Cheese Boy (Dutch)

Cheese Boy (Dutch)

Once upon a time, there was a child from the Netherlands named Klaas van Bommel. He was only twelve years old. Even though he is still small, his appetite is very large, especially when he eats cheese, because Klaas really likes cheese. When Klaas had eaten cheese, he always asked for more and was never satisfied eating cheese. He always asks again and again until he consumes the cheese for the day at his house. Klaas’ mother was astonished at her child’s appetite.

One day, Klaas was hungrily eating cheese and again he was never satisfied. “Mah … I’m asking for more cheese,” Klaas said to his mother. “No, no! You have eaten a lot of cheese today, you have used up the cupboards, “said his mother. His mother deliberately lied to Klaas so Klaas stopped eating cheese because he had eaten a lot today.

Hearing his mother’s answer, Klaas became angry and upset, he went into his room while frowning. “I hate my mother. You can’t even eat cheese, huh … bad mother,” complained Klaas annoyed. After a long time getting angry and grumbling, finally Klaas laid his body on the bed. “I better just sleep, hopefully I will later dream of eating good cheese … and lots of it. After putting his head on the pillow Klaas was fast asleep.

At midnight Klaas woke up. He saw the light in the window. He opened the window, he saw thousands of little fairies flying. One of the fairies then approached Klaas and said, “Hey Klaas, come with us! We have a lot of delicious cheese! “Hearing the word cheese, Klaas became excited,” What ?? Cheese?? Wow, I want it … I want it … I really like cheese, okay, the fairies, wait for me to come with you guys. “Klaas immediately left the house and joined the fairies.

Klaas arrived at the house of the fairies. “Sit quietly and wait a moment, we will bring you a lot of cheese,” said the fairy. Klaas then sat on a chair and he thought to himself, “Wow, this is good. The fairies will give me a lot of cheese, I’ll finish them, I’m already very hungry.”

Then not long after, the fairies came with cheese and threw it at Klaas. “This is Klaas, please eat this cheese and enjoy it,” the fairy said. Klaas immediately catches the cheese and eats it with gusto.

Klaas was very happy because he got a lot of cheese. He continued to eat the cheeses the fairies gave him. But, the fairies were constantly throwing cheese so the cheese began to pile up. Over time Klaas’s stomach was full he could not eat cheese anymore. But, the fairies did not stop throwing cheese. “Already… Already, I’m full, please stop throwing me with cheese … my stomach doesn’t fit anymore with cheese,” Klass pleaded. But the fairies ignored, they did not stop and continued to throw cheese at Klaas until Klaas’s body was buried in cheese, only his head was sticking out between the cheeses.

Suddenly Klaas saw a swarm of fairies carrying enormous cheese, they wanted to throw it at Klaas. “Don’t, don’t … don’t throw the big cheese at me, then my head can be buried in cheese,” Klaas said.

Again the fairies ignored it and immediately threw the large cheese towards Klaas. “Don’t !!! … Aaaa !!!,” Klaas shouted. Bruak !!! Klaas fell from his room and he woke up. He was sweating cold and frightened from having bad dreams.

Hearing something from Klaas’s room, his mother immediately entered. “What’s wrong Klaas, are you alright,” his mother asked. Klaas cried and hugged his mother. Then he told the nightmare to his mother. And since that incident, Klaas has not been greedy anymore. Mother was happy to see the changes in Klaas.

Anak Penyuka Keju (Belanda)

Anak Penyuka Keju (Belanda)

Alkisah, ada seorang anak dari negeri Belanda bernama Klaas van Bommel. Ia baru berusia dua belas tahun. Walau masih kecil, namun selera makannya sangatlah besar, terutama saat ia memakan keju, karena Klaas sangat suka sekali dengan keju. Ketika Klaas sudah menyantap keju, ia selalu minta tambah dan tidak pernah puas makan keju. Ia selalu minta lagi dan lagi hingga persediaan keju untuk hari itu di rumahnya habis dimakannya. Ibu Klaas keheranan dengan nafsu makan anaknya itu.

