Folk tales have been around for a very long time.Maybe that is because they both

teach and entertain people at the same time.Most folk tales are interesting for children because

they use animals to portray characters.They get the kids wanting to read them and also the

adults because they have such good life lessons. I like folk tales because they are very

imaginative. So I read them and I also learn a lesson.

I think that My fable that bests combines these goals is The Golden Orange. The

reason for this is that it is pretty imaginative and intersting and yet it still is pretty instructive in

telling that you should not do something that is forbidden.

The Golden Orange

Once upon a time in a far away land their lived a man named Icorus.He was always a

very courious person and he was always finding new and interesting things.One day he was

walking through the woods when he saw a tree that was growing golden oranges.”Wow! I

could sell these oranges and be rich for the rest of my life.”He walked up to pick an orange

when all of the sudden a ghostly figure appeared right out of thin air.”All those who steal this

golden fruit will be punished!” Icorus said, “Whatever, I don’t believe in junk like that. Get out

of my way.” The ghost disappeared and Icorus went to pick the orange anyway.As soon as

Icorus touched the golden orange his hand was completely stuck to the tree and he couldn’t get

off of the tree he screamed as loud as he could but no one ever heard him. He was stuck to that

tree until he eventually died….
