Story about Colobok and his transformation into a Hedgehog
Once walked Colobok through the forest.
The light wind blew. The sky was blue and very clear. Colobok rolled singing his song.
Suddenly he saw a fox. Colobok took fright at her and started running away. The fox was very hungry and wanted to eat Colobok, so she set out in pursuit of him. ”I'll eat him” – she decided. Colobok ran too fast and got tired soon.
He stayed near a fir-tree and saw, that a man felled her. “Save me, dear Colobok! I can do something for you in the future!” – the fir asked. Colobok said the man: “Don't fell the fir please! I'll give you some patties!” The man liked what Colobok offered. They sat round the fir and had a rest.
Unexpectedly the fox ran. Colobok wanted to run away again, but the fir said: ”Don't be afraid, Colobok! I'll help you!”
The tree threw her needles to Colobok and he became a nice Hedgehog.
The fox couldn't eat him because he was prickly. Now Colobok isn't a colobok. He's the prickly hedgehog. He proud of this very much. And he's grateful to the fir-tree for such a wonderful cloth!
