THE TALE OF OLD MR. CROW

from The Tale Of Tommy Fox





Mr. Crow has a very solemn look--unless you regard him closely. But it
is a very sly, knowing look, if you take pains to stare boldly into
his eyes. Like many human beings, he is fond of clothes, and he
particularly likes gay ones, but perhaps that is because he is so
black himself.

Anyhow, so long as he can wear a bright red coat and a yellow necktie
--or a bright red necktie and a yellow coat--he is generally quite
happy. One fall Mr. Crow decides to stay in Pleasant Valley during the
winter, instead of going South, and he remembers all at once that he
will need some warm clothing. Now, Mr. Frog, the tailor, and Jimmy
Rabbit, the shoemaker, know just how to talk to Mr. Crow to sell their
merchandise, playing upon his vanity to buy the latest, and even to
"set the styles," but they have to be pretty keen and sly to get the
best of Mr. Crow in the end. Mr. Crow has his good points as well as
his bad ones, and he helps Farmer Green a lot more than he injures him
it is said. Nevertheless, Farmer Green does not figure that way,--and
in justice to old "Jim Crow," you should read of his adventures for
yourself.
