WALT: Answer comprehension questions.The Fox and the CraneOne day a Fox invited a Crane to dinner. He liked to amuse himself at the expense of his guests, so the only food he provided was a thin soup served in a shallow dish. The Fox had no difficulty in lapping up his soup, but the Crane did. As much as she tapped her long, thin beak against the bowl, she could not manage to swallow a single drop of soup. She was just as hungry at the end of the meal as she had been at the beginning.
The Fox professed his deep regret at seeing her eat so little. ‘Oh dear,’ he said, ‘I do hope the soup was not too salty for your taste.’ The Crane did not answer. All she did was beg the Fox to do her the honour of returning the visit the next day.
The Fox accepted the invitation and arrived at the appointed hour. The Crane greeted him kindly. The food smelt excellent, and the Fox was looking forward to satisfying his keen appetite. But when dinner was served, the Crane produced two jars with very tall, narrow necks. The Fox looked the strange vessels up and down. The Crane, with her long beak, ate the food quite easily, and soon her jar was empty. But the Fox could only walk round and round his jar, licking at its neck and sniffing the delicious food inside.
The Crane professed her deep regret at seeing the Fox eat so little. The Fox was angry, but went on his way without complaining. The Crane had paid him back with his own coin.
