The Stupid Boy

December 2002
Folk Tales from around the world

One day a boy's mother sent him to get water from the well.  And the boy went to the well, and peeked over the edge.  In the bottom of the well he saw the reflection of the moon.  He thought the moon had fallen into the well.  so, he thought to himself, I must fish it out with my pail.  He dropped the pail in the water but the pail got stuck on the rock.  So, he pulled and pulled very hard.  Finally the rock gave way, and the pail flew out of the well.  When the boy pulled the pail out he fell on his back.  When he opened his eyes he saw the full moon in the sky and ran home to tell his mother that he had saved the moon.
