The Special Carpenter
Once upon a time,there was a boy called Lu Ban.
Lu Ban loved wood.鲁班很喜欢木头。
He wanted to be a carpenter.
In fact, he wanted to be a very,very good carpenter.
Lu Ban needed to find a good teacher.
So he said goodbye to his parents and left home to find a teacher.
He walked and walked.他走啊走。
He was very tired, but he didn’t stop.
Then he saw a very high mountain.
He could not see any road across the mountain.
“How am I going to cross this mountain?” he thought.
Then he saw an old man near the mountain.
Lu Ban asked the old man, “Is there a road to cross the mountain?”
“There is no road,” said the old man.
“No one can pass this mountain.
It is too difficult,” he said.
But Lu Ban carried on.
He climbed and climbed.
It was very dangerous,but he didn’t stop.
Finally, he reached the other side.
Then he carried on walking.
Lu Ban found a very good teacher.
The teacher told Lu Ban to clean his tools for seven days.
Lu Ban did this.
Then the teacher told him to make one thousand holes in some wood.
Lu Ban did everything the teacher said.
Then the teacher said,
“Now I know you really want to be a good carpenter.
I will teach you.
Lu Ban was very happy.
Lu Ban stayed for three years with his teacher.
Then he became a great carpenter.
He is famous all over China till today.
