The wolf and the seven
The Wolf and the Seven Little Goats: A Fairy Tale by Jacob GrimmContinuing my Italian studies, I read this translation of the classic story while waiting for our flight to Adelaide, and was reminded of the wonderful passage from the middle section. The wolf has already made an unsuccessful attempt to enter the house of the seven little kids, but been betrayed by his hairy black paw. In the original:
So lief er zum Müller und sprach: Streu mir weißes Mehl auf meine Pfote. Der Müller dachte: Der Wolf will einen betrügen, und weigerte sich; aber der Wolf sprach: Wenn du es nicht tust, fresse ich dich! Da fürchtete sich der Müller und machte ihm die Pfote weiß. Ja, so sind die Menschen.
Then he ran to the miller and said: Sprinkle some white flour on my paw. The miller thought: the wolf is planning something bad, and he refused; but the wolf said: If you dont do it, I will eat you! Then the miller was scared, and he made the wolfs foot white. Yes, that is how people are.

By Grimm Brothers Once upon a time there lived an old mother goat in a pretty little cottage on the edge of the forest. She had seven little billy goats, and she loved them all dearly. On occasion she would have to leave the cottage to get food for herself and her kids, and today was one of those occasions. She called all her kids together to give them a little lecture on safety. If he comes here and sees you out and about he will surely gobble you all up, all of you, your skin, your ears, your teeth, your guts, everything. I think that wily old wolf must have been hiding behind a tree and watching the old mother goat, because only a few minutes later there was a loud knock on the door. So the wolf went away, and thought about how he could disguise his voice.
