Some days later, Tom plays the trick again. He shouts, “Wolf! Wolf! Help!” Some men come. They ask, “Where is the wolf?” Tom laughs and laughs. “Go home,” he says. “There is no wolf.” The men are very angry. They say, “Don’t play this trick again.”
A few days later, a big wolf comes. Tom sees the wolf. He cries, “Wolf! Wolf! Help! Help!” The men say, “It is only a trick. There is no wolf.” The wolf kills many sheep. Tom is afraid. He runs away.
