Once upon a time, a howling wolf leaped at a pig, a duck, and a cow -- and got no reaction. No running away, no frightened oinks or quacks or moos. "What's wrong with you?" growled the wolf. "Can't you see I'm a big and dangerous wolf?""I'm sure you are", replied the pig. "But couldn't you be big and dangerous somewhere else? We're trying to read. This is a farm for educated animals. . . ".Educated animals? That gets the wolf thinking. Maybe he, too, could learn to read. And as this witty and winning tale reveals, an exciting new chapter in the wolf's life begins!
