may

The Wolf complied, and while he was piping and the Kid was
dancing, some hounds hearing the sound ran up and began
chasing the Wolf. Turning to the Kid, he said, "It is just what I
deserve; for I, who am only a butcher, should not have turned
piper to please you."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
