Once upon a time there lived a wolf. One day, he was very hungry and began to prowl in a village nearby. He hoped to lay his hands on a piece of meat.
After a while, he came upon a nurse who was scolding a little child. She was saying, “If you don’t stop crying this instant, I will feed you to the wolves! Stop crying now!” But the child did not listen to her and kept on crying. Now, this wolf was very foolish and he thought that the nurse really meant what she said and was going to give away the child. The hungry wolf waited and waited. But the nurse did not throw away the crying child. After a long time, the child stopped crying and the nurse took him home. Finally, the foolish wolf walked away, hungry and bitter.
