Here is one of my favorite stories one more time...
In the Land of Fools - alias the "Ugly melon monster"

He offered to kill the 'monster'for them. When he had
cut the melon from its stalk, he took a slice and began to eat it.
The people became even more terrified of him than they had

crying, 'He will kill us, next, unless we get rid of him.'
It so happened that at another time another man also

happen to him. But, instead of offering to help them with the
'monster', he agreed with them that it must be dangerous, and
by tiptoeing away from it with them he gained their confidence.
he spent a long time with them, in their houses, until
he could teach them, little by little, the basic facts which
would enable them not only to lose their fears of melons, but
even cultivate the fruit themselves.
