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 is the story of the two crows who turn to a fox -- surprisingly, not a jackal -- for advice on how to counter the snake who has twice eaten their eggs in the nest. The fox's advice is what one would expect from the tradition: steal the princess' jewelry while she is bathing and lead the pursuing guards to the snake's hole at the base of the tree. The plan works! A friend in need is a friend indeed.
