THE TURTLE AND THE GEESE & THE GINGER BREAD MAN





THE TURTLE AND THE GEESE


The Turtle and the Geese is a fable, most likely of folk origin, early versions of which have been found in both India and Greece. Long ago, near a little pond in the forest, there lived a lot of animals. There were monkeys, birds, squirrels, anteaters, snakes, elephants, frogs, snails, butterflies... There was also a turtle. She was a real chatterbox. She would chatter with all the animals that came to the pond for a drink. She talked so much that she went on the other animals’ nerves.

THE GINGER BREAD MAN


The Gingerbread Man first appeared as a short magazine story in 1875, but since then has been retold and adapted many times. A famous story about a childless woman who bakes a gingerbread man, who suddenly leaps up and runs away. The farmer and several animals try to catch the Gingerbread Man but are unsuccessful, which is why the most famous line from the tale is “run, run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man!”. I run, I run, my feet are walking fast, Catch me if you dare, catch me if you can the speedy, delicious Gingerbread Man
