Little Jack Horner

Short Story - Little Boy Blue

One fine Christmas morning, a little boy called Jack Horner, who lived with his mother, wanted the plum pie his mother had baked. He wanted only the plum but not the pie.

“Mother, can I have the plum inside the pie?” asked little Jack Horner.

“No, you must eat the plum with the pie. Now go sit at the corner and I will bring you a pie,” said his mother.

He went to sit at the corner. His mother gave him a plum pie and left. When he was sure his mother could not see him, he put his thumb inside the pie and pulled out a plum. The pie looked untouched. He put back the pie on the table and thought ‘I am such a smart boy.’

Moral of the story : Do not choosy with your foods.
