A young wolf, whose parents had taught him good manners, went hunting alone in the forest for the first time.
Quite the hunter, he manages to catch:
A rabbit . . .
A chicken . . .
And a little boy.
All of them have a last wish, and his parents had taught him that a last wish must always be respected. So while his prey promises to wait, the young wolf goes off to find:
A book . . .
A song . . .
And a drawing . . .
Unlike the young wolf, however, not everyone keeps their word.
