This book has two stories: The Boy Who Cried Wolf and The Adventures of Pinocchio, both are very popular western tales for children, which give a deep and lasting impression when reading it.
The Boy Who Cried Wolf, also known as The Shepherd Boy and the Wolf, is a fable attributed to Aesop. The protagonist of the fable is a bored shepherd boy who entertained himself by tricking nearby villagers into thinking a wolf is attacking his flock of sheep. When they came to his rescue, they found that the alarms were false and that they had wasted their time. When the boy was actually confronted by a wolf, the villagers did not believe his cries for help and the wolf ate the flock (and in some versions the boy).
The Adventures of Pinocchio tells the story of Pinocchio, a puppet come to life, whose various adventures serve to teach him right from wrong. It is considered a classic of children's literature and has spawned many derivative works of art.
