One day her Mother ask her to take some brownies (made by her aunt ALICE's recipe) and some
ginseng tea to her Grandmother's house. Her Mother warned her to stay on the path so she would not get lost in
"I'll do just as you say" promised Little Sheltie Pumpkin Hood.
She followed the path into the woods and had only been walking for a few moments when she ran
into a wolf. She did not know what a wicked sort of animal he was so she was not afraid of him.
"Good Day" said the wolf. "Where are you going so early" he ask her?
"To my Grandmother's house to take her these brownies and tea" she replied.
"Where does she live" ask the wolf ?
"About another half and hour from here" said Little Sheltie Pumpkin Hood.
The wolf thought to himself, This tender young thing is a juicy morsel. She'll taste even better than the old woman.
You've got to be real crafty if you want to catch them both. Then he walked next to her, and after a while he said,
just look at all the beautiful things around that you. I think you should take some time to enjoy them.
Little Sheltie Pumpkin Hood looked around and saw how the woods were full of beautiful flowers. So she thought
to herself, If I gather a bunch of fresh flowers and other natural things...I could make Grandmother some Native American
crafts on the way to her house, she'd certainly like that. It's still early, and I'll arrive on time. So she ran off
the path and plunged into the woods to look. She plucked one and then she thought she saw another even prettier
flower and ran after it, going deeper and deeper into the forest. But the wolf went straight to the grandmother's house
and knocked at the door.
"Who's out there?" ask her Grandmother.
"Little Sheltie Pumpkin Hood. I've brought you some brownies
and tea. Open up."
"Just lift the latch," the grandmother called. "I'm too weak and can't get up."
wolf lifted the latch, and the door sprang open. Then he went straight to the grandmother's bed without saying a word
and gobbled her up. Next he put on her clothes and her nightcap and lay down in her bed.
Meanwhile, Little SheltiePumpkinHood had been making a dream catcher for her Grandmother
when she noticed that it was getting late and continued on her way again. She was puzzled when
she found the door open, and as she entered the room she called out, "Good morning!"
But she received no answer.
Next she went to the bed and drew back the curtains
There lay her grandmother with her cap pulled down over her face giving her a strange appearance. "Oh, Grandmother,
what big ears you have!"
"The better to hear you with."
"Oh, Grandmother, what big hands you have!"
better to grab you with."
Grandmother, what a terribly big mouth you have!"
"The better to eat you
No sooner did the wolf say that than he jumped out of bed and gobbled up poor Little Sheltie Pumpkin Hood.
After the wolf had satisfied his desires, he lay down in bed again, fell asleep, and began to snore very loudly.
Jerry Garcia and Janice Joplin's SPRITS happened to be passing through the woods and felt that something was
terribly wrong. They entered into the room, went to the bed, and saw the wolf lying in it
with something moving inside him.
Jerry Garcia took some scissors and started cutting open the sleeping
wolf's belly. After he made a couple of cuts, he saw the little orange cap shining forth, and after he made
a few more cuts, the little Sheltie jumped out and exclaimed, "Oh, how frightened I was! It was so dark
in the wolf's belly."
Soon the grandmother came out also. She was alive but could hardly breathe.
Little Sheltie Pumpkin Hood quickly fetched some large stones, and they filled the wolf's body with them.
When he awoke and tried to run away, the stones were too heavy so he fell down at once and died. Everyone was quite delighted.
Jerry Garcia skinned the fur from the wolf for Little Sheltie Pumpkin Hood to make Native American Crafts with. Janice
Joplin sang to grandmother while she ate the brownies (made by Aunt ALICE's recipe) and drank the ginseng tea.,
Soon Grandmother regained her health.
Meanwhile: Little Sheltie Pumpkin Hood was so greatful to have been saved by such Wonderful
people....she decided to take singing lessons and become a contestant on American Idol.
