Believe Me, I’m not an Egret!
This story is a recreation of a fable originally written in “Kalila and Demna”, an ancient book with Indian roots. In the original story, an old egret tricks the fish into thinking that they are being taken to a safe lake, but they are in fact becoming the egret’s food. Until one day, the crab also asks the egret to take him to the lake and sees the remaining fish bones while riding on his back. He then returns and informs the others.
“Believe Me, I’m not an Egret!” is a parody of the original fable, encouraging the children to think about and question what they hear.
