The Boy Who Cried Wolf

A Children's Story Classic

There was once a shepherd-boy who kept his flock at a little distance from
the village.  Once he thought he would play a trick on the villagers and have
some fun at their expense.  So he ran toward the village crying out, with all
his might,--"Wolf!  Wolf!  Come and help!  The wolves are at my lambs!"

The kind villagers left their work and ran to the field to help him.  But when
they got there the boy laughed at them for their pains; there was no wolf

Still another day the boy tried the same trick, and the villagers came running
to help and got laughed at again. Then one day a wolf did break into the fold
and began killing the lambs.  In great fright, the boy ran for help.  "Wolf!  
Wolf!" he screamed.  "There is a wolf in the flock! Help!"

The villagers heard him, but they thought it was another mean trick; no one
paid the least attention, or went near him.  And the shepherd-boy lost all his

That is the kind of thing that happens to people who lie: even when they tell
the truth no one believes them.
