Babe the Blue Ox Minnesota Tall Tales -retold by S. E. Schlosser Well now, one winter it was so cold that all the geese flew backward and all the fish moved south and even the snow turned blue. Late at night, it got so frigid that all spoken words froze solid before they could be heard. People had to wait until sun-up to find out what folks were talking about the night before. Paul Bunyan went out walking in the woods one day during that ¨Winter of the Blue Snow¨. He was knee-deep in blue snow when he heard a funny sound between a bleat and a snort.
In 1589, Peter Stubbe made a deal with the Devil. In Bedburg, a small town near Cologne, Germany, animals began to be mutilated in the night. Soon after, children and grown men and women began to disappear, later found mauled beyond recognition. The townspeople suspected a rogue wolf and eventually a group of men corned the creature. But what they found was not a beast, but a man ––one of their own–– named Peter Stubbe, a well liked and well respected farmer.
I AM actually NOT A GOAT! (rips off goat suit to reveal a human) (The two goats shoot narrator with the guns that apperintly just appered in their hands because this is a pretend story) Goat: You betrayed our trust!

Never Cry Wolf by Farley Mowat is a non-fiction story about naturalist Farley Mowat, on an expedition to find out why so many caribou were being killed. Mowat’s superiors believed that wolves were killing the caribou. He spent almost a year investigating the wolves’ way of life focusing on a small pack made up of two males and a female with her pups. Mowat camped near their den and observed their eating and hunting habits.He observed that wolves rarely ate caribou and when they did, it was the weak and sick ones. Also, with the help of Ootek, a local Eskimo he was able to understand how wolves communicate and hunt, and he saw that these wolves were not a tremendous threat to the caribou.
In 1943, Lucille Fletcher 's radio play Sorry, Wrong Number, was first broadcasted. Several years later, Wade Bradford wrote the children 's play 12 Angry Pigs, a parody of the play 12 Angry Men. Sorry, Wrong Number follows the story of an elderly woman who accidentally overhears a plan for murder. 12 Angry Pigs is about a jury of pigs, and their decision to prosecute the Big Bad Wolf. While these pieces are both plays, their differences far outweigh their similarities.
He lived on the farm with the fellow, but Old Ben (the snake) disappeared, unknown at the end of the story. The second story is "A Glow in the Dark".

This light reminded him of ghosts.

Forest symbolizes something that is wild and scary where Angela Carter says the forest is a place where it helps the wolves to trap people. So forest can also symbolize a patriarchal society created by man that helps the beast to have feast with the
Like I said earlier the man in How to Talk to a Hunter is cheating on the narrator in the story and the werewolf in The Company of Wolves has killed the girl’s grandmother. Both of these women seem to have no problem with the actions of the men, and seem to love them after what they have done. The young girl even gave up her virginity to the werewolf right after he had killed her grandmother. It is clear that either these girls did not care, or they had love for the men and gave them forgiveness. Good Country People differs from the two other stories because it shows the hope of love gone wrong.
