The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Paperback Book


The tale concerns a shepherd boy who repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking a wolf is attacking his flock.

When a wolf actually does appear, the villagers do not believe the boy's cries for help, and the flock is destroyed.

The moral shows how lying is not rewarded.
