Walking by the vineyard, a bear spotted the foxeating delicious grapes. “Fox! Fox!” called out thebear. “What’s up?” carelessly replied the fox, as hewas concentrating on eating grapes. “Can you giveme some grapes? I am so hungry,” begged the bear.
There were a lot of grapes left in the vineyard. However, the fox did not want to share the grapes. “No! I will eat them all. I starved for three days toget at these grapes.”
The bear reluctantly walked away. The fox snorted at the bear. ‘Hmm! Trying to eat grapeswith just a word?‘
The fox ate grapes until his stomach became swollen. ‘I am too full. I cannot eat any more. Ihad better go home and take a nap.‘
The fox put his head in the hole. But, what happened? His stomach is too bulky for him to getoutside. “Yelp, yelp! Let’s use all my strength.” The fox exerted all his power from his body, butit was no use.
The fox had no choice but to starve for three days. And, he could come out of the hole onlyafter his stomach had gotten slim. “Oh, my! I’m so hungry.” The fox held his growling stomachand went back home. Watching this, the bear and other animals laughed at the greedy fox.
