How Hans the Giant Became a Woodsman
Cerita Inggris Indonesia

Hans the giant decided to work as a woodcutter. On his first day, however, he was not even interested in trying to make a good impression. In the morning, when his colleagues came to wake him to start working in the woods, he just stayed in bed. 

When he finally did decide to get up, the first thing he did was to make chick-pea soup, and then he ate the entire potful. Chick-peas were the secret source of his enormous strength! Then off he went into the woods, pulled up the two biggest trees he could find, and loaded them onto his cart.

On the way back, Hans found the path blocked by a barrier of fallen trees. But it only took a moment forhim to decide what to do: he simply lifted his cart, the two trees, and the horse, high above his head, and setthem down on the other side.

The owner of the woodyard was delighted to see Hans back before anybody else, with two huge trees. Hans, however, did not spend any time chatting. He went back to bed.

When the rest of the woodsmen arrived back, they went at once to complain to the owner. “'Hans is still in bed!” they said, “True,” said the owner, “but while he's there he still manages to get a little work done.” And he pointed to the two enormous tree trunks in the woodyard.


Sengaja di pilihkan dongeng yang terpendek terlebih dahulu agar jika kita hanya membutuhkan satu judul saja maka kita bisa lebih efektif dalam menggunakan waktu berselancar di internet. Jika dirasa masih kurang maka kita bisa melihat juga dua judul lagi cerita dongeng di bawah ini. Semoga dua judul ini juga bisa kita gunakan sesuai dengan kebutuhan kita.

The Magic Jar 2
Cerita Inggris Indonesia

Many years ago, on the east coast of Malaysia, there was a poor fisherman who had a wife and large family to support. One day, while he was fishing, his net felt very heavy. He thought he had caught a large fish. But when he pulled his net out of the water, he saw there was a jar in it. Thejar was tightly closed with a lid, on which were written the words "The Holy Prophet Sulaiman". The fisherman was very pleased.

"Wonderfull" he said to himself. "I'm sure the jar must be very valuable. And it's so heavy there must be something in­side." He quickly removed the lid. Nothing came out except a cloud of thick black smoke. He could hardly see. "How can so much smoke come out of such a small jar?" he asked himself.

Suddenly, there was a loud bang and the smoke whirled round and round and changed into a jinn, or spirit.
The fisherman was frightened. His whole body started to shake. Who are you, sir?" he asked.
"I have been sent to see you by the Holy Prophet Sulaeman."
"But, sir, Allah's Holy Prophet Allah Sulaiman died more than a thousand years ago," answered the fisherman. "How long have you been shut up in a jar?"

"I disobeyed the Holy Prophet Sulaiman. He shut me up in the jar and threw me into the sea. I've been a prisoner inside the jar for a thousand years. I promised myself that if anyone saved me before one hundred years had passed I would give him4 as much money as he wanted. Butif anyone saved me af­ter that time, I would kill him."

"O great jinn, please forgive me. I have not done you any harm. I only wanted to help you."
"I don't care about that," shouted the jinn angrily. "How would you like to die?"

"I am under Allah's protection," thought the fisherman. "He will not allow any harm to come to me." He said to the jinn, "In the name of the Holy Prophet Sulaiman whose name is written on the jar, may I ask you one question before I die?"

On hearing the name of the Holy Prophet Sulaiman, the jinn became frightened. "All right. But be quick and make your question short."

"I don't believe, sir, that such a big person as yourself could come out of such a small jar. Even my hand is too big to put inside the jar."
"What are you talking about! " the jinn answered. "Don't you believe what I told you?"

The jinn shook his body and changed into a cloud of smoke. He sank into the jar. In a flash, the fisherman closed the lid. "Now I can ask you how you would like to die," he said to the jinn.
"Help! Help!" the jinn's voice sounded very faint. "Let me out. I'll give you anything you want. I swear that I won't harm you if you'll let me out."

Although the fisherman was still afraid, he opened the jar and released the jinn. The jinn kept his promise. He took the fisherman to a lake which was full of fish of all colours of the rainbow. The fisher­man did not have to use his net to catch them. They jumped into his boat. He caught as many as he wanted and sold them in the market for a very high price. He never had to worry again about being poor.
