TITLE OF THE STORY

The Honest Beaver


STORY SOURCE MATERIAL

This is an original piece of work. I enjoy the moral taught through the old fable, "The Honest Woodcutter" and have used the story skeleton to create this adaptation. I thought the beaver would make a good twist.

ABSTRACT/SUMMARY

This fable is about what type of person it takes to be honest and why honesty is important. The Honest Beaver is honest when he loses his means of living, whereas the rich Beaver is dishonest. The Magical Frog sees the Woodcutter’s honesty and rewards him, but when she sees the rich beaver’s deceit and dishonesty, he suffers the fate he has created.
