Storyboard Text

  • Wolf! There is a wolf chasing the sheep!!
  • Don't cry wolf, when there is no wolf!!
  • Wolf! There is a wolf chasing the sheep!!
  • There was a shepherd boy who was bored as he watched the village sheep. To amuse himself he sang out, "Wolf! The Wolf is chasing the sheep!"
  • Don't cry 'wolf' when there is NO wolf
  • Save your frightened song for when something is wrong!
  • The villagers came running to help the boy drive the wolf away. But when they arrived, they found no wolf. The boy laughed when he saw their angry faces. "Don't cry 'wolf'," said the villagers, "when there's no wolf!"
  • Wolf! Wolf!!
  • They went back down the hill. Later, the boy sang out again, "Wolf! Wolf! The wolf is chasing the sheep!" He watched the villagers run up the hill to help him drive the wolf away.
  • When the villagers saw no wolf they madly said, "Save your frightened song for when there is really something wrong! Don't cry 'wolf' when there is NO wolf!" But the boy just grinned and watched them go down the hill once more.
  • Later, he saw a REAL wolf attacking his flock. He leaped to his feet and sang out as loudly as he could, "Wolf! Wolf!" But the villagers thought he was trying to fool them again, and so they didn't come.
  • At sunset, everyone wondered why the boy didn't returned to the village with their sheep. They went up the hill to find the boy. They found him crying. "There really was a wolf here! The sheep are dead! Why didn't you come?" "We thought you were lying again."
