It was a fine day, A crow was flying when she saw many pieces of cake at a cake-stall. There wasn't anybody around. So, the croe quickly flew down and grabbed a big piece of cake with her beak. Then , away she flew to a tree.

Just as she was about to eat the cake, a fox came by. Now, this fox - a very cunning animal - wanted the cake very badly. However, the crow would not give it to him.

"How can I get it from the crow?" the fox thought slyly. Then he had an idea.
"Oh, Beautiful Crow!" he said. "Your feathers are so black and beautiful. There is no other bird as pretty as you. And your voice - such a sweet, melodious oone, Please sing me a song."
The stupid crow was extremely pleased. She fell for the cunning fox's flattery, and opened her mouth to sing. Alas, when she did so, the cake fell out of her mouth.

The clever fox grabbed the cake and laughed," Ha! Ha! Ha! I tricked you. There isn't any other bird as vain as you!"
