Synopsis of a Sample Story - The Fox and the Tiger  狐狸和老虎

The Story : 

One day, a fox was taking a walk in the forest alone. He encountered a tiger who wanted to eat him up. The fox pleaded with the tiger not to eat him, and he said, "You can't eat me up because I am the King of the Forest". The tiger did not believe him and so the fox challenged him to take a walk in the forest. Along the way, they met a snake. When the snake saw the tiger standing behind the fox, he quickly slithered away. A monkey sitting on the ground eating banana, took a quick look at the tiger and immediately climbed up the tree. Similarly, the rhinoceros came and quickly turned away. The fox proudly exclaimed, "Look, even the rhinoceros is afraid of me, so it proves that I am indeed the King of the Forest." With that, the fox licked his lips and said," Now, it's time for my lunch!" The tiger got scared and took to his heels. 


Learning point : When presented with a powerful opponent, fight not with your might but with your wits. 面对强敌时,不要硬拼,只能以智取胜。
