Soon the jug was nearly full of stones. The water came to the top. Then the clever crow had her drink.

Story B

The big, black raven wanted a drink. She saw a big jug with water at the bottom. She could not reach the water and wondered what to do.

“I know,” she said. “I shall put some stones in the jug. Then the water will come up to the top.”

After the first stone, the water rose a little. Then she put in another stone, and the water rose more. She put more and more stones in until the water came up to the top of the jug.

“Now I can reach the water. At last I can have a drink,” said the raven. So she had a very long drink.
