The Lion and the Fox – Crippled by age, King Noble Lion sets a trap to catch his dinner by inviting animals into his Kingdom, proclaiming he is looking for an heir to the throne. One by one the animals are lured into the trap, all too excited at the prospect of becoming the King’s heir, they take no notice that no one returns after dinner with the King! But not all animals easily fall for such a trick, especially a trickster like Reynard the Fox.
