Fables For Kids | Outsmarting a Fox

Fables for kids | outsmarting a fox is a short story that talks about a smart bunny that outsmarted two foxes that wanted to eat him.

It was a nice sunny day in the middle of the summer, when Gunny the bunny was quinching his thirst by drinking from the little pond close to where he and his family lived. All of a sudden, he noticed something moving slightly in the bushes nearby. Right away, he knew he was in trouble, as two young foxes, one large, one tiny, emerged out of the bushes. He knew he stood no chance outrunning them.

So he said, "Hello friends, my name is Gunny. Are you thirsty? Are you here for some water?"

"You know we're here for you, " both foxes answered, while laughing.

"Oh, I see, you're hungry. But tell me something. How will a little bunny like me fill you both up?" Gunny asked.

"You'll have to do for now until we find something else to eat. So say your prayers, and prepare to be eaten, " the larger fox said.

"Well, how about if I show you where you can get as many bunnies as your hearts desire? Will you let me go?" Gunny asked.

"A lot of bunnies!" the bigger fox exclaimed.

"More than you and your little friend can eat in a month, " Gunny said.

"And where might that be?" the little fox asked.

"My village. I'll show you where all my cousins and relatives are. There are hundreds of bunnies living there, so you can go back as many times as you want, and eat as much as you want, once I show you the secret way to the village, " Gunny replied.

"Okay, you got yourself a deal, bunny. We will let you go as soon as you show us the way, " the big fox said, while looking at the little fox, and winking his eye. He then whispered to the little fox, "We will eat him, first, right after he takes us to his village."

So the three of them started walking, with the bunny leading the way. The little fox asked the bigger fox, "Why won't you let him go, if he's going to tell us where we can find other bunnies to eat?"

"Let him go? Are you crazy? Why would I let him go? That is more food for us! One more bunny is one more bunny. And I will, I mean, we will eat all of them, " the bigger one answered.

"That is why you are the leader of the pack, cousin, " the smaller fox said.

After a few minutes, the bunny stopped and said, "Okay, this is it."

"This is what?" the larger fox asked.

"The entrance to my village, " Gunny answered.

"Where? I don't see anything, " the little fox said.

"Yes, I know. It's sealed, you can't see it. That's how we stay alive, " Gunny said.

"Okay, now show us the way, " the little fox said.

"Alright, alright. You see that bush up ahead? I'll run really fast through it to get to the village. It's like a secret pathway. It won't work if you're slow. Let me go first, and you guys follow, okay?" he asked them.

"Wait a minute. Are you trying to trick us?" the big fox asked.

Gunny thought that his plan had failed, and the fox figured out that he was tricking him. But he breathed a sigh of relief, when he heard him continue to say, "We will go together. I don't want you to run away to the village by yourself, and then we can't find the entrance."

"Okay, okay. You both can go first, and I'll follow, " Gunny said.

"No way, we'll all run together, " the large fox said.

So the three of them started running as fast as they could, but the bunny stopped just before the bush, while the foxes kept on going, falling off a really high cliff, that the bushes had blocked. So both foxes winded up at the bottom of the cliff, while Gunny hopped back to his village, feeling good about outsmarting the foxes.
