There was once upon a time an old goat who had seven little kids， and loved them with all the love of a mother for her children。 One day she wanted to go into the forest and fetch some food。 So she called all seven to her and said， "Dear children， I have to go into the forest， be on your guard against the wolf; if he es in， he will devour you all -- skin， hair， and all。 The wretch often disguises himself， but you will know him at once by his rough voice and his black feet。" The kids said， "Dear mother， we will take good care of ourselves; you may go away without any anxiety。" Then the old one bleated， and went on her way with an easy mind。
On a stormy day, the crab went strolling along the beach.
He was surprised to see the lobster preparing to set sail in his boat. Lobster," said the crab, “it is foolhardy to venture out on a day like this. "
它着到龙 虾准备扬帆出海，很是吃惊。 “龙虾，”螃蟹说，”在这样的天气里出海冒险，你真是太鲁莽了!”
Perhaps so, said the lobster, but I love a squall at sea! " "I will come with you, " said the crab. I will not let you face such danger alone. "
The lobster and the crab began their voyage. Soon they found themselves far from shore.
Their boat was tossed and buffeted by the turbulent waters. "Crab! " shouted the lobster above the roar of the wind.

had to admit that the day had been pleasantly out of the ordinary.
"Yes, of course, we are sinking, ' said the lobster. “This old boat is full of holes. Have courage, my friend. Remember, we are both creatures of the sea."
The little boat capsized and sank. " Horrors ! " cried the crab. "Down we go!" shouted the lobster. The crab was shaken and upset.
勇敢点儿，我的朋友。记住，咱们俩都是海里的动物。” 小船翻了，沉了下去。 “太可怕了!”螃蟹大叫。
The lobster took him for a relaxing walk along the ocean floor. "How brave we are," said the lobster "What a wonderful adventure we have had The crab began to feel somewhat better.
“我们下去喽!”龙虾大喊着。 这样东摇西摆，螃蟹很不舒服。龙虾拉着它放松地在海底 走着。 _我们多勇敢啊，”龙虾说，这次冒险太棒了!” 螃蟹觉得好些了。
Although he uauslly enjoyed a quieter existence, he had to admit that the day had been pleasantly out of the ordinary
