This story is about a fox who tricks three different animals in order to get what he wants. First, he is unable to have grapes, then he uses flattery in order to get the crow to drop his food, then he convinces a goat to jump in a well in order to use the goat to climb out of the well, later we find out that before he played tricks on the crow and the goat, he had tricked the stork out of eating some of the soup he had made. It ends by the three animals tricking the fox by outsmarting him last.

This is the story of a trickster fox. The fox flatters a crow in oder to steal her food and leaves a goat trapped in a well when he tricks her into helping him out. The crow and Goat get revenge on the Fox with the help of a stork who is also upset with the fox. That night at dinner the fox learns that you should be careful who you trick.

I liked this story and found it was a fun way to share some of Aesop's fables with my children. It was easy to follow and understand. The simplicity of the story and the illustrations made it easy to discuss the morals of the stories with my children.

An easy way to introduce fables to an early elementary classroom. Many of these tales are familiar and it gives a chance to see how a creative author can use many ideas to weave a story.

Four fables woven together nicely into one longer story, with fox getting a satisfying bit of comeuppance at the end. Did you see the book of "Anansi Tales" on his bookcase? :) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823424006, Hardcover)

Four classic fables are artfully woven together to make a single story in this lushly illustrated picture book. "The Fox and the Grapes," "The Fox and the Crow," "The Fox and the Goat," and "The Fox and the Stork" all come together to make an unusually eventful day for a tricky fox who is not quite as clever as he imagines.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:07:32 -0400)

Four of Aesop's fables are combined in this tale about three animal friends who outsmart a tricky fox.
