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 the sheep on 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 !".
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 boy laughed and said, " There is no wolf here. It was a joke, ha! ha! ha!".
Next day the boy played same trick and annoyed the farmers 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.
