The Crow and the Pitcher

We were asked to create a book based on a fable selected from a list of ten. I chose the crow and the pitcher fable by Aesop but decided to give it a modern twist and this was the result…….



A crow perishing with thirst saw some water but he couldn’t get at it. He tried everything he could think of to reach the water but all his efforts were in vain. At last he had the idea to break through the bottom of his picture frame on the page and then the one below it holding the water. However his efforts were in vain because he still couldn’t reach the water. So he pulled down the remainder of the frame that surrounded him and rolled it up into a tube. He then used this as a straw to get at the water. Thirst quenched!
