Listen! Have you ever wondered why volcanoes erupt? Why they explode, spreading rocks and pouring lava everywhere? This is that story.
Gretel's Great Cave
Deep deep underground, in a village full of giants, lived Gretel the Great giant. She was very mean and greedy, and never polite. She lived on the far corner of ‘Big Street’ in a humungous cave all to herself. Everybody knew not to enter Gretel’s cave or else…
One day, Gunther, a troubled teenaged giant had just heardabout Gretel and her huge cave. Gunther was curious and really wanted to enterand see the big great cave and Gretel the Great Giant everybody was talkingabout.
“Mrs. Brown! Have you ever seen Gretel and her Great Cave?!”Gunther shouted. “No! I didn’t and I wouldn’t if in were you!” answered Mrs.Brown. Gunther huffed and stomped and walked away.
Then he came across Mrs. Smith, who was hanging her laundry.”Mrs. Smith! Mrs. Smith! Have you every entered Gretel’s Great Cave?!” Gunther askedwith excitement. Mrs. Smith dropped her laundry basket and answered with fear”No! I didn’t and I wouldn’t if I were you!”. Gunther huffed and stomped andwalked away.
Then he saw a child with her mother” Have you every entered Gretel’sGreat Cave?!” said Gunther. The mother quickly covered her child’s ears andanswered with anger, “No! I didn’t and I wouldn’t if I were you!”
