the rabbit goes to the fox's house. he looked in through the window and sees the fox lying in bed with his eyes closed. he thinks, "is the fox really dead or is he pretending to be dead? if he's not dead, he'll catch me when i go near him." so he said, "the wolf says that the fox is dead. but he doesn't look like a dead fox. the mouth of a dead fox is always open." when the fox hears this, he thinks, "i'll show him that i'm dead." so he opened his mouth.

the rabbit knows that the fox isn't dead, and he rans away quickly.

the titmouse's reward


during the han dynasty, about two thousand years ago, to the north of huayin mountain, there lived a family called yang. they were farmers, and had only one child, who was so precious to him that they named him treasure pao.


yang pao was not only clever, kind, and quick-witted, but he was also very good looking with his clear eyebrows and bright eyes. his parent shaved all of his hair off except for two locks on the top, which they tied into two knots. everybody agreed that he was very cute.

杨宝不仅聪明、善良、机敏,而且眉清目秀,一表人材。他的父母剃光他的头, 只留下头顶的两撮头发,扎成两个发髻 .每个人都 承认他很聪明 .

yang pao loved nature. he spent a lot of time playing in the forests of huayin mountain. one day when he was nine years old, he was playing outdoors as usual. all of a sudden he heard a cry above him. he looked up and saw a hunting owl had just snatched a little bird, a titmouse, out of the air. the owl was so startled to discover someone watching it hunt that it dropped the titmouse, which fell to the ground. it was so dazed it just lay there without moving.

杨宝热爱自然。他时常在华阴山的森林里玩。九岁的时候,一天他跟往常一样在外边玩。忽然他听到上方传来一阵惊叫声。他抬头一看,见一只猫头鹰刚在空中抓住了一只山雀 .发现有人在看见它捕猎,猫头鹰受到惊吓,丢下了山雀。那只山雀被摔昏了,躺在地上一动不动。

ants then came to take it away for food, but the titmouse had been hurt by the owl's claws and the fall to the ground, so it couldn't move. yang pao ran over and picked the titmouse up, brushing away the ants. he took the titmouse home and raised it in a bamboo cage.


he loved his little bird. he fed it chrysanthemum petals and tended to its wounds until it was strong enough to fly. then he took it to the forest and let it go.

他很珍爱这只小鸟。他用菊花的花瓣来喂它,还照料它的伤口, 直到它康复能够飞翔 .之后他把它带到树林里放生了。

"you're free now! watch out for owls! goodbye!!"

"你现在自由了! 小心猫头鹰 !再见了!"

not long afterwards, he had a strange dream. a child dressed in brown clothes came to thank him for saving his life. he presented pao with four priceless white jade bracelets, saying, "sir, i am an envoy of the heavenly queen. you have saved my life. i would like to show my gratitude by presenting these four immaculate jade bracelets to you, with my blessing that your children and grandchildren be as spotless as pure jade, and hold posts in the top ranks of the government."


yang pao did not want to take the gift, but the little boy dressed in brown insisted, so he finally took the bracelets. as soon as he did, he woke up and found that it had just been a dream.


"that sure was a strange dream," he thought, shaking his head.


yang pao's sons, grandsons, great-grandsons, and great- grandsons were as spotless as pure jade. for four generations, his descendants all held posts in the top ranks of the government.

杨宝的儿子、孙子 、曾孙……,都像纯洁的玉一样无暇。他的四代子孙都是高官。

英文故事 篇五


a raven saw a swan and desired to secure for himself the same beautiful plumage.

supposing that the swan's splendid white color arose from his washing in the water in which he swam, the raven left the altars in the neighborhood where he picked up his living, and took up residence in the lakes and pools.

but cleansing his feathers as often as he would, he could not change their color, while through want of food he perished.


他猜想天鹅一定是经常洗澡,羽毛才变得如此洁白无 瑕。于是,他毅然离开了他赖以生存的祭坛,来到江湖边。

他天天洗刷自己的羽毛,不但一 点都没洗白,反而因缺少食物饥饿而死。

英文故事 篇六


she had a little house of her own, a little garden too, this woman of whom i am going to tell you, but for all that she was not quite happy.

if only i had a little child of my own,she said, then, indeed, i should be quite happy.

and an old witch heard what the woman had wished, and said, oh, but that is easily managed. here is a barley-corn. plant it in a flower-pot and tend it carefully, and then you will see what will happen.

the woman was in a great hurry to go home and plant the barley-corn, but she did not forget to say ;thank you; to the old witch. she not only thanked her, she even stayed to give her six silver pennies.

and what do you think happened? almost before the corn was planted, up shot a large and beautiful flower. it was still unopened. the petals were folded closely together, but it looked like a tulip. it really was a tulip, a red and yellow one, too.

the woman loved flowers. she stooped and kissed the beautiful bud. as her lips touched the petals, they burst open, and oh! wonder of wonders! there in the very middle of the flower, there sat a little child. such a tiny, pretty little maiden she was.

they called her thumbelina. that was because she was no bigger than the womans thumb.

and where do you think she slept?

when she slept little thumbelina lay in her cradle on a tiny heap of violets, with the petal of a pale pink rose to cover her.

and where do you think she played? a table was her playground. on the table the woman placed a plate of water. little thumbelina called that her lake.

round the plate were scented flowers, the blossoms laying on the edge, while the pale green stalks reached thirstily down to the water.

she peeped at her, this ugly toad.

how beautiful the little maiden is, she croaked. she will make a lovely bride for my handsome son. and she lifted the little cradle, with thumbelina in it, and hopped out through the broken window-pane, down into the garden.

at the foot of the garden was a broad stream. here, under the muddy banks lived the old toad with her son.
