The Thirsty Crow

Retold by: Chitra Padmanabhan; Illustrations by Shridevi

The neck of the pitcher was too long and slender. His beak was short.

He felt like crying. So he sobbed his heart out. He looked around wildly; his eyes fell on some pebbles nearby.

Yes! He got an idea.

He picked up the pebbles one by one and threw them into the pitcher.

After he had quenched his thirst, he was ready to fly back home. So that he could tell his friends how smart he was.
