The Goat's Kids and the Wolf

Once upon a time a goat made a hut in the woods and had many children so the goat would often have to search the forest for food. When ever the goat would leave she would lock up the door behind her and tell her children not to open it. When she came back she would knock on the door and sing.
“Children your mother has come, she has brought mil which runs across the steps and onto the damp earth.”
At which point the little goats would quickly unlock the door and let her in so that she could feed them. 
The wolf heard this all and waited for the mother to leave once more. That’s when he went to the hut and sang in a deep voice:
“Children your mother has come, she has brought mil which runs across the steps and onto the damp earth.”
At first the baby goats thought that their mother had come but they realized that their mothers voice was far sweeter then the wolves so they didn’t open the door. So the wolf ran off to hide in the woods once more.
After a while their mother cam and sang: “Children your mother has come, she has brought mil which runs across the steps and onto the damp earth.”
The little goat let his mother in and told her how the wolf had come and tried to trick them so that he could eat them. So their mother warned them to be especially careful when she was gone and not to let anyone in who didn’t sound like her. 
The next time the goat left the wolf ran up to the house and sang once more: “Children your mother has come, she has brought mil which runs across the steps and onto the damp earth.”
This time however the wolf changed his voice to sound like that of the goats mother and so the young goats lit him in. The wolf rushed into the house with his mouth wide open. He swallowed each of the kids save one which hid in the oven. 
After some time the mother goat returned home and no matter how hard she sang her children didn’t answer so she pushed her way into the house which she found empty save for the one kid in the furnace. 
On discovering what had happened the mother goat sat down and began to cry. After she’d cried for some time she went out into the woods and met the wolf who she asked to go for a walk with her. 
The two of them went into the woods and found a pit in which some robbers had recently boiled mush so that it was still filled with hot coals. The mother goat then dared the wolf to jump over the pit as she did herself. 
The wolf then tried to jump over the pit but his belly was too full of her kids and so he fell into the pit onto the hot coals. The wolf’s belly then burst into flames and burnt open freeing the goats kids which ran and jumped out to their mother. 
And they all lived happily ever after.
