Book - 2014 | Chinese
Rate this:
A little kingfisher catches a fish, but the fish accidentally slips from its mouth. A clam catches the fish but a snipe swoops down to nab the fish. The clam closes its shell and traps the snipes beak. "I will keep you trapped today and tomorrow," the clam says, "and you will die of hunger the day after tomorrow." "If you dont let me go," responds the snipe, "and it doesnt rain today or tomorrow, very soon, there will be a dried up clam on the shore!" Neither the snipe nor the clam gives ground. At that moment, an old fisherman quietly paddles over, catches the arguing snipe and clam and puts them into his fishing net.
