In a lush green forest, a clever fox and a hungry crow lived. One sunny day, the crow found a piece of cheese. As the crow flew to a branch, the fox noticed the cheese. The fox, being cunning, had a plan. He complimented the crow on her beautiful voice. The crow, flattered, opened her beak to sing. The cheese fell from her beak, and the fox quickly grabbed it. The crow learned not to trust flattery from strangers. From that day on, the clever fox and the wise crow became friends, always looking out for each other in the forest.
