The Monkey

A Punjabi Story by Mohindro Ram Thaper & Kamleish Ram Parfect


Once upon a time, there was a naughty monkey who lived on the rooftops of a little town.
One day, the monkey spied a man in the street eating some delicious popcorn, and he thought to himself, ‘I will have that popcorn,’ and jumped down from the roof and reached out for the bag in the man’s hand.
Well, the man was very scared because he thought that the monkey was going to attack him, so he dropped the bag of popcorn and ran away, leaving the naughty monkey to pick up the bag and climb back up onto the rooftops so that he might find a nice quiet place to eat.
