French short stories – Learning French through English

Aesop’s Fables – Le loup et le lion


Once upon a time, there was a Wolf. The wolf was hungry and was hunting. The Wolf managed to steal a sheep. He was happily carrying to sheep into the forest when he saw a Lion.


Il était une fois un loup. Le loup avait faim et chassait. Le loup a réussi à voler un mouton. Il emmenait joyeusement le mouton dans la forêt quand il a vu un Lion.


The Lion ran towards the Wolf. The lion is much stronger than the wolf. The Wolf had to drop the Sheep and run far away. The Lion took the Sheep and started walking towards the forest.


Le Lion courut vers le loup. Le lion est beaucoup plus fort que le loup. Le loup a dû laisser tomber le mouton et s’enfuir loin. Le Lion a pris le mouton et a commencé à marcher vers la forêt.


The Wolf shouted from far away, “You have no right to take my property. How dare you? Have you no honour?”


Le loup a crié de loin: «Vous n’avez pas le droit de prendre ma propriété. Comment osez-vous? N’avez-vous aucun d’honneur?


The Lion looked at the wolf. The wolf was far away and the Lion decided that it was not worth his time to chase and give him a good slap.


Le Lion regarda le loup. Le loup était loin et le Lion décida que cela ne valait pas la peine de le chasser et de lui donner une bonne gifle.


He said, “ROOOOAAAAR! Is it your property? Did you buy it? Did the farmer gift it to you? Or did you steal the lamb? Tell me!”


Il a dit: «ROOOOAAHHH! Est-ce votre propriété? Est-ce que vous l’avez acheté? Le fermier vous l’a-t-il offert? Ou avez-vous volé l’agneau? Dis-moi!”


Moral: “What is evil won is evil lost.”


Morale: «Le mal gagné est le mal perdu.»
