One of Aesop's fables. Bilingual versions of everyone's favorite fairy tales, updated and adorned with simple, lively illustrations. The tale concerns a shepherd boy who repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking a wolfs is attacking his flock. When one actually does appear and the boy again calls for help, the villagers will not come and the sheep are eaten by the wolf. The moral stated at the end of the Greek version is, "this shows how liars are rewarded: even if they tell the truth, no one believes them".
