Beware of the Dog

Written by Roald Dahl.

DOWN below there was only a vast white undulating sea of cloud. Above there was the sun, and the sun was white like the clouds, because it is never yellow when one looks at it from high in the air.

He was still flying the Spitfire. His right hand was on the stick, and he was working the rudder bar with his left leg alone. It was quite easy. The machine was flying well, and he knew what he was doing.

Everything is fine, he thought. I’m doing all right. I’m doing nicely. I know my way home. I’ll be there in half an hour. When I land I shall taxi in and switch off my engine and I shall say, help me to get out, will you. I shall make my voice sound ordinary and natural and none of them will take any notice. Then I shall say, someone help me to get out. I can’t do it alone because I’ve lost one of my legs. They’ll all laugh and think that I’m joking, and I shall say, all right, come and have a look, you unbelieving bastards. Then Yorky will climb up onto the wing a..

The Best Son

Once there lived three sons.

The first one name was Sonu and he was very lazy, the second son name was Ramu and he was quite foolish while the third one’s name was Ronu and he was intelligent brave honest and hardworking.

One day the king announced that he wanted to adopt a son.

He wanted to adopt such a son which should be intelligent brave and honest.

So he had decided to take three tests.

In the first one you’d be given some seeds.

You have to water it daily and the one having the most beautiful florist will succeed.

The second test would be to cross a creepy dark forest filled with slippery fungal.

The third test would be to tell the answers to the questions “How much wool is there in the sheep”.

Good luck to all of you.

In the first one Ronu kept watering the plant but it didn’t sprout.

But he worked hard.

When the king called everybody Ronu came with an empty pot while everybody’s pots were filled with wonderful florist.

But the king didn’t like anybody’s until Ronu’..

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Once there lived three grumpy bears

Papa Bear Mama Bear and a little Baby Bear

One day the mother of the three bear

Prepared porridge with a great care

And served it in a China ware

She said it is hot

And when it will be a little cold you’ll love it a lot

So they were busy in talk

And finally decided that they will take a walk

They went for walk

And a girl named Goldilocks

Was there

With soft skin and Golden shiny hair

She peeked inside just for fun

And found three bowls with porridge in each one

She was hungry so she picked the spoon

She tasted all three bowls and gulped the baby’s one soon

She went to sit on one chair

Of the three bear

She liked the baby bear’s

Chair

She sat on it

And broke it

Then she went upstairs searching for a bed

I like the small one (The baby’s one) she said

And as soon she tried to sleep

She fell asleep

While the three bears came

Playing a game

They were happy as they had storage

Of porridge

But when they came inside

A little p..

Phoebe and the Raven

“Madam Witch, I have a proposal.”

Spring has just arrived and Phoebe is strolling in the woods. She looks around: where is the voice coming from?

“I’m up here on a branch of this tree.”

A handsome black raven is trying to attract Phoebe’s attention. Curious, she raises her gaze. She loves being called Madam Witch.

“And what is your proposal, Sir Black Raven?”

“They say that you are lacking a raven. I don’t want you to imagine for a moment that I am thinking of my own interests, but at the moment I happen to be available.”

Every true witch needs a raven sidekick! Seize the opportunity, Phoebe!

An hour later Phoebe arrives at the hut. She has an air of playful mystery.

“Come out of the sugar bowl, Cricket. Guess whom I have brought home with me? You won’t be able to complain that you are lonely anymore.”

“A bird! A bloody bird! You know fine well that birds and crickets don’t get on! Mother Cricket tells bedtime stories of monstrous crows that carry away little crickets! In addi..

Christine’s adventure

Christine, a little girl with big brown eyes and dark curls, lives in a tiny cottage in the countryside. She spends her days with her faithful friend Nosey. Her trusty and loving mate is a long-haired and sweet eyed dog called Nosey, because he’s really curious and always looking around everywhere. Playful and cuddly, he’s always with her never leaving her alone. Nosey is wherever his little mistress is.

Christine’s father is a lumberjack and is always in a near wood to ensure that the trees are lush and healthy. When he sees a sick tree he cuts it and sells the wood.

He checks the animals. If he finds an injured one he takes care of it in a small room of his cottage and when it is well it’s free again.

Around the tiny cottage there are many trees that give shelter in Winter and there are many flowers that brighten it up with their flickering colours in Summer and Spring .

In Autumn nature changes the colour of leaves in many different shades and then slowly they fall from branches..

Mr. Hunchback

It is a story of three people who think they accidentally killed a poor man but the truth turns out to be way stranger than they imagined.

Long time ago in China, when the King was passing by the town he saw few people making fun of a poor man. They were embarrassing him in public due to his hunchback. The King ordered his manager to bring Mr. Hunchback to his palace and ordered everyone to treat him as his special guest.

Following his orders, The Royal Chef prepared special grilled fish for Mr. Hunchback. While serving the meal chef was telling Mr. Hunchback that king really likes him and now nothing wrong will ever happen to him. Fish was so delicious that Mr. hunchback gulped the whole fish in one go. Within a second of his gulping he fell from his chair and fainted. Looking at this Chef and his assistant ran towards Mr. Hunchback & tried different ways to get him back to his senses but nothing worked. Assistant asked The Chef, “did you remove the fish thorns before serving him?” ..

Phoebe and the Big Bad Wolf

Phoebe and the Big Bad Wolf

For now Phoebe is happy to be a fairy, but she tells everyone that she was born a witch. Mr Cricket doesn’t want to annoy her.

Winter comes. It is cold, snowy and frosty. Phoebe and Mr Cricket warm themselves on the fireplace with firewood from the forest. Someone knocks on the door.

Who can it be? Don’t open the door, Phoebe!

“Phoebe, it’s me, the wolf. Open up it’s terribly cold out here.”

Mr Cricket takes his head out of the sugar bowl and gestures to Phoebe to open the door, but Phoebe refuses.

“I won’t open the door. You’re the Big, Bad Wolf.”

Mr Cricket is angry. “Phoebe, you told everyone that you’re a witch. Witches are brave, they are not afraid of anything. Open the damn door and let him in. Let’s hear what he has to say.”

The Wolf rushes in and sits in front of the fire place. He decides to talk after a few minutes.

“Phoebe, I have to ask you a favour. Hunting season has started and wolves are in danger.”

Phoebe shrugs. “What can I do? Y..
