The Chickens, the Crow, and the Fox: A Fable
This is a 16-page landscape pamphlet telling a story that is new to me but fits well in the fable world. The chickens were letting their coop get messy. They trusted that Aunt Hen would take care of it. Aunt Hen takes care of everything! A crow warned them twice that a fox was making a hole in their fence. They made the same response each time. Then the fox announced that Aunt Hen had won a blue ribbon and was off to the State Fair. The chickens decided not to wait for Aunt Hen after all. If you have a little problem, take care of it fast . . . before it becomes a BIG problem!
