The Honest Woodcutter


A woodcutter accidentally dropped his axe into a river. He just could not afford to swim in the deep waters and could not buy another one so he just stared helplessly into the water. One moment, a fairy appeared and held out an axe made of gold to him. The woodcutter did not take it as it did not belong to him. his honesty did not allow him to take the axe made of silver either which the fairy tempted him with. Finally, the fairy held out an axe made of wooden handle.
"That's mine. Thank you!" The woodcutter smiles. Seeing his honesty, the fairy gave him all the three axes.
