The boy who had courage

One day, thieves came to a big house near our village. They came in the middle of the night and hid their car in a bush. They went into the house and told everybody to lie down. They stole many things: a radio, a television set, and all the money in the house.

A boy lived in a little house near the big house. He had heard a sound that woke him up. He looked out and saw the thieves, but they did not see him. He ran out to call for help. He ran quietly along a bush path to call the villagers. They all came back with him quietly and hid in the bush. When the villagers saw the thieves’ car, four of them pushed it gently through the bush to the chief’s house.

Later, the thieves came out with all the things they had stolen. They wanted to get away but they could not find their car. The villagers then pounced on them and began to beat them. They took the thieves to the chief’s house. They got back all the things the thieves had stolen and the villagers were very happy that they had caught the thieves. They carried the boy high on their shoulders and said, ‘You are our hero!’ In the morning, they took the thieves to the police station.
