Billy hare is hungry and finds a radish. When he picks it up, Mr. Fox is behind him and wants to eat him. “I’m hungry, too. You’ve my dinner. I’m going to eat you.” he says.
Billy Hare is shocked, but he isn’t scared. He says, “Follow me. I have better food for you.”
They go to a well.
“Look down here,” Billy Hare says “There is something in the water. “What’s that?” Mr. Fox asks surprisingly. “It’s a big and fat hen. Let’s get down and fetch it.” Billy Hare says and gets down with a pail.
“Can you put the hen into the pail?” Mr. Fox shouts. “No. She’s too big,” Billy Hare says, “Come down, please. We can take her up together. Jump into the other pail.”
Mr.Fox does so. When he gets down, Billy Hare gets up. “Good-bye!” Billy Hare gets out of the well and says. Mr. Fox can’t get out.
