The shepherd boy gets bored watching his sheep all afternoon. All they do is munch, munch, munch, and say "Baaaaa". The shepherd boy tries to get the sheep to play games with him, but they aren't interested. Finally he thinks of a plan to spice up life in the pasture. He cries that a wolf is after his hseep, and all of the townspeople come running. The shepherd boy spends the rest of the afternoon playing with one of his friends. After the wild success of this trick, the shepherd boy cries the next day that there are two wolves after his sheep. Again, the townspeople come running. But when three wolves really do come, will the shepherd boy get the help he needs?
