Simon’s daddy doesn’t like much fairytales. He thinks they don’t help the children growing up. However, Simon loves them. As it was a tale, this « little boy» not quite like the others tell us his story. His father, who already has seven daughters, and don’t really appreciate them, promised to cut his eighth child’s throat if he’s not a male. To save her baby’s life, Simon’s mommy is forced to lie to her husband. The little girl will be named Simon and will be raised as a boy. A few years later, the father finds the trickery out. Furious of having been fooled, he leaves his daughter in the forest, counting on the wolf to eat her. But the latter is a philosopher... Deeply scandalized by the father’s attitude, the wolf decides, alongside the girl, to give him a lesson.
