This was the beginning of a new life for Michelangelo when he began to create amazing paintings and sculptures.

    Once upon a time there lived a hare. He was a lazy animal but a clever one. He was the same hare who had lost the 'slow and steady race to the tortoise. He was also the same hare who was responsible for getting the lion to jump into the well and drown on hearing his own roar. After that incident, the hare had been declared the king of the forest. Since he was so lazy, he made the tortoise his assistant because he had learnt his lesson to take things slow and steady However, there was one animal that was worrying the hare. And that was the wolf. This was the same wolf who had burnt his tail while trying to scare the three little pigs and also the one who had tried to gobble up Little Red Riding Hood. It was this same wolf who was trying to harass the seven dwarfs.
    When the hare heard from the dwarfs about the trouble created by the wolf, he sent the tortoise to deal with the matter. The tortoise was more happy to take charge of the situation. He told the dwarfs of his plan to get even with the wolf and asked them to wait with a trap at the mine where they worked. The tortoise approached the wolf and told him that he could help him to make a dish of dwarfs for dinner that night for the wolf. The wolf's mouth watered. He decided to follow the tortoise. Vow the tortoise was the slowest creature of the forest and following him meant walking very slowly That was extremely difficult for the wolf. By dusk, they reached the mines and the wolf was exhausted from walking ever so slowly He begged to rest and the tortoise agreed. They sat in an open area surrounded by little hillocks. Suddenly there was a thundering sound and it began to rain stones. The dwarfs were atop the hillocks and were pushing down cart loads of stones they had collected during the day. The tortoise curled into his shell to protect himself. The wolf was caught unaware and had no time to run. In no time, the wolf breathed his last.
    That was pretty much the end of the bad wolf.
