Poor woodcutter accidentally dropped his axe into the river. He was very upset as he had no money to buy another axe.

Just then, a fairy appeared in the river, holding out a golden axe to him.

“I found this axe in the river. Is this yours?”

“That’s not mine.” replied the woodcutter.

The fairy then brought out a silver axe. The woodcutter disowned this one too.

Finally, the fairy held out a wooden axe.

Smiling with happiness, the woodcutter said “That’s mine! Thank you very much!”

The fairy felt very happy seeing his honesty and said “Such honesty deserves a reward!”

She gave the poor man all the three axes and disappeared.

The end.

  1. This was fabulous, Ińigo! (I wonder if mom and dad had tears in their eyes. I did.) 😍

  2. Great one Inigo. I hope you don’t mind when I put this story in my blog. Your story is lovely.

  4. Dear Iñigo,
    You are a very good story teller. I’m not a story teller but I like giving speeches, especially on current issues.
    I’ve made a few short public speeches on freedom of speech regarding to our Federal Constitution. I have to understand the subject well because people can ask hard questions during the Question and Answer session. My audience are adults 🙂

    • Oh my, you’re a public speaker! You are so talented, Ahmad!

I'd love to hear from you. Share your thoughts with me here :)
