The story of Peter and the Wolf

“As the plucky hero of our story, the tale begins with Peter…

The young boy lives with his grandfather in a clearing in the forest, but one day Peter decides to leave the safety of the clearing and wander into the forest. Leaving the gate open behind him, one of ducks follows Peter out.

“Peter warns the little bird and she jumps into a tree”

The duck swims out into a pond but soon gets into a quarrel with a little bird. However their bickering is ended when Peter’s cat comes along. Peter warns the little bird and she jumps into a tree before the cat has a chance to get her claws in!

“Peter’s grandfather notices that the boy has snuck out”

Soon, Peter’s grandfather notices that the boy has snuck out and dashes into the forest to get him back, scolding Peter for going out alone, “what if there’d been a wolf out there?” he asks the boy.

“A wolf appears in the forest…”

No sooner had Peter and his grandfather returned to their garden with the gate firmly locked behind them, than a wolf appears in the forest…

“The poor duck has nowhere to hide!”

The cat scrambles up a tree to escape the wolf, however the poor duck has nowhere to hide and is quickly gobbled up by the wolf.

“The little bird swoops down, skimming the wolf’s head”

The little bird swoops down, skimming the wolf’s head to distract him as Peter lowers his rope, trapping the wolf by his tail.

“They reach for their guns when they see…”

A group of hunters who’d been tracking the wolf, appear in the forest. They reach for their guns when they see Peter has the wolf, captured in a rope and tied to the tree, but Peter stops the men from firing. Instead, Peter convinces the hunters to help him take the wolf to the zoo where he walks the beast in a victory parade – if you listen very carefully, you’ll hear to faint sound of quaking as the wolf was in such a hurry eat the duck, she’s still alive in his belly!
