When the wolf came in through the door, all seven of us kids scattered. We hid everywhere we could find. I got into the clock-case, and it was the one place the wolf didn’t look. By the time my mother came home, the wolf had eaten everyone but me.
I whimpered from the clock-case, and my mother released me. I told her what happened. You can just imagine how she wept.
Then we went out to the meadow to find that wolf.
