Swedish Dual Language short stories – Learning Swedish through English

Aesop’s FablesGrodan och musen


A simple and young mouse was happily drinking water from a pond. A cunning frog was watching the mouse. He thought of a very evil plan.


En vanlig, ung mus drack gärna vatten från en damm. En listig groda såg på musen. Han tänkte ut en mycket ond plan.


The frog thought, “CROAK! CROAK! I have a very evil plan. How smart I am!”

The frog swam up to the mouse and spoke to him in a very sweet voice.


Grodan tänkte ”Kvack kvack! Jag har en mycket ond plan. Så smart jag är! ”


Grodan simmade upp till musen och talade med honom med en mycket söt röst.



“CROAK! CROAK! How are you Mr. Mouse? Why are you outside in the sun on such a hit day when you can cool off in the pond?”


“Kvack kvack! Hur mår du Herr mus? Varför är du ute i solen en sådan varm dag när du kan svalka dig i dammen? ”


The mouse replied, “SQUEAK! SQUEAK! But I do not know how to swim, Mr. Frog. I would surely drown.”


Musen svarade: ”PIP PIP! Men jag vet inte hur jag ska simma, herr Groda. Jag skulle säkert drunkna. ”


The cunning frog replied, “I know how to swim very well. Why don’t I take you with me?”

The mouse was very happy and agreed. The frog tied a string to the mouse’s leg and then to his leg and then swam around the pond. The mouse was very happy. Soon, he wanted to go out since he was tired. The evil frog had his own evil plan. He dived deep into the water. Deep, deep, deep he went and the mouse drowned.


Den listiga grodan svarade: ”Jag vet hur man simmar mycket bra. Varför tar jag dig inte med mig? “

 Musen var väldigt glad och de kom överens. Grodan band ett snöre i musens ben och sedan till hans ben och simmade sedan runt i dammen. Musen var väldigt glad. Snart ville han vila eftersom han var trött. Den onda grodan hade sin egen onda plan. Han dök djupt ner i vattnet. Djupt, djupt, djupt tills musen drunknade.


The frog thought, “Ha Ha Ha. What a foolish mouse. How smart I am to have fooled him”

When he came back to the land to untie the string, a hawk saw the dead mouse. He dived down and in one swoop, caught the mouse and flew away. The frog was tied to the mouse and was carried away.


Grodan tänkte ”Ha Ha Ha. Vilken dum mus. Hur smart jag är att lura honom ”

När han kom tillbaka till landet för att lossa snöret såg en hök den döda musen. Han dök ner i ett slag, fångade musen och flög iväg. Grodan som var bunden till musen och fördes bort.


The frog shouted, “Help! Help! Someone untie me.”

The hawk saw the frog and said, “Oh wonderful! Meat and Fish for dinner! What a dumb frog you are?”


Grodan ropade: ”Hjälp! Hjälp! Någon tar mig. ”

Höken såg grodan och sa, ”Åh underbart! Kött och fisk till middag! Vilken dum groda är du? ”


Saying so, he flew back to his nest. The frog learnt its lesson but it was too late.


Med det sagt, flög han tillbaka till sitt bo. Grodan lärde sig sin läxa men då det var för sent.
