STEP 1: FABLES

The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing


A Wolf found great difficulty in getting at the sheep owing to the vigilance of the shepherd
and his dogs. But one day it found the skin of a sheep that had been flayed and thrown
aside, so it put it on over its own pelt and strolled down among the sheep. The Lamb that
belonged to the sheep whose skin the Wolf was wearing began to follow the Wolf in the
Sheep's clothing. So, leading the Lamb a little apart, he soon made a meal off her - and
for some time he succeeded in deceiving the sheep, and enjoying hearty meals.
Appearances are deceptive.
