Hey Greta the fox wants the cheese the crow has.

The crow has something the fox desires (a piece of cheese), and all it takes is a bit of flattery to make her forget herself........ and get what he wants.

Basically it goes something like this:

The crow finds a piece of cheese and flys to a branch to eat it. A fox, wanting the cheese for himself, showers the crow with complements. He calls it beautiful and asks if it has a sweet voice as well. The crow lets out a caw, the cheese falls and the fox quickly eats it.

Hey Aslan,

Are you being funny or is that he correct answer above.

No don't worry , I wouldn't joke and mislead you. That basically was the gist of it but I elaborated just in case.

Thank you so very much. Have a great day!
