English KS1/KS2: Aesop's Fables - 11. The Wolf and the Heron
A greedy wolf gets a fish bone stuck in his throat. Seeing the long beak of the heron, he asks for help. The heron is reluctant, but agrees to help on being promised a reward. Having safely removed the bone, the heron requests its reward, but the wolf states that not having its head bitten off is reward enough.
