True Friends Story
This is True Friends Story for kids. Deep in the forest, there were three friends, a deer, a tortoise and a woodpecker. They were always seen together. They spent most of their time chatting or playing by the lake side.
One day, a hunter came to the forest and laid the trap behind the bush near the lake. The deer happened to be returning from the lake. He stepped on that trap and was caught in it. He cried out with pain. The deer called his friends and cried, “I have been trapped. Please, come and help me!” Also, read The Two Friends.

The tortoise went and called the mouse that lived in a nearby hole. The mouse and the tortoise started cutting the trap.
In the meantime, the woodpecker flew to the hunter’s camp. The hunter was just coming out of his tent. He had heard the cries of the deer and was anxious to catch him. The woodpecker acted quickly and sat on his head. He pecked twice on his head. The woodpecker pecked him so badly that the hunter cried out in pain and went back to his camp to take rest. The woodpecker’s purpose was solved. He flew back to the deer.
By then, the mouse and the tortoise had cut and opened the trap and the deer was free. They hugged each other and promised to help each other in their bad times. The three friends were united again and lived happily in the forest. You may also like to read, Four Friends Story.
