Fables de la Fontaine. Book in Progress (post 21)
Let’s welcome our new friend!
Storks are amazing animals. They’re so beautiful and elegant and sweet and have such a great sense of fashion There are different kinds of storks, but I decided to represent a White Stork because she loves to wear red tights to match her red beak.
I’m so glad that I got to study this wonderful bird in detail. All I knew about Storks before was that they’re often hired by the Post Office as baby carriers.
Our Stork for the book is a very special one. She received an invitation for dinner from the Fox, so she got all fancy wearing her favorite pair of 10-button-waterproof-extra-high boots. But guess what? She arrives at Mr’ Fox’s house to find out that she can’t eat the food because he served it (soup!) in a very swallow plate. Mr. Fox did it on purpose. Imagine her disappointment, just look at her expression. She’s about to cry. But wait a minute! Our Stork is so smart, very soon she will teach the bad fox a good lesson by putting him in a similar situation.
See? The golden rule here is: do to others what one would wish for oneself.
You can learn more about The Fox and the Stork fable here.
I’m working on the bad fox now.
See you tomorrow!
