The Fox and  the Stork - Short Stories for Kids


A Fox and a Stork were good friends. The Fox thought of playing a prank on his friend one day. 

He went to the Stork and said, "My dear friend. I am preparing a special meal tomorrow and I would love if you could join me." The Stork accepted his invitation.

But as he sat on the dining table, he noticed that the food was served on flat plates. 

The stork was upset as he could only dip the end of his beak in the food. As the fox finished his dinner, he looked at the stork and said with a mocking smile, "Didn't you like the food? You have barely eaten anything." The stork understood that the clever Fox was playing a prank on him. He replied, "The food was delicious but I am not feeling hungry. 



I would like for you to come over to my house tomorrow so that I  may cook your favorite meal. After all, you have been so kind to me." The fox gladly accepted the invitation and reached the Stork's house the next day. As he entered the house, the Stork told him that he had cooked his favorite meal. The smell of the food made Fox very hungry.

Without any delay, Stork directed him to the dining table. The stork served the food in a long jar.  He could barely put his snout or his tongue into the jar as it was narrow.

The Fox understood the Stork's trick and apologized to the Stork for his behavior. The Fox promised stroke that he would never behave like this ever. They became friends again.
