One afternoon a big wolf was waiting in a dark forest. He was waiting for something to eat. A little girl came along. She was carrying a basket of food for her grandmother. “Are you carrying that basket to your grandmother?” asked the wolf. The little girl said “yes”. So the wolf asked her where her grandmother lived. The girl told him and the wolf disappeared into the forest. When the little girl opened the door of her grandmother’s house, she saw that there was somebody in bed with a nightcap and nightgown on. She very quickly saw that it was not her grandmother but the wolf, because a wolf in a nightcap doesn’t look like a grandmother. So the little girl took a gun out of her basket and the wolf saw the gun. It jumped out of the bed and ran out of the house into the forest. Moral: It’s not so easy to trick little girls today.
gun = Gewehr
