This is the seven little goats and the wolf story. Once upon a time, there lived a mother goat with her seven adorable little kids. They lived in a cozy cottage nestled amidst lush green meadows. The mother goat loved her kids dearly and always warned them about the dangers lurking outside their home.
One morning, as the mother goat left the cottage to gather food for her family, she instructed her seven little kids to stay indoors and not open the door for anyone. She warned them about the cunning and hungry wolf that roamed the forest nearby.
As soon as the mother goat was out of sight, a sly wolf, with a stomach rumbling in hunger, approached the cottage. He stood before the door and called out in a friendly voice, “Open the door, my dear little goats. It’s your mother, and I have brought delicious treats for you all!”

But the seven little goats were wise and cautious. They peered through the window and noticed the wolf’s wicked grin. They recognized that it was not their mother’s voice. The youngest goat, however, was tempted by the mention of treats and began to inch towards the door.
Just as the little goat reached for the doorknob, the older siblings came to their senses and realized the wolf’s trickery. They rushed to the door, barricading it with a sturdy wooden beam. The disappointed wolf let out a frustrated howl and scampered away into the woods.
The little goats, relieved that they had thwarted the wolf’s plan, congratulated each other on their quick thinking. However, they knew that the wolf wouldn’t give up easily. They devised a plan to stay safe until their mother returned.
The eldest goat, with a stern voice, instructed the others to hide throughout the house. One nestled in the fireplace, one hid behind a curtain, another squeezed into a large cooking pot, and so on. They all found clever hiding spots, blending in with their surroundings.
Meanwhile, the wolf, realizing that he had been outsmarted, returned to the cottage. He approached the door cautiously and knocked gently, imitating the voice of their mother. “My sweet little goats, I have returned with a basket of fresh fruits for you. Open the door, won’t you?”
The seven little goats remained silent, their hearts pounding. The wolf grew impatient and started to growl, hoping to frighten them into opening the door. But the goats didn’t budge. They stayed hidden, holding their breath.
Growing frustrated, the wolf decided to take matters into his own paws. He climbed onto the roof, planning to enter through the chimney. Little did he know that one of the little goats had taken refuge in the fireplace.
As the wolf descended through the chimney, he landed right in the midst of the little goat’s hiding spot. Startled, the goat let out a loud bleat, alerting the others. In a frenzy, all the little goats burst out of their hiding places, surrounding the surprised wolf.
Together, the brave little goats butted and kicked the wolf, forcing him to flee in pain and defeat. Their mother arrived just in time to witness their victory. She praised their intelligence and bravery, hugging each of them tightly.
From that day forward, the seven little goats were even more cautious, never opening the door for strangers. They understood the importance of unity, quick thinking, and staying true to their mother’s teachings. And together, they lived happily ever after, safe from the tricks of the cunning wolf.
