Once upon a time there was an old Granny who loved her grandchildren oh so much. She would do anything to protect them. Granny loved her grandchildren to the moon and back.
Once upon a time there was a big bad wolf who loved to eat old grannies and their grandchildren. That wolf was very big and very bad! Everyone was afraid of him, and no one dared to be out and about when he was around.
One day as the grandchildren played at Granny’s house, they heard a peculiar growl. “What was that?’ asked Uri. They listened again and heard scratching at the door. The eyes of the grandchildren grew very wide, and they became afraid. Grandma saw their fear. She told them not to worry. She was not afraid of any big, bad wolf. Grandma said, “No one will hurt my grandchildren! No one!”
Oh no! The grandchildren could see that big, mean wolf peering through the window with his tongue hanging out. The grandchildren began to cry and hid behind their little, old granny. But that granny was brave and loved her grandchildren oh so much. The wolf began to laugh. He looked right at Granny and yelled, “Little Granny, Little Granny, let me come in!”
Granny looked him right in the eye through the window and said, “Not by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin!” The wolf answered back in a booming voice, “Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in!” He went to the door of the house. And that wolf huffed and puffed and blew the door down. The grandchildren were very frightened and clung to their Granny.
Granny stood at the door as it blew down. She put both hands on her hips and looked the wolf in the eyes. She pointed her teacher finger at the wolf and told him to get out or he would be poop. The wolf laughed at the old Granny. OHHHHH NOOOOO! The wolf started to come at Granny. Granny shouted to the wolf, “Put up your dukes! I’m about to twist your nose and pull out your toes!” That wolf just laughed and put up his dukes.
You should have seen Granny as she beat on that bad wolf. She hit him in the gut and kicked him in the butt. The grandchildren were amazed and started to scream, “Give him the hard elbow! Give him the hard elbow!” This was Granny’s killer move. So, Granny lifted that elbow and dug it into the shoulder of the mean, disgusting wolf. The wolf fell to the ground in great pain and scurried off out of sight.
That wolf was very persistent. He was not one to give up. But Granny was also persistent, and when it came to her grandchildren she would never give up. So, the final showdown was about to begin. That bruised and battered wolf came back. Granny needed a plan. She gathered her grandchildren into a circle around her. She whispered the plan into each of their ears. Granny gave each one a hug and told them how much she loved them.
Granny went to the cupboard. It was not bare. The cupboard was filled with cans of beans. She pulled out a can for each grandchild and one for herself. They ate quickly, gulping every, last bean. The Wolf was sneakily heading towards the door. Granny noticed his tail waving in the breeze. She looked at her grandchildren and asked, “Are you ready team?” They were afraid, but they knew what they had to do.
Granny looked at her grandchildren. She touched her eye. Then she touched her heart. And then she pointed at the grandchildren expressing her love for each, and every one. They slowly walked to the door. Grandma flung the door open and yelled, “Ready! (They all turned their backs to the wolf.) Aim! (They pointed their butts at that nasty wolf.) Fiiiiiiiire!”
The explosion was an explosion like no other. It blew the wolf to the other side of the world, and it was the end of the no good wolf. Teamwork had saved the day! Granny hugged each of her grandchildren. The grandchildren hugged Granny. Granny loved her grandchildren with all of her heart and soul. The grandchildren knew that with Granny around NO ONE would dare mess with any of them. They would always remember the day Granny fought the wolf and the explosion that set them free.
It was weeks before anyone could walk past Granny’s house because of the smell that surrounded it. But inside that house was the love of a Granny for her grandchildren.
