There is a big grey wolf at loose in the neighborhood, but Peter isn’t scared. He even goes so far as to go beyond the gate, and his goose that follows him gets swallowed by the wolf! Now Peter is determined to catch the wicked wolf. With the help of a little bird, Peter sets a trap for the wolf and soon has hing hanging from a tree by his tail. Though victorious, Peter is merciful. Instead of letting the wolf be shot by hunters, he convinces the hunters to take the wolf to a zoo. Translated from Russian by Maria Carlson, this is one of the best retellings of the traditional Russian tale.
