Model answer

A clever fox

One evening, a fox saw the moon reflected in the still waters of a well. He thought that it was a piece of delicious golden cheese. He was very hungry. He wanted to eat the cheese. Without thinking any further, the fox leapt into a bucket that was hanging on a rope attached to a pulley. As the fox was heavy, the bucket went right down into the well.

When the fox got to the bottom of the well, he realized that he had been mistaken. What he saw was only a reflection of the moon. The fox wondered how he would get out of the well.

Just then, a wolf happened to appear on the scene. He peered into the well. As soon as the fox saw him, he said, ‘Mr Wolf, do you want to share this delicious cheese with me?’ If you do, take hold of the end of the rope, and let yourself down here.’
