An ugly black crow perched on the branch of a tree. She had stolen a tasty piece of cheese and was about to enjoy her meal.
Just then, a hungry fox passed by and saw the food in the crow's
beak. His mouth watered at the sight, so he thought of a clever plan to
get the cheese for himself.
Looking up at the crow, he said, "I have always admired your beauty
with your soft, shiny feathers and well-curved beak. If your voice is as
fine as your looks, you could be the Queen of the Birds!"
Now the crow wanted to be the queen. So, in order to prove that she
could sing, she opened her beak and made a loud, "Caw!" The piece of
cheese fell from her beak to the ground before she realized her mistake.
As the fox snatched up the cheese, he laughed, "My dear crow, your voice is fine, but your judgment is not! You shouldn't believe everything your hear!"
