Shrill-Voice the Partridge - An Evenk Fairy Tale for Kids

Shrill-Voice the Partridge was sitting in a tree one day when something fell on her head.

"The Sky is falling down!" Shrill-Voice cried. "I am going to go and tell the Eagle about it."

She started on her way, she walked and she walked and she met Long-Neck the Wood Grouse.

"Hullo, Shrill-Voice!" said Long-Neck. "Where, are you going?"

"To see the Eagle. The sky is falling down, so I want to tell him about it," Shrill-voice replied.

"May I come with you?"

"You may!"

Long-Neck the Wood Grouse joined Shrill-Voice the Partridge, and off the two of them started together. They walked and they walked and they met Fat-Sides the Duck.

"Hullo, Shrill-Voice! Hullo, Long-Neck!" Fat-Sides said. "Where are you going?"

"To see the Eagle. The sky is falling down, so we want to tell him about it."

"May I come with you?"

"You may!"

Fat-Sides the Duck joined Shrill-Voice the Partridge and Long-Neck the Wood Grouse, and off the three of them started together. They walked and they walked and they met Grey-Back the Hazel Grouse.

"Hullo, Shrill-Voice! Hullo, Long-Neck! Hullo, Fat-Sides" Grey-Back said. "Where are you going?"

"To see the Eagle. The sky is falling down, so we want to tell him about it."

"May I come with you?"

"You may."

Grey-Back the Hazel Grouse joined Shrill-Voice the Partridge, Long-Neck the Wood Grouse and Fat-Sides the Duck, and off the four of them started together. They walked and they walked and they met Trixy-Vixy the Fox.

"Hullo there, everyone!" Said Trihy-Vixy. "Where are you going?"

"To see the Eagle. The sky is falling down, so we want to tell him about it."

"You've taken the wrong road! I can show you the right one if you like."

"Do please, Trixy-Vixy! We're in a terrible hurry."

"Come along, then!"

Off made Trixy-Vihy the Fox, and Shrill-Voice the Partridge, Long-Neck the Wood Grouse, Fat-Sides the Duck and Grey-Back the Hazel Grouse followed her as fast as they knew how. They walked and they walked and they came to Trixy-Vixy's house which was nothing more than a dark hole in the ground.

"Here we are!" Said Trixy-Vixy "This is the Eagle's house. I'll go in first and you must come after me.

Trixy-Vixy slipped into the hole, sat down there very quietly and waited.

The first to come in after her was Long-Neck the Wood Grouse, and she grabbed him and cut his throat and threw him behind her.

After Long-Neck the Wood Grouse came Fat-Sides the Duck, and Trixy-Vixy grabbed her and cut her throat too.

After Fat-Sides the Duck came Shrill-Voice the Partridge, but when Trixy-Vixy the Fox tried to grab her she gave such a loud cry that Grey-Back the Hazel Grouse heard her and rushed into the fox hole to help her out. The two of them fell on Trixy-Vixy and gave her a terrible hiding and then, before she could turn on them, ran off home as fast as their legs could carry them.

And so no one ever told the Eagle that the sky was falling down.
