he ass in the lion's skin
An ass once found a lion's skin. He put it on, and walked towards the village.
All fled when he came near,both men and animals.
The ass felt quite proud. He lifted his voice and brayed, but then everyone knew him.
His owner came up and gave him a sound whipping.
Shortly afterwards,a fox came up to him and said, "Ah, I knew it was you by your voice."
When Peter is 17, he is as tall as his father. So he begins to borrow his father’s clothes when he wants to go out with his father’s clothes when he wants to go out with his friends in the evening. Father doesn’t like this. And he always gets very angry when he finds his son wearing any of his things.
One evening when Peter is about to go out; his father stops him in the living room. He looks at Peter’s clothes very carefully. Then he says angrily, “Isn’t that one of my ties, Peter?”
“Yes, Father, it is,” answers Peter.
“And that shirt is mine, too.”
“Yes, that’s your, too.” answers Peter.
“And you’re wearing my belt!”
“Yes, I am, Father,” answers Peter, “You don’t want to your trousers to fall down, do you?”
A Smart Tortoise
A tiger is hungry, he is looking for food. He sees a frog in front of him.
“Ha ha! A frog! My dinner!” so he rushes at the frog.
Behind the tiger, there is a tortoise. The little tortoise sees it; he bites the tiger’s tail.
“Ouch!” cries the tiger and he looks back. The frog hears the voice and jumps into water.
“Thank you, little tortoise.” says the frog.
But the tiger is very angry. “Bother it! I’ll throw you to the sky!”
“Thank you, I like flying in the sky,” says the tortoise.
The tiger stops, “I will throw you into the river.”
“Oh,no! I can’t swim; I will die if you throw me into the water.” The tiger threw the tortoise into the water quickly.
“Thank you, Mr. Tiger. Bye-bye.” The tortoise and the frog swim away together.
