The Shepherd Boy and the Wolf – Short Story for Kids
Once upon a time, there lived a shepherd boy who takes care of sheep in a village. Every day he used to take the herd of sheep to the top of the hill and bring them down by evening.
But one day he felt really bored. He decided to have some fun. So he shouted loudly, “Wolf! Wolf! Help !”. The farmers in the neighbouring area heard the boy’s cries for help. All the villagers came to the top of the hill to save the sheep. When they came to the spot, they did not notice any sign of a wolf.
The farmer asked the boy, “Wasn’t it you who cried for help ?”. The boy laughed and said, ” There is no wolf here. It was a joke, ha! ha! ha!”.
The next day the boy played the same trick and annoyed the farmers once again. A few days later, a wolf really came.
The shepherd boy shouted for help. But no help came. Everybody thought that the stupid boy was again playing his childish joke.
The wolf killed many of the boy’s sheep. The boy felt sorry for his silly joke.
