Once upon a time, there was a wise old king named, Steff, who went for a walk in the big palace backyard. After walking around the yard a few times his legs got tired so he decided to take a seat on a bench under a tree. While he sat there in the shade he noticed a dog inside the palace and called to one of his soldiers…

“Why is there a dog in my palace? Throw it outside! I don’t want any animals in my yard or my palace! Throw it onto the street!” the king yelled.

The soldier did as he was ordered.

Once the dog was outside the palace grounds the king noticed a puff of smoke and it immediately turned into a fairy. The fairy flew with her wings to the king…

“Please do not throw any animals out that come to your castle,” the fairy said. “You are supposed to love them and feed them if they are hungry,” she said. “You need to be taught a lesson, so, I will turn you into a dog.”

With a wave of her magic wand wise king Steff turned into a dog as he sat on the bench.

“Now, how would you feel if I threw you out onto the street?” the fairy asked.

“I’m very sorry and I won’t do it again,” the king replied.

“I’m happy to see that you’ve learned your lesson, King,” the fairy said as she turned him back into the human king. “Never be cruel and throw God’s creatures out again, be kind to everything.

The End

    Hi Champers,

    This is the first time I have read any of your stories. I plan to return and read the rest of them.

    What a cruel king to throw a dog out into the streets, and what a wonderful lesson he learned by becoming one.

    It’s good to see you working so hard on your English. Great job,

    Hi there, Champers and welcome aboard.

    A very nicely written tale you have created here. I think if you keep at it, and with the help of your papa as mentioned in your bio, you’ll be a successful author one day.

    I like the moral of your story here and it shows that greed and selfishness in this world are bad.

    Hello Champers

    I didn’t know you are on here. How good it is to see you and now that you have practised your writing you are putting it on. Very good and I hope you make a book of stories one day.

    I think the king in your story was a bad man and didn’t want to share his richness by feeding the poor hungry dog. I’m glad to see the lesson he learns and hope he’ll not be so selfish next time.

    Hello, Champers and happy new year. I hope 2020 is great for you.

    It’s wonderful to see you writing and posting at such a young age and in English, which is your second language according to your author profile. Well done and I’m impressed.

    Now, on to the story… I always enjoy a children’s tale and particularly one with such as great moral to it. Always treat others the way you’d like to be treated. Very well written with no errors that I can spot. Looking forward to more.
