One of twenty in the series, found near the counter as we were settling up a large order of books. Sixteen pages with standard computer art. This version has the heron dream up and present the whole plan himself because he is old and finds it difficult to hunt for fish and crabs. He claims that an astrologer told him that the pond would dry up. He carries the fish in his beak. He even carries the crab that way. How the crab can tighten claws around the neck of the heron from there is unclear. The hunter can never be protector. The moral is apt!
