THE SILLY KID

ONE day a Kid climbed upon the roof of a house, and this made him feel very proud and brave. As he was looking around and thinking how high he was, he saw a Wolf in the yard below. He knew that the Wolf could not get him, and so he began to call him names and make fun of him.


[Illustration]

"Well, well!" said the Wolf; "you are not half so brave as you seem to be. It is not you that laughs at me; it is the high roof where you stand."
