The Clever Tortoise

This is a one of the best funny short stories for kids. Once upon a time, there was a very dense forest. In the forest, there lived a cunning yet dumb fox. Everybody was taking a nap after they had lunch. Mr. Fox was very hungry as he didn’t have anything. He could not find any prey for him to eat.” Oh! My stomach!” cried the fox. He wandered around the deep forest for the food.

Suddenly, he saw his friend Mr. Tortoise on a river bank and quietly went near him and caught him. Mr. Tortoise was afraid and did not know what to do. But, he was not able to eat it. Now can you tell why? It is so because the shell was very hard and tight. But he had a great idea! The tortoise said, “Mr. Fox, You may soak me in the water, my shell will soften and then you can happily eat me.”

The fox was very foolish. So, he believed the tortoise and said, “Okay!’ He kicked the tortoise into the water. The tortoise slipped away from the fox and swam to safety. Thus, he was saved. The fox was so stupid he did not even realize he was getting fooled by the tortoise. The tortoise laughed, “Ha! Ha! Ha!”
