Bedtime Stories: The Wounded Lion


I love reading to my kids. I know some parents do not have the time to read to their children, or have problems reading. So I am offering bedtime stories, all for free.

This story is The Wounded Lion from
THE PINK FAIRY BOOK Edited by Andrew Lang

This story is about a girl who has no place in the world. She goes to work for a farmer as a cowherd. She finds a wounded lion and saves it, but her cows disappear. So she is tasked to watch the asses, and the same lion is found wounded again, andagain her charges disappear. Who is the lion? Why do her flocks disappear? Is there a mean giant involved?

This fairy tale is Rated PG. There are no murders, but the girl gets beaten several times for losing all the herds.

You can read the book yourself for free at
