The Grateful Beasts And The Ungrateful Prince The Grateful Beasts And The Ungrateful Prince

The Grateful Beasts And The Ungrateful Prince
Once upon a time there was a King, and he had a son. And this son was so cruel and disagreeable, that he took a delight in hurting people, and never spoke to anybody without an oath or a blow. He was a thorn in the flesh to everybody he came across; he was like grit in the porridge, like a fly in the eye, like a stone in the shoon. And they called him the Wicked Prince. One day the Wicked Prince went down to the river to bathe, along with a number of servants. By-and-by a great storm came...

The Goblin And The Sneeze The Goblin And The Sneeze

The Goblin And The Sneeze
Once upon a time there was a very powerful Goblin, who haunted a little house just outside the gates of a city. Nobody else lived in this house. There was a big black beam that ran across from one side to the other, up in the roof; and there this Goblin perched. For twelve years he had served the King of the Goblins faithfully, and as a reward he was now permitted to gobble up any man who sneezed inside that house; and, indeed, that is why these creatures are called Goblins. But if, when a man sneezed, some one else... Short Stories - Post by : snake - Date : November 2011 - Author : W.h.d. Rouse - Read : 2734

The Monkeys And The Gardener The Monkeys And The Gardener

The Monkeys And The Gardener
Once upon a time there was a beautiful park, full of all manner of trees and shrubs, with beds of flowers set here and there, and no end of fruit-trees. A gardener used to take care of this park; pruning the trees when they made too much wood, and digging the ground, and watering the flowers in dry weather. It happened that there was a fair to be held away in the city, and the gardener very much wanted to go. But who would take care of the park and garden? If his master came in and found all the flowers... Short Stories - Post by : Chrissy - Date : November 2011 - Author : W.h.d. Rouse - Read : 4734

The Talkative Tortoise The Talkative Tortoise

The Talkative Tortoise
Once upon a time there was a Tortoise that lived in a pond. He was a most worthy Tortoise, but he had one fault, he would talk in season and out of season; all day long it was chatter, chatter, chatter in that pond, until the fish said that they would rather live on dry land than put up with it any longer. But the Tortoise had two friends, a pair of young Geese, who used to fly about near the pond in search of food. And when they heard that things were getting hot for the Tortoise in that pond,...

The Mouse And The Farmer The Mouse And The Farmer

The Mouse And The Farmer
Once upon a time there was a Mouse, who made his hole in a place where there were thousands and thousands of golden sovereigns buried in the ground. Now there was a Farmer who owned the land where this treasure was buried; but he did not know about it, or else of course he would have dug it up. He often noticed the little Mouse sitting with his head peeping out of the hole, but as he was a very kind Farmer, he never hurt the Mouse; and now and then when he was having his own dinner, he would throw...

The Dishonest Friend The Dishonest Friend

The Dishonest Friend
There was once a man who went on a journey, and he asked a friend to take charge of his plough till he should return. The friend promised to take great care of it. But no sooner was the man gone than he sold the plough and put the price in his own pocket. Was not that a mean trick to serve a friend? The man came back, and asked his friend for the plough. "Oh, I am so sorry," the friend replied; "my house is infested with rats, and one night a very big rat came and ate it up."...

The Wise Parrot And The Foolish Parrot The Wise Parrot And The Foolish Parrot

The Wise Parrot And The Foolish Parrot
Once upon a time there was a man who had two pet parrots that could talk very nicely; indeed they had more sense than most people have, and when their master was alone he used to spend the evening chattering with them. They cracked jokes like any Christian, and told the funniest tales. But this man had a thievish maid-servant. He had to lock everything up, and even as it was, never turned his back but she was filching and pilfering. One day the man had to go away on a journey. Before he went he took out the two parrots,...

The Axe, The Drum, The Bowl, And The Diamond The Axe, The Drum, The Bowl, And The Diamond

The Axe, The Drum, The Bowl, And The Diamond
Once upon a time there was a poor young man who went out into the world to seek his fortune. He went aboard a ship sailing across the ocean; and after they had sailed for a year and a day, suddenly a great storm arose. The rain descended, and the wind blew, and it blew so hard and so wild, that the ship went miles out of her course, and the skipper could not tell where they were. And then, in the middle of the night, a great crash came, and the ship was dashed upon a reef. The waves beat... Short Stories - Post by : amithist - Date : November 2011 - Author : W.h.d.

The Crocodile And The Monkey The Crocodile And The Monkey

The Crocodile And The Monkey
Once upon a time there was a deep and wide river, and in this river lived a crocodile. I do not know whether you have ever seen a crocodile; but if you did see one, I am sure you would be frightened. They are very long, twice as long as your bed; and they are covered with hard green or yellow scales; and they have a wide flat snout, and a huge jaw with hundreds of sharp teeth, so big that it could hold you all at once inside it. This crocodile used to lie all day in the mud, half... Short Stories - Post by : littleprincess - Date : November 2011 - Author : W.h.d. Rouse - Read : 4530

The Hypocritical Cat The Hypocritical Cat

The Hypocritical Cat
Once upon a time there was a troop of Rats that used to live in holes by a river side. A certain Cat often saw them going to and fro, and longed to have them to eat. But he was not strong enough to attack them all together; besides, that would not have suited his purpose, because most of them would have run away. So he used to stand early in the morning, not far from their holes, with his face towards the sun, snuffing up the air, and standing on one leg. The Rats wondered why he did that, so...

The Giant Crab The Giant Crab

The Giant Crab
Once upon a time there was a lake in the mountains, and in that lake lived a huge Crab. I daresay you have often seen crabs boiled, and put on a dish for you to eat; and perhaps at the seaside you have watched them sidling away at the bottom of a pool. Sometimes a boy or girl bathing in the sea gets a nip from a crab, and then there is squeaking and squealing. But our Crab was much larger than these; he was the largest Crab ever heard of; he was bigger than a dining-room table, and his claws...
