Masha and the Bear

The moral of this tale is the importance of keeping your wits about you and not losing your head. Masha was a little girl who lost her way in the forest and was captured by a bear. As Masha was a very good cook and housewife, the bear did not let her leave the house. One day, Masha made some tasty pies and asked the bear if it would take them to her grandmother. The bear agreed and Masha climbed into the basket of pies. The bear went into the forest, but while it was on its way, it decided to eat one of the pies. Fearing that she would be discovered, Masha called out: “How dare you eat someone else’s pies!” The bear was so frightened that it dropped the basket and ran away.
