The Cunning Fox
One day, a crow found some grapes and sat on the branch of a tall tree to eat them. At that moment a cunning and hungry fox was walking by. “Mmmm! What a tasty smell,” the fox said, looking up to see where the smell was coming from. “Look at that the crow! He has some grapes,” thought the fox, “Maybe I can get them.”
The fox then sat under the tree and praised the crow’s beauty, “Oh, black crow! Your feather are the shiniest I have ever seen.”
The crow felt happy and started showing his wings off by flapping them.
“Oh, beautiful crow! If you have such beautiful feathers, then you must be able to sing very beautifully as well,” commented the fox.
The black crow started to sing without realizing that the grapes are still in his beak, “Caw, caw, caw.” The bunch of grape fell out of its beak and onto the ground.
The fox the gobbled up the grapes as fast as a bullet and said, “Silly crow. You are not beautiful and you sound terrible. Because of that you are now hungry.”
