    A similar variation of this story is very well known in Romanian folklore also. You can see details here:

    I’m quite amazed to see how completely different cultures separated by thousands of miles can still share something: a children’s story.

    Another thing that I have noticed is the word ‘enemy’: it’s the same in Farsi and Romanian. As I progress with the lessons maybe I’ll find more similarities of this kind.

    Thank you Hassan for all your work, great site, great teaching methods!

    You didn’t speak about children’s names: “Shangool”, “Mangool”, “Habeye Angoor”
    The fox didn’t eat “Habeye Angoor”
    Y you didn’t said them?