Pada suatu hari, Klaas sedang lahapnya menyantap keju dan lagi-lagi ia tidak pernah puas. “Mah… aku minta keju lagi mah,” ucap Klaas kepada ibunya. “Tidak..tidak! Kau sudah makan banyak keju hari ini, persediaan di lemari sudah kau habiskan,” kata ibunya. Ibunya sengaja berbohong pada Klaas supaya Klaas berhenti makan keju karena ia sudah makan banyak hari ini.

Mendengar jawaban ibunya, Klaas jadi marah dan kesal, ia pun masuk ke kamarnya sambil cemberut. “Aku benci ibuku. Masa makan keju saja tidak boleh., huh.. ibu jahat,” keluh Klaas kesal. Setelah lama marah-marah dan menggerutu, akhirnya Klaas membaringkan tubuhnya ke tempat tidur. “Mendingan aku tidur saja, semoga saja nanti aku bermimpi makan keju yang uenaak… dan banyak., hem nyam..nyam…,” ujarnya. Setelah meletakkan kepala ke bantal Klaas pun tertidur pulas.

Saat tengah malam, Klaas terbangun, la melihat cahaya di jendela. Ia pun membuka jendela, ia melihat ribuan peri kecil beterbangan. Salah satu peri itu lalu menghampiri Klaas dan berkata, “Hey Klaas, ayo ikutlah dengan kami! Kami punya banyak sekali keju yang lezat!” Mendengar kata keju, Klaas pun jadi semangat, “Apa?? Keju?? Wah mau.. mau… aku sangat suka sekali keju, baiklah para peri, tunggu aku akan ikut dengan kalian.” Klaas pun segera keluar rumah dan ikut bersama para peri.

Sampailah Klaas di rumah para peri. “Duduklah dengan tenang dan tunggu sebentar, kami akan membawakanmu keju yang banyak,” kata si peri. Klaas lalu duduk di kursi dan ia berkata dalam hati, “Wah., enak nih., para peri akan memberiku keju yang banyak, akan kuhabiskan keju-keju itu, aku sudah sangat lapar nih.”

Lalu tak lama kemudian, para peri datang membawa keju dan melemparkannya ke arah Klaas. “Ini Klaas, silahkan makan keju ini dan selamat menikmati,” ujar peri. Klaas pun segera menangkap keju-keju lalu memakannya dengan lahap.

Klaas senang sekali karena mendapat banyak keju. Ia terus memakan keju-keju pemberian para peri. Tapi, peri-peri itu terus-menerus melemparkan keju sehingga keju pun mulai menumpuk. Lama-lama perut Klaas kekenyangan ia tidak mampu makan keju lagi. Tapi, para peri tidak berhenti melempar keju. “Sudah., sudah., aku sudah kenyang, tolong berhentilah melempariku dengan keju… perutku sudah tak muat lagi diisi keju,” ujar Klass memohon. Namun para peri tidak menghiraukan, mereka tidak berhenti dan terus melempar keju ke arah Klaas sampai tubuh Klaas tertimbun keju, hanya kepalanya saja yang menyembul di antara keju-keju.

Tiba-tiba Klaas melihat segerombolan peri membawa keju yang sangat besar, mereka mau melemparkannya ke arah Klaas. “Jangan., jangan… jangan lemparkan keju besar itu padaku, nanti kepalaku bisa tertimbun keju,” ucap Klaas.

Lagi-lagi para peri tidak menghiraukan dan segera melempar keju besar itu ke arah Klaas. “Jangan!!!… Aaaa!!!,” teriak Klaas. Bruak!!! Klaas terjatuh dari kamarnya dan ia terbangun. Ia berkeringat dingin dan ketakutan karena bermimpi buruk.

Mendengar sesuatu dari kamar Klaas, ibunya pun segera masuk. “Ada apa Klaas, apakah kamu baik-baik saja,” tanya ibunya. Klaas menangis dan memeluk ibunya. Lalu ia menceritakan mimpi buruk itu kepada ibunya. Dan semenjak kejadian itu, Klaas sudah tidak rakus lagi. Ibu pun senang melihat perubahan yang ada pada diri Klaas.
