PRACTICE
Once there was a wolf who wanted nothing more that to eat one of the sheep that lived in the meadow. But the shepherd kept a close watch over the sheep. Every time he saw the wolf, he chased him back into the forest.

Then one night, the wolf found a sheep's fluffy, white fleece. The shepherd had forgotten it. "Aha!" cried the wolf. "I think this fleece might solve my problem."

With a tug and a pull, the wolf dressed himself in the fleece. Now he looked just like a sheep.

The wold trotted into the meadow wearing the fleece. He walked among the sheep. And this time, the shepherd didn't chase him away.

That very night, the wolf carried off a large sheep to have for his dinner.

The next day, the wolf wore the fleece again and strolled freely among the sheep. But this time, the shepherd did notice the wolf. He said to himself, "That looks like a fine sheep for my stew tonight."

Before the wolf could leap away, the shepherd grabbed him. And that night, the shepherd enjoyed a delicious stew.
