THE CLEVER FOX
You know foxes are very clever. This is a story about a fox and his friends.
One day a fox feels hungry. He dreams about a nice farm with animals around. He wakes up. He starts walking to find the best food. On the way he meets a rooster. He asks “Where are you going my friend?”
The fox answers “To find food, the best food! You can come with me.”
The rooster says “AII right.” They start walking together. On the way to the farm they meet a rabbit. He says “Oh! It is nice to meet you. Where are you going?”
They say “We are going to a farm to find some food. You can come with us.”
The rabbit says “AII righ.” They aıı start walking together.
After a while they feel so tired. They want to have a rest under a tree. They sit and sleep for a few hours. Later they start walking again. On the way to the village they see a big pig. They talk to each other. The pig asks “Where are you going?”
They say “We want to find some food.Come and join us. We are happy together.”
On the way they sing songs and dance. They feel tired. They take a rest under a tree. A few hours later they feel hungrier. They become tired easily. AII the animals start dreaming about the food they like. In their dream; the rooster eats some wheat, the rabbit eats some fresh carrots, the pig eats some plants and the fox eats aıı his friends one by one.
They all open their eyes. They smile happily after their dremas. Nobody knows that the fox wants to eat the rooster, the rabbit and the pig. They start walking again. On the way to the village they meet a wild tiger and lion. They talk to them.
They tell the lion and the tiger that they are going to find some food.The tiger and the lion want to join them. The lion doesn’t the fox. He knows that he is the cleverest animal in the forest. He walks with them carefully. He watches the fox. At night they don’t want to walk. They to have a rest under a tree again. They all sit. They start talking about their memories. The rooster talks about his nest. The pig talks about his owners. The rabbit tells his memories about running fast. Now it is the fox’s turn, he talks about his cleverness. He is proud of it. After the fox, the wild tiger and lion talk about his clevernees. He is proud of it. After the fox, the wild tiger and lion talk about their sharp claws. A few hours later they all sleep. In the morning the rooster wakes them up.
They all get up. They start walking.Now they are hungrier than before. They reach the village and they find the largest farm. But they don’t know that the farmer has a dog. It can smell other animals very well.The farmer understands that there is a danger. In the afternoon he takes his gun. He goes a little bit far from the farm. He prepares a trap. He digs a big hole. He covers it with some plants to hide it.
The animals see the big farm. They hear the dog. They want to wait for the night. At night the fox says “I am going to look around. Wait form e here, don’t leave.”
All the other animals agree.They wait for him. The fox looks around. He sees the big hole under the plants. He doesn’t tell anyhing to the other animals. He says “ There is no danger, we can g oto the farm. We can find some food there.”
All the animals walk to the farm but they fall.They are all in the hole now except the fox. The fox shoutsand says “Oh! What is happening here? Where are you?” He says that he wants to help them. They all want food but the fox doesn’t bring food.The lion says “l am hungry. I want to eat something.” The fox says “Dear King! You can eat the rooster. Lt is just for you.”
The lion eats the rooster, then the rabbit, then the pig and then the tiger and at last he says “ I am stil hungry. What can I eat now?”
The fox says “ I eat my own heart because I am very hungry. You can do the same thing.”
The lion listens to him carefully. He sees some blood on his claws. He thinks that he can really eat his own heart. He hits himself strong in the heart. He dies. After that the clever fox eats the lion. He doesn’t feel hungry any more. He runs away from the village. The farmer can’t catvh him.
Don’t listen to everybody’s words.Don’t believe them. You can always be in trouble like the rooster, the rabbit, the pig, the tiger and the lion.
The lion is the strongest animal but the fox is the cleverest. People are clever and have loving hearts. They are not bad like the fox.
