“Oh, my God!” he cries, “Where is my horse?”

“What?” his friend laughs and says. “Aren’t you ridding a horse?”

One day, a crow finds a piece of meat. She picks it up in her mouth and flies to a tall tree. She is going to eat the meat when a fox sees her. He stands under the tree and says, “How nice you are! You are the most beautiful bird in the word.” The crow is very happy to hear these words. Then the fox says again, “I can see your nice face, but I have not heard your voice. Why don’t you sing a song?”

The crow is very happy. She opens her mouth and begins to sing. As she opens her mouth, she drops the meat. The fox picks up the meat and goes away with it



By an unlucky chance a Fox fell into a deep well from which he could not get out.

A Goat passed by shortly afterwards, and asked the Fox what he was doing down there.

“Oh, have you not heard?”said the Fox, “there is going to be a great drought, so I jumped down here in order to be sure to have water by me. Why don’t you come down too?”

The Goat thought well of this advice, and jumped down into the well.

But the Fox immediately jumped on her back, and by putting his foot on her long horns managed to jump up to the edge of the well.

“Good-bye, friend,” said the Fox, “remember next time, never trust the advice of a man in difficulties.”
