the fox and the crow story
Once a crow was looking for something to eat .
Suddenly he saw a piece of cheese . He lifted the piece in his beak .
He flew to a tree nearby . A fox was also in search of food .
While wandering he came under that tree . He saw the crow and his piece of cheese .
His mouth watered . He wanted to have it . He was very cunning .
He hit upon a plan to trick the crow . He said to the crow . ” You are a fine bird .
Your wings are very pretty . Your voice must be very sweet .
Would you not sing me a song ? ” The foolish crow was taken in .
He opened his beak to sing . The piece of cheese fell down .
The fox ate it up and ran away .
Moral: Beware of flatterers .
