The Fox and the Hen
A hen is sitting on some eggs. The eggs are in a nest. The nest is in a box. There are some planks over the top of the box.
A fox comes along and sees the hen in the box. He is hungry and wants to eat the hen. He walks up to the box, but he cannot get into it.
"Good morning, Mrs. Hen," says the fox.
"Good morning, Mr. Fox," says the hen.
"Is this your home?" asks the fox.
"Yes, it is," says the henyr
"How do you get in and out of this box?" asks the fox.
"I want to sleep," says the hen. "Ask the dog, he is coming."
The fox sees the dog and runs away.
