Retold by Angeline T. (8 years old)
Dumby Donkey found a lion’s skin one day. He put it on and pretended to be a real lion.
He saw some sheep grazing in the field. There was no shepherd looking after them. Dumby Donkey thought it would be fun to give the sheep a fright. He decided to chase them.
The sheep ran as fast as they could. Dumby Donkey thought it was very funny and laughed heartily.
Along came Mr. Wolf. He heard Dumby Donkey laughing at his own cleverness. Mr. Wolf hid behind a bush and stared at the lion. He discovered that it was only a donkey in a lion’s skin.
The wolf was famished and he tried to catch the donkey for lunch. Now it was Dumby Donkey’s turn to run for his life but he still ended up in Mr. Wolf’s stomach.
