Young Peter lived with his grandfather near the big woods.  He knew that he was not allowed to go out in the woods alone.  The big wolf lived out there and may hurt Peter.  But, one day, Peter did wander out and he left the gate open.  As the duck and the bird kidded with each other, the cat snuck up and tried to get the bird.  But, they had more to worry about.  The wolf was there and was about to gobble them up.  After you read the story, listen to the music and see if you can picture it in your head.
SUBJECTS:     Fairy tales.
