Aesop's Fables and Fairy Tales for Kids & Adults
 

aesop's fables fairy tales for kidsOne of the fables from our complete collection of Aesop's Fables.

The Frog and the Ox

'Oh Father,' said a little Frog to the big one sitting by the
side of a pool, 'I have seen such a terrible monster! It was as
big as a mountain, with horns on its head, and a long tail, and it
had hoofs divided in two.'

'Tush, child, tush,' said the old Frog, 'that was only Farmer
White's Ox. It isn't so big either; he may be a little bit taller
than I, but I could easily make myself quite as broad; just you
see.' So he blew himself out, and blew himself out, and blew
himself out. 'Was he as big as that?' asked he.

'Oh, much bigger than that,' said the young Frog.

Again the old one blew himself out, and asked the young one if
the Ox was as big as that.

'Bigger, father, bigger,' was the reply.

So the Frog took a deep breath, and blew and blew and blew,
and swelled and swelled and swelled. And then he said: 'I'm sure
the Ox is not as big as But at this moment he burst.


Self-conceit may lead to self-destruction.
