A HUNGRY Fox found some bunches of grapes upon a vine high up a tree. He tried to get at [6] them, but could not. So he left them hanging there and went off, saying to himself:—


"They are sour grapes."

That is what people sometimes do when they cannot get what they want—they make believe that what they want is good for nothing.
