The Fox and the Goat 狐狸和山羊
A thirsty Fox looks for water.
It’s so hot today. And I’m so thirsty. There’s no water anywhere.
The Fox keeps looking. Far away, he sees something.
Wait ! What’s that ? I think it’s a well. I’m saved ! There must be water there.
The Fox runs towards the well. He is very happy.
I was right. There’s lots of water here. It looks so cold and delicious. But how can I get the water? The well looks very deep. Oh, what shall I do ?
The Fox thinks and thinks .
I can’t stand it anymore. I’m too thirsty. I’ll just jump in . Here I go ! (splash)
The Fox jumps into the well .
It is so cool in here . The water tastes so fresh and cold . I can drink it all day . But wait a minute . This well is deeper than I thought . My paws can’t reach the top . Oh my ! Now I’m im big trouble . How can I get out ? There’s no one nearly . There’s no one to help me . What have I done ! Boo – hoo .这里好凉快。这水尝起来又干净又清凉。我可以喝它一整天。可是等一等。这井比我想象的深多了。我的手爪够不到顶。我的天!现在我有大麻烦了，我怎么出去呢?这附近没有人。没有人来救我。我做了什么事?呜…呜…
The Fox is very scared . He can’t think of a way to get out of the well .
He cries all morning .
Then he hears a familiar voice from far away . Suddly , he has a good idea .
I’m thirsty and hot , Where is the water ? I need a drink right now .
The Goat sees the same well .He walks towards the well.
Ahha ! There’s a well , I found some water ! I can have a drink there , Thank goodness !
The Goat gets closer to the well . He hears a familiar voice .
How are you today ,Goat ?
What was that ? Who said that? I don’t see anyone around. Where did the voice come from?
The Goat keeps looking around . But can’t find anyone .
This is strange . I hear a voice , but there’s no one around .
I’m here , Goat , I’m inside the well .
Inside the well ? Whose voice was that ?
The Goat looks into the well .
Oh my goodness , Fox ! What are you doing down there ?
I was thirsty . So I came down here for a drink .
How is the water ? Is it fresh and cold ?
Of course . The water down here is fantastic . It’s the best water I’ve ever tasted . And I’m enjoying it all by myself . 当然，这里的水真是太棒了。这是我喝过最棒的水了。而且都由我一个人享用。
Well ,um , I’m thirsty , too . Can I come down and join you ? I just need one drink .
Well , let me think about it .
The Fox pretends to thinking about something .
Come on , Fox , I’m your friend . Let me come down .
Well , all right , Just this once . I didn’t want to share the water with anyone . But since you are my friend , I’ll let you come down .
Thanks a lot , Fox . You are too generous, I’m coming down now .
The Goat also jumps into the well and makes a big splash.
Welcome ,Goat , Try the water , How is it ?
Mmm… it is delicious . This is the best water in the world . Thank you for sharing it with me .
It’s nothing . I’m just glad you like it . But don’t you think it’s too crowded in here ? It was fine when I was alone . Now it’s too small .
I’m sorry , shall I get out now ? 我很抱歉，我现在该出去了吗?
No , it’s okay . I’ve had enough water for today. I’ll be leaving now. You can drink some more.
Thank you , Fox , You are too kind .
Keep drinking. I’m just jump on your back and climb out now.
The Fox steps on the Goat’s back and swiftly gets out of the well .
Thank goodness , I’m out .
(echoing voice from the well)Are you there , Fox ? I’m finished drinking. I want to get out now. Help me up. please.
I’m sorry , Goat , I can’t help you. If I do . I might fall in again.
Please help me out , I’m not thirsty anymore. And it’s getting dark in here.
That’s too hard , Goat. You should have thought of a way out before. Next time , think before you act, okay? I’m busy ,I must be going.
Do’t leave me here alone , Fox . I’m afraid , How can I get out by myself ?
Trick another foolish animal like yourself. Good luck , Good-bye .
MORAL: Think carefull before you act .
